the physical or dynamical aspects of meteorology, climate or atmospheric
sciences. Candidates must have demonstrated research experience in an
appropriate area. Preference will be given to candidates specializing in
atmospheric dynamics, with research interests in areas such as clouds
air-sea interactions, coupled ocean-atmosphere modeling, or climate
variability on seasonal and longer time scales. Candidates will be
expected to be able to establish a vigorous research program in an
interdisciplinary environment that includes work on atmospheric chemistry,
geochemistry, the physical climate system, paleoclimatology, atmospheric
dynamics and physics, global climate modeling, and biological and physical
oceanography.

Rank and salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience
