Postdoctoral Positions in Climate and Atmospheric Dynamics at UCLA


UCLA Dept. of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences seeks postdoctoral scholars in Climate and Atmospheric dynamics, for positions supervised by Prof. David Neelin and Prof. Gang Chen.  One position will be in the area of tropical moist dynamics and involves a combination of observational analysis, running and analyzing climate models and/or stochastic modeling aiming at understanding the moist processes underlying extreme event statistics and constraining or improving their representation in climate models.  Another position will be in the area of large-scale atmospheric dynamics and transport.  The goal of the project is to understand the large-scale atmospheric transport and mixing of moisture and/or trace gases, how the atmospheric circulation may respond to future climate change, and the implications for extreme weather events, using a combination of observations, theory, and/or idealized and comprehensive modeling.  The positions are available immediately.  Each position would initially be for one year, but renewable for up to two years, contingent upon satisfactory progress.  Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences or a related field, effective oral and written communication skills, and strong programming and analytical skills.


Applicants should submit a complete CV, including a list of refereed publications and contact information for three references.  These materials should be addressed to David Neelin <> and Gang Chen <>.  The University of California is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.  All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, age or protected veteran status.  For the complete University of California nondiscrimination and affirmative action policy please follow this link: For more about Prof. Neelin and Prof Chen's research activities, visit and
