Postdoctoral Position in Climate and Atmospheric dynamics at UCLA

UCLA Dept. of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences seeks postdoctoral scholars
in Climate and Atmospheric dynamics, for positions supervised by Prof.
David Neelin and Prof. Gang Chen.

One position will be in the area of tropical moist dynamics and involves a
combination of observational analysis, running and analyzing climate models
and/or stochastic modeling aiming at understanding the moist processes
underlying extreme event statistics and constraining or improving their
representation in climate models. Another position will be in the area of
large-scale atmospheric dynamics and transport.  The goal of the project is
to understand the large-scale atmospheric transport and mixing of moisture
and/or trace gases, how the atmospheric circulation may respond to future
climate change, and the implications for extreme weather events, using a
combination of observations, theory, and/or idealized and comprehensive
modeling. The positions are available immediately. Each position would
initially be for one year, but renewable for up to two years, contingent
upon satisfactory progress. Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Atmospheric
and Oceanic Sciences or a related field, effective oral and written
communication skills, and strong programming and analytical skills.

Applicants should submit a complete CV, including a list of refereed
publications and contact information for three references. These materials
should be addressed to David Neelin <neelin at atmos.ucla.edu>
<neelin at atmos.ucla.edu> and Gang Chen <gchenpu at atmos.ucla.edu>
<gchenpu at atmos.ucla.edu>. The University of California is an Equal
