[Met-jobs] Postdoctoral Fellowship at New York University (USA)

Forwarded from CLIMLIST...

A three year postdoctoral fellowship in Antarctic and Southern Ocean
regional climate modeling is available from the Center for Atmosphere
Ocean Science (CAOS), situated within the Courant Institute of
Mathematical Sciences at New York University (NYU).  The goal of the
project is to understand mechanisms of interactive coupling between the
atmosphere, ocean, and sea ice on the mesoscale, and how these mechanism
respond to, and potentially feedback upon, large scale climate forcings.
   The project is supported under the “Decadal and Regional Climate
Prediction using Earth System Models (EaSM)” initiative within NSF.

A primary duty of the fellow will be to couple regional component models
of the atmosphere (WRF, <>), ocean (ROMS,
<>), and sea ice (CICE,
<>). The research will involve applying
reanalyses and large-scale climate model output to the regional model. A
PhD in the atmospheric, oceanic, or related sciences is required.
Experience in coupled climate modeling, or in the regional modeling of
either the atmosphere, ocean, or sea ice is also necessary. Familiarity
with high-performance computing is also desirable. The position is
available as part of a recently funded NSF collaborative effort between
NYU and Ohio State University (OSU) and Old Dominion University (ODU).
The fellow would be situated at NYU but visit and collaborate with
researchers at OSU and ODU.  A competitive salary is offered. The
tentative start date is July 1, 2011, but is flexible.  For further
information please contact David Holland (
