California, Santa Barbara. The successful candidate will participate in
a research project in the Climate Variations and Changes (CLIVAC)
research group with Dr. Charles Jones (<http://clivac.eri.ucsb.edu>).
The main goal of this project is to advance our understanding of the

Applicants need to have a Ph.D. in atmospheric sciences, or a closely
related field, prior to the date of hire. Previous experience with the
WRF model and/or global models (CAM, CCSM) is highly desirable.
Candidates need to have strong experience with Linux environment and

also have strong written and oral communication skills.

The position is full time and offers a competitive salary and benefits.
The initial appointment is for one year beginning as soon as March 17,
2014; continuation beyond one year will be based on performance and
availability of funding. The primary consideration date for this
position is February 27, 2014; thereafter open until filled.
