Climate Science

One of the biggest challenges of the 21st century is to train scientists who will develop a better understanding of the dynamical behavior of the Earth system. USC's department of Earth Sciences hosts a diverse group of scientists reconstructing and modeling past climate variability, studying the behavior of carbon within ocean and terrestrial systems, and deciphering clues to Earth's climate system in deep time.

We are now in the process of expanding our climate program with additional faculty in the area of climate system modeling. Candidates will find a rich and dynamic environment with many possibilities for collaborations aimed at understanding fundamental aspects of climate variability.
