Georgia Tech is hiring multiple faculty positions broadly in Climate Science. The advertisement is below, it specifically mentions "the cryosphere and sea level change” as areas of interest for hiring. The School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at GT already has a thriving cryosphere group with ongoing collaborations across climate science, geophysics, planetary, civil, environmental and electrical engineering. Georgia Tech EAS also co-leads the densest network of real-time sea level observations in the world and the upcoming Coastal Equity and Resilience (CEAR) hub at the Georgia Coast. Georgia Tech has top-3 programs in several engineering areas and annually graduates more female and Black engineers than any other university in the United States.
Application review will begin October 1. Please reach out to Alexander Robel if you have any questions about the application, our school or Georgia Tech.

Multiple open-rank tenured/tenure-track faculty positions in Climate Science
The School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences (EAS) at the Georgia Institute of Technology, seeks candidates for multiple open-rank tenured/tenure-track faculty positions in Climate Science, anticipated to begin in August 2023. This search is part of a cluster hire in Climate Science and Climate Change Impacts. We are seeking candidates interested in understanding the mechanisms of the climate system through a variety of approaches, including theory development, observational data synthesis and diagnosis, remote sensing, paleoclimate reconstructions, regional and global climate modeling, and machine learning / artificial intelligence. Areas of particular interest to the department include oceanic and climate dynamics, clouds and cloud-aerosol interactions, carbon and methane cycles, extreme weather and air-quality events, land-atmosphere interactions, hydroclimate, the cryosphere and sea level change. We anticipate several climate-related hires in coming years, and are seeking to strengthen the role of the school as a leader in both the fundamental science of climate and in addressing climate change with scientifically driven solutions.
The successful candidate will be expected to collaborate and connect with other scientists; build a vibrant, externally funded, and internationally recognized research program that addresses scientific questions of fundamental significance in climate science; and provide high-quality teaching, mentor students, and advance equity and inclusion.
An earned doctorate in Atmospheric Science, Oceanic Science or a related field is required before start of employment.
Please include a CV, a statement of research interest, a teaching statement, a statement that summarizes your past or potential contributions to diversity, equity, and inclusion in research, teaching, or mentoring, as well as a list of at least three references who could provide a letter on your behalf upon request through the Georgia Tech online portal at: Georgia Tech Careers
Applications will be considered beginning October 1, 2022, but the search will continue until the positions are filled. Georgia Institute of Technology is located in Atlanta, Georgia and is consistently a top ranked educational and research institution. The School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences is highly interdisciplinary and covers broadly all fields or Earth and space science. EAS hosts a distinct interdisciplinary Ph.D. program in Ocean Science and Engineering in collaboration with the School of Biological Sciences and Environmental Engineering, and contributes to the Ph.D. program in Quantitative Biosciences.
