The Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences (EPS) and the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) plan to make a series of hires in the area of climate, beginning with two positions at the assistant, associate (untenured) or full professor (tenured) level with an expected start date of July 1, 2017. We invite applications in the broad area of climate science, including the oceans, cryosphere, land, and atmosphere, as well as their interactions. Approaches involving observations, theory, experiments, and modeling using biology, chemistry, or physics are all welcome. We are especially interested in candidates that will expand and complement existing strengths in climate science within EPS and SEAS.
Required application documents include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, three representative publications, a statement of research and teaching interests, and contact information for 3-5 potential references. We will evaluate applications beginning November 15th, and will conclude when the positions are filled. EPS and SEAS value diversity among their faculty, and we are committed to building a culturally diverse intellectual community. We particularly encourage applications from historically underrepresented groups, including women and minorities.
