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.
