CALIFORNIA, DAVIS* -- The Department of Land, Air and Water Resources 
and the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, University 
of California, Davis, invites outstanding scholars to submit an 
application for Assistant Professor in Regional Climate Change 
Modeling.  This will be a 9-month academic year appointment with 
11-month term employment to be offered and continued based on academic 
personnel review. The successful candidate is expected to provide 
leadership and conduct innovative research related to regional climate 
change. The ideal candidate would link atmospheric processes with other 
components of the Earth system, especially the hydrologic cycle.  
Experience in developing or modifying regional or global climate models, 
in coupling regional and global climate models, or in applying such 
models to understanding complex and diverse regional-scale 
meteorological issues in California and other locations are preferred.  
Other desirable areas of research experience include: cloud 
microphysical processes; aerosol-cloud-radiation interactions; 
atmosphere-surface interactions (including greenhouse gas fluxes); 
greenhouse gas effects; statistical analysis of complex data sets; 
simulation error reduction, and use of remote sensing data. The 
candidate's research is expected to complement existing UC Davis 
research activities in large-scale and climate dynamics, mesoscale 
modeling, biomicrometeorology, boundary-layer meteorology, hydrology, 
Earth system modeling, paleoclimatology, and atmospheric chemistry. 
Potential areas of research may include predicting and understanding 
changes in precipitation and the hydrologic cycle, temperature, climate 
trends, extreme weather events, and atmosphere--ocean interactions. A 
PhD in meteorology, atmospheric science, or a closely related discipline 
is required. Applicants for this position will be required to teach 
atmospheric science courses at both the undergraduate and graduate 
levels in topics such as climate modeling, geophysical fluid dynamics, 
cloud physics, and radiative transfer. Supervision of graduate students, 
student advising, curricular development, participation in outreach 
programs, and university service are expected. For additional 
information about the position, and to submit application materials, 
please visit http://recruitments.ucdavis.edu. Please include: (1) 
curriculum vitae; (2) names and contact information for three 
references; (3) description of current and projected research; (4) 
summary of teaching interests and experience; and (5) up to three 
publications, all in PDF format.  For more information about the 
position, please contact Dr. Terry Nathan, Search Committee Chair, LAWR, 
trnathan at ucdavis.edu <mailto:trnathan at ucdavis.edu>. Open until filled, 
but all application materials must be received by November 1, 2011 to 
assure full consideration. /UC Davis is an affirmative action/equal 
employment opportunity employer and is dedicated to recruiting a diverse 
faculty community.  We welcome all qualified applicants to apply, 
including women, minorities, veterans, and individuals with disabilities./
