Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) at UC San Diego invites applications for the position listed below. We seek a motivated, broad-thinking scientist/educator to establish a vigorous research program and provide intellectual leadership in their field while complementing existing expertise at Scripps and other UCSD departments.

We are committed to academic excellence and diversity within the faculty, staff, and student body. The department is interested in candidates who have demonstrated a commitment to inclusive excellence by providing leadership in teaching, mentoring, research, and service towards building an equitable and diverse scholarly environment.
Trace Gases in the Atmosphere: SIO seeks outstanding candidates for a position to be filled at the Assistant level. We seek applicants with interests in quantifying sources and sinks of atmospheric trace gases on global and regional scales as they particularly affect anthropogenic climate change and other large-scale environmental issues. Topics of interest include but are not limited to: inverse modeling of source and sink distributions based on atmospheric observations, innovative methods for measuring greenhouse gases and stratospheric ozone depleting substances in the regional and global atmosphere, and large-scale studies of industrial and biogenic gases based on atmospheric observations. Candidates will be evaluated in part on the basis of their potential to assume leadership of the Scripps component of the international Advanced Global Atmospheric Gases Experiment (AGAGE).
Ph.D., or equivalent degree, in a relevant field is required at the time of application. Strong potential for development of a vigorous, externally funded, and internationally recognized research program and associated scholarly impact, together with excellent teaching, mentoring, and advising within the SIO undergraduate and graduate programs, evidence of service and broader contributions to diversity, leadership activities, and other items that will contribute positively to departmental welfare are preferred.
