Post-Doctoral Position in Tropical Variability in Models

The Department of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University invites applicants for a postdoctoral fellow position to develop innovative process-oriented diagnostics for climate and weather forecasting models with an emphasis on tropical variability. The position will involve using large-scale atmospheric analyses, satellite observations, and in-situ observations to diagnose the dynamics of tropical intraseasonal oscillations, applying these diagnostics to state-of-the-art climate models developed by NCAR and GFDL, and implementing these diagnostics in a software framework that allows broad dissemination of diagnostics across multiple modeling centers.

Minimum qualifications include a Ph.D in atmospheric sciences or a closely related field, experience with using gridded climate or weather forecasting model output, and experience working with atmospheric observational datasets. Experience in studying the meteorology and climate of the Tropics, in diagnosing weather and climate phenomena on a process level, and in assessing climate or weather forecasting model performance is desirable.

Applications will be accepted until the position is filled; however, to ensure full consideration, applications should be submitted by 11:59 pm, MST, on June 22nd, 2017.
