The Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences at the 
Massachusetts Institute of Technology invites applications for a postdoctoral 
research position focusing on rainfall extremes and surface processes. The 
successful candidate will work closely with Drs. Paul O'Gorman, Adam Schlosser, 
and Taylor Perron to study how variability in precipitation patterns associated 
with climate change will affect landslides and erosion.

Experience with statistical analysis or modeling in geomorphology or 
atmospheric science is desirable. The initial appointment will be for one year, 
with the possibility of extension for up to two additional years. The position 
is available immediately, and will remain open until filled.

To apply, send a CV (including a list of publications), a summary of relevant
