Applications are invited for a tenure-track faculty position at the
Assistant Professor level in the Department of Earth and Ocean
Sciences at The University of British Columbia.

The candidate should have expertise in atmospheric synoptic/mesoscale
dynamics and/or data assimilation, a Ph.D. and preferably
post-doctoral experience, and a record of research towards
understanding the dynamics of synoptic and mesoscale circulations
through both observations and models. Examples of areas of interest
include (but are not limited to): atmospheric variability in
observations and models; coupling/interaction between dynamics and
physics; atmospheric predictability; analysis of synoptic systems; and
synoptic/dynamic downscaling. The successful candidate will be
expected to effectively teach synoptic and other meteorology in
undergraduate and graduate courses in programs offered by the
Department of Earth and Ocean Sciences.

Applications should include a cover letter and CV, a statement of
research interests, experience and impact, and a statement of teaching
philosophy and evidence of teaching effectiveness, if
available. Applicants should also provide contact information for
three or more people willing to serve as references.  Referees will be
