About Us

For a sense of the kinds of work we do, I invite you to take a look at these videos we made about our field projects in Chile and in Hawaii.  Some are silly, some are serious.  They will give you a little bit of a feeling for some of the climate science work we do:

We are always looking for talented graduate students at the M.S. and Ph.D. level and for postdoctoral scientists interested in the kind of interdisciplinary research we do here. Successful applicants will have strong quantitative and computational experience and a keen interest in linking theoretical approaches with field studies.

Positions Open

Several fully funded positions for graduate students are available in the area of water vapor, clouds, and climate. Research topics include analysis of water vapor isotopic composition in the subtropics as part of the EUREC4A project in Barbados, using water vapor isotopic ratios to better understand convective aggregation, and the use of water vapor isotopic ratios to better constrain mixing between the marine boundary layer and the free troposphere.  Significant opportunities for field work and for training in climate modeling are available. Interested students are welcome to contact Dr. Joseph Galewsky for further details.
