dynamics, coupled atmosphere-ocean/hydroclimate variability and
predictability, extreme events including atmospheric rivers, climate
sensitivity, and cloud physics. The successful candidate is expected to
develop a strong extramurally supported research program that complements
existing climate and atmospheric research at SIO and UC San Diego. The
