    Associate Research Professor - Climatology

The Division of Atmospheric Sciences (DAS) of the Desert Research 
Institute (DRI) is seeking an Associate Research Professor in the area 
of aerosol/climate interactions. The successful candidate is expected to 
build a research program studying aerosol radiative forcing and response 
of the climate system. They will integrate observations and modeling to 
explore past and present forcing of the climate system due to aerosols 
and advance research on modeling impacts of future projections of 
aerosol emissions. The candidate will have demonstrated experience 
working with multiple observational datasets to constrain aerosol 
forcing of climate. The candidate will also have demonstrated experience 
performing climate simulations with global climate models. DRI's 
research programs are externally funded with grants and contracts. The 
successful candidate will have a demonstrated capability to attract 
external funding to support their research.

DRI's faculty members are untenured, entrepreneurial and responsible for 
their own salaries from external grants and contracts. This blend of 
academic rigor and private-sector pragmatism has earned DRI a reputation 
for delivering rapid, high-quality environmental science in a 
businesslike fashion. The successful candidate will be encouraged to 
collaborate with DRI's research laboratories, including the 
Environmental Analysis Facility, Organic Analytical Laboratory, Storm 
Peak Laboratory, Carter Family Optics and Acoustics Laboratory, and the 
Applied Innovation Center for Advanced Analytics. The successful

the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) Interdisciplinary Program in 
Atmospheric Sciences, which offers graduate degrees in atmospheric 
sciences. The program is jointly administered by UNR and DRI, offering 
DAS faculty the opportunity to teach courses and advise graduate students.
