From Barbara Emery (emery@ucar.edu).

The CEDAR Science Steering Committee (CSSC) wants to move the annual summer CEDAR Workshop around the country. The 2013 CEDAR Workshop will be held in Boulder from 23-28 June, but the first new location will be Seattle, WA at the University of Washington, hosted by Professor John Sahr. Future locations for 2015 and beyond are to be determined by the CSSC at later times. The list of CEDAR Workshops is at http://cedarweb.hao.ucar.edu/wiki/index.php/Workshop:Main

The 2012 CEDAR Workshop was held in Santa Fe, New Mexico from Sunday to Friday June 25-29. Included on video are the 23rd CEDAR Prize Lecture, the second Distinguished lecture, 3 Tutorials, 6 Science Highlights, and the CESM/WACCM-X Tutorial Workshop. The videos cover 8h 25min on 4 DVDs with breakpoints and tables of contents. The price for a single DVD is $25, while the set of 4 is $90 from Daylight Productions and Rentals (303-440-3334, FAX 303-442-8180, or contact Brian Day at brian@daylightav.com).

(2) Tenure-Track Assistant Professor, Atmospheric Physics position at the College of Charleston - applications due 1 December.


From Jens Oberheide <joberhe at clemson.edu> and Chris Fragile (fragilep at cofc.edu).

The Department of Physics and Astronomy at the College of Charleston invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor position in atmospheric physics to begin fall 2013. Candidates must have a commitment to excellence in teaching undergraduate physics or astronomy (including at the introductory level), in addition to specific courses related to the atmospheric physics program. The incumbent must also establish and sustain an active research program. A PhD in physics, atmospheric physics, or a closely-related field is required, and post-doctoral experience is preferred.

The College of Charleston is a public liberal arts college with approximately 10,000 undergraduates and 1,500 graduate students. The Physics and Astronomy department currently has 18 faculty members and is looking to expand in the area of atmospheric physics. The department currently offers a physics major with a meteorology concentration and hopes to expand this into an atmospheric physics degree.

Qualified applicants should submit

  • a complete curriculum vitae,
  • a statement describing their teaching experience and philosophy,
  • a description of their research background and plans, and
  • the names, addresses, e-mail addresses, and telephone numbers of three professional references

electronically to the search committee chair, Dr. Chris Fragile, at fragilep@cofc.edu

Review of applications will begin on 1 December 2012 and continue until the position is filled. The College of Charleston is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer and strongly encourages applications from women and minorities.
