The Department of Physical and Environmental Science (http://www.pens.tamucc.edu) at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi invites applications for two tenure-track faculty positions in Atmospheric Sciences to begin in Fall 2013 or Spring 2014.

The applicant for the first position (job#0054) should be in the field of synoptic, mesoscale and tropical meteorology. Applicant for the second position (job#0054) should be in a broad field of atmospheric sciences including atmospheric dynamics, climate dynamics and other relevant research areas.

Successful applicants will be expected to establish an externally funded research program supporting graduate students in the Environmental Science MS and Coastal and Marine System Science PhD programs and a proposed new MS program in High Impact Meteorology and Incident Response. Both faculty members are also expected to contribute to a new BS program in Atmospheric Sciences. Teaching expectations are normally 3 courses per year with an allowance of reduced teaching in the first year to allow laboratory development.

Post-doctoral experience is preferred. Both positions will be filled at the tenure-track Assistant Professor level.
