The Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Indiana University (IU) Bloomington invites applications for a tenure-track position in climate modeling to begin in Fall 2019. Applicants with strengths in a general area of earth system modeling, climate dynamics, or land-atmospheric coupled models are encouraged to apply. Experience with regional climate downscaling and high-performance computing will be considered strong assets. The successful candidate will establish an internationally recognized, externally funded academic research program, and have a strong interest in graduate and undergraduate instruction including mentoring of M.S. and Ph.D. student research.
