CLASS J f J ED j EMPLOYMENT Faculty Positions Eart h System Science Interdisciplinary Center (ESSIC) University of Maryland, College Park Th e Earth System Science Interdisciplinary Center (ESSIC) at the University o f Marylan d invites applications for two tenure-track academic faculty positions pertaining to interactions of the atmosphere-ocean-lan d system. ESSI C is a join t center between the University of Maryland Departments of Atmospheric and Oceanic Science, Geology, and Geography together with the Earth-Su n Exploration Division at the NASA/Goddar d Space Flight Center. ESSI C also administers the Cooperative Institute for Climate Studies (CICS), which is join t with NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) and the National Environmental Satellite and Data Information Ser- vice (NESDIS). The goal of ESSIC is to enhance our understanding of how the atmosphere-ocean-land-biosphere components of the Earth interact as a coupled system and the influence of huma n activities on this system. This is accomplished via studies o f th e interaction between the physical climate system (e.g., El Nino, NAO) and biogeochemi- cal cycles (e.g., greenhouse gases, changes in land use and cover). Th e major research thrusts of the center are studies o f Climate Variability and Change, Atmospheric Composition and Processes, the Global Carbon Cycle (including Terrestrial and Marin e Ecosystems/Land Use/Cover Change), and the Global Water Cycle. Th e manner in which this research is accomplished is via analyses o f in situ and remotely sensed observations along with component and coupled ocean-atmosphere-lan d models. Together this provides a foundation for understanding and forecasting changes in the global environment and regional implications. Data assimilation and regional downscaling provide the means by which the observations and models are linked to study the interactions between the physical climate system and biogeochemical cycles from global to regional scales. Presently, the ESSIC staff is composed of approximately 50 academic and research faculty spanning meteorology, oceanography, geology, and geography. Applications are solicited in one or more of the following general areas: • Land Surface Hydrology, Land-Atmosphere Interactions • Paleoclimate • Marine and/or Terrestrial Ecosystem Feedbacks to the Physical Climate System • Earth System Modeling Th e positions are expected to be filled at the Assistant/Associate Professor level, but applications from senior distin- guished candidates will be considered as well. Th e appointments are state-funded for the nine-mont h academic year. A Ph.D. degree in an appropriate discipline of Eart h System Science is required. Th e successful applicants are expected to demonstrate a commitmen t to excellence in research and teaching and a desire to work in a multidisciplinar y envi- ronment . The successful applicants are expected to participate in the teaching program of the Department of Atmo - spheric and Oceani c Science, Geology, or Geography to guide graduate students toward advanced degrees, to conduct independent, cross-discipline research, to publish research results, and to compete for grants and contracts. In order to ensure full consideration, curriculum vitae, statement of professional goals, and the names of at least three references should be sent by June 30, 200 6 to Professor Ragu Murtugudde Chair, Search Committee Eart h System Science Interdisciplinary Center (ESSIC) 22 4 Computer and Space Science Building, Room 2207 University o f Maryland College Park, M D 20742-2425 Attention: ESSIC Faculty Position For classified advertising information, contact American Meteorological Society,Attn.
