Research areas include weather analysis and forecasting, specifically on extratropical cyclones and effects of mountainous terrain on precipitating cloud systems. Required experience are skill in west-coast weather analysis and forecasting, measurements with active and passive microwave remote sensing instruments, and publications in synoptic and mesoscale meteorology. Candidates with experience in field program leadership and application of specialized ground, aircraft and satellite remote sensing measurements to precipitating cloud systems are desired.

The University of Washington (UW) is located in the greater Seattle metropolitan area, with a dynamic, multicultural community of 3.7 million people and a range of ecosystems from mountains to ocean.

While the successful candidate will primarily be engaged in research, all University of Washington faculty engage in teaching, research and service. This is a non-tenure-track, multiyear, permanent position that is contingent upon available funding. A PhD, or foreign equivalent, in Atmospheric Sciences or a related field, and a record of ten or more years of research experience are required at the time of appointment.
