We invite applications in the broad area of climate science, including the oceans, cryosphere, land, and atmosphere, as well as their interactions.

We encourage candidates to apply by December 18, 2017, but will continue to review applications until the position is 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.
