Wanted: Postdoctoral Position on Global Climate Change at the Center For Ocean-Land-Atmosphere Studies in Calverton, Maryland

Job Description
The Center for Ocean-Land-Atmosphere Studies is looking for a self-motivated postdoctoral research scientist in the area of global climate change. The incumbent will join a multi-institutional project for climate change experiments using an advanced multi-scale model of climate system, SP-ESM (Super Parameterized Earth System Model). The selected candidate will investigate the effect of increased greenhouse concentrations on the Earth’s climate system with the aim of understanding the mechanisms responsible for the projected climate changes. Particular attention will be given to dynamical and cloud-radiative processes, extreme events, and coupled ocean-atmosphere feedback mechanisms in future climate scenarios. The successful candidate is also expected to take a leadership role in preparation of manuscripts for publication and conference participation.

Applicants must have a Ph.D. in atmospheric sciences or a related field, with experience in climate variability or climate change.

The appointment will be for one year, with renewal for a second year, given satisfactory performance. For consideration, interested and qualified applicants should submit a cover letter including a statement of research interests, a curriculum vita, and contact information of two professional references to the COLA PostDoc Search Committee (Dr. Cristiana Stan, chairperson; stan@cola.iges.org).

Applications received before 15 December 2012 will receive highest priority.
