[Met-jobs] Faculty position opening (tenure-track Assistant or tenured Associate) in Climate Change and the Hydrological Cycle at UC San Diego’s Scripps Institution of Oceanography


Please find attached a description of this new faculty position at UC San Diego’s Scripps Institution of Oceanography in La Jolla, California (due date 31 January 2019).

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, mesoscale to global-scale atmospheric dynamics, climate dynamics, coupled atmosphere-ocean/hydroclimate variability and predictability, extreme events including atmospheric rivers, climate sensitivity, and cloud physics. 

For many reasons, climate and weather information addressing extreme precipitation and its impacts in the western U.S., is as, or more, important to this region as hurricanes, winter storms or severe weather are to other parts of the continent.

The candidate will have the opportunity to engage deeply with two well-established research programs centered at Scripps Institution of Oceanography that have focused on weather and climate dimensions of western water issues:  

– the Center for Western Weather and Water Extremes (CW3E; cw3e.ucsd.edu), which is funded by federal, state and local sponsors, and is led by F. Martin (Marty) Ralph,

– the California/Nevada Applications Program (CNAP; scripps.ucsd.edu/programs/cnap/), which is funded by NOAA, and whose Scripps lead is Dan Cayan. 

Marty Ralph will attend AGU in DC this week, and the AMS annual meeting in January in Phoenix.  If you would like to meet Marty at AGU or AMS to discuss the position and opportunities to engage with CW3E, please contact Lillian Perry (l2perry@ucsd.edu) to schedule an appointment.  

Also, please feel free to visit the Scripps booth at AGU and the CW3E/Scripps booth at AMS.

Best regards,

Marty Ralph (mralph@ucsd.edu) and Dan Cayan (dcayan@ucsd.edu)
