The University of Washington (UW) seeks to expand its current expertise in regional climate modeling, with an emphasis on processes studies related to climate variability and climate change. In pursuit of this goal, the Department of Atmospheric Sciences invites applications for a full-time, 9-month (100% FTE), multi-year faculty position that may be filled as Assistant Professor (0116) or Associate Professor (0102), or as Associate Professor Tenure Track (0109) to begin Autumn 2016.

We anticipate the successful candidate’s research will focus on earth system processes on a regional scale that advances our understanding of climate variability and climate change. The method of study should include traditional and novel methods for analyses of modeling, observations and theory. Examples of areas of emphasis could include, but are not limited to land-atmosphere interaction, including drought, extreme events, and impacts on agriculture; seasonal to interannual climate predictability, including impacts on terrestrial and marine ecosystems; and climate-ecology interaction, including fire and its implications. All regions are potentially of interest, including the western US. The appointment will be in the Department of Atmospheric Sciences and the candidate will be expected to help shape and take a leading role in the emerging Regional Climate Center at the University of Washington.

The Department of Atmospheric Sciences resides in the College of the Environment, which fosters collaborations between the faculty, staff, and students engaged in the study of environmental sciences, engineering, and the human dimensions of environmental challenges.
