Specific areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
climate change and impact (physical, chemical, or biological) observation, simulation, and theory
environmental sustainability (pollution and contaminants, land use, among others)
large-scale energy systems modeling, analysis, operation, optimization, and control
energy generation, transmission, interconversion, storage, and end usage technologies, and the integration of the technologies for achieving carbon-neutral energy systems
materials and processes (physical, chemical, electrochemical, and others) for a sustainable economy
climate intervention via carbon removal, capture, sequestration, conversion and utilization and reflecting sunlight
platforms and algorithms for sustainable computing
Harvard SEAS provides a highly interdisciplinary and collaborative environment, with the opportunity to work with students and colleagues from diverse fields, including strong connections with departments in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences and the professional schools. Harvard has also launched a university-wide climate initiative, including the establishment of the Salata Institute for Climate and Sustainability, with the aim of expanding research and teaching in climate-related fields across the University.
A doctorate or terminal degree is required by the expected start date.
A demonstrated, strong commitment to teaching, advising, and research is desired. Candidates for a tenured appointment should also demonstrate substantial intellectual leadership in their field and the potential for significant contributions to SEAS, Harvard University, and the wider scholarly community.
