Postdoctoral Research Position Available
(as of Nov. 2013)

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research position in the Climate, Atmospheric Science, Physical Oceanography Division of Scripps Institution of Oceanography. The research will be in the areas of modeling tropical convective systems such as MJO, convection and cloud parameterization, and the interaction of convection, clouds and climate. Applicants with a Ph.D. in atmospheric science or meteorology are encouraged to apply. Preference will be given to candidates with experience in cloud-resolving models (e.g. WRF) or the NCAR CAM5. Salary is commensurate with qualification and experience, and is based on University of California salary scales. Applicants should send a current curriculum vita including a list of publications, statement of research interest, and names of three references to Dr. Guang J.
