ATMOSPHERIC CARBON CYCLING, THE DEPARTMENT OF METEOROLOGY
AND THE ENVIRONMENT INSTITUTE, THE PENNSYLVANIA STATE UNIVERSITY: We
are seeking applicants for a tenure-track faculty position at the rank of
assistant or associate professor in the area of atmospheric carbon
cycling. The specific areas of interest include the measurement and/or

biota-atmosphere carbon exchange, and ocean-atmosphere carbon
exchange. The selected applicant will reside in the Department of
Meteorology and will be affiliated with the Environment Institute of the
College of Earth and Mineral Sciences (EMS) through a new initiative
focussing on the global carbon cycle. There is significant expertise
within EMS in diverse aspects of the global carbon cycle, including the
influence of atmospheric CO2 on climate, carbon exchange between the
atmosphere and the Earth's surface, CO2 variations on geological time
scales, and human dimensions of the global carbon cycle. The successful
candidate will be expected to lead a vigorous research program, advise
graduate students, and teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
The position provides nine months of support; an additional three months
of supplementary compensation is possible with external funding.
