Open Rank Professor – Climate Change Science and Impacts


29 August 2023 - 31 October 2023

The Departments of Atmospheric Sciences, Geology and Geophysics, and the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Utah invite applications for multiple faculty positions at the Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, or Full Professor level beginning as early as July 1, 2024. We seek applications in the broad areas of climate science and impacts and strongly encourage applicants who would interact with and advance the mission of the recently-launched Wilkes Center for Climate Science and Policy, which will separately evaluate successful candidates for prestigious named positions. We are particularly interested in candidates with strengths in any of the following areas: climate and weather extremes, modeling of climate processes, climate change impacts and forecasting, climate detection and attribution, biosphere-atmosphere interactions, paleoclimate and Earth’s history, climate and water resources, and quantitative climate biology, including climate-related disturbance ecology (e.g. wildfires, droughts), climate-related disease ecology, and ecosystem or land-surface modeling.
