UCAR Visiting Scientist Programs is seeking an outstanding postdoctoral research scientist to engage in research on understanding climate variations in the Intra-Americas Seas (IAS) and their influence on climate extremes using global high-resolution coupled models. The research activities fall under the broad banner of climate variability, predictability and attribution. This is a new, full-time, two-year appointment, renewable for a third year. This position is located at the Climate Change, Variability Prediction Group at the NOAA Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Labotatory, Princeton, New Jersey.
The overall goals of the project are to:
The selected candidate will analyze high-resolution coupled climate simulations (including comparison to observed data), design and execute perturbation experiments with high-resolution climate models, and assess initialized predictions with high-resolution climate models.
This candidate will be expected to document results in scientific publications, present results in seminars and at conferences, and pursue outside activities that advance professional growth, which may include contributing to educational programs, serving on committees and attending workshops.
preference will be given to candidates who possess the following:
This is a new, full time two-year term position with the possibility of extension. THIS POSITION IS LOCATED IN PRINCETON, NEW JERSEY. Qualified applicants should have a Ph.D. degree in atmospheric sciences, oceanography or a closely related field.
