The appointment is expected to be at the Assistant Professor level. The new faculty member will be expected to actively pursue sponsored research in the broad area of air quality such as atmospheric sciences, instrumentation, field studies, health effects, climate change, air quality modeling, particulate matter control, and atmospheric dynamics. The successful candidate should have a strong record or potential for interdisciplinary research and successful collaborative investigations in relevant disciplines, as demonstrated in their record of peer-reviewed publications and proposal development. He/she is anticipated to teach undergraduate and graduate level courses.
