dust aerosols, and its interactions with radiation, clouds, and climate.
Anticipated duties include analyzing climate model output, conducting
climate model simulations, developing simple analytical theories, and
supervising graduate and undergraduate students.
Desired qualifications include a Ph.D. in atmospheric science, physics,
engineering, or a related field, strong quantitative and programming
skills, knowledge of the global dust cycle and/or radiative transfer,
experience running atmospheric models and analyzing their output, and
strong scientific writing skills. Applications from women and
underrepresented minorities are particularly encouraged, and U.S.
