Forwarded from CLIMLIST... The Climate Dynamics <http://climdyn.usc.edu/> group at the University of Southern California <http://www.usc.edu/dept/earth/> (Los Angeles, CA) invites applications for a Post-doc fellowship in mathematical paleoclimatology funded by the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration <http://www.noaa.gov/>. *Work description*: Using process-based models of proxy data, coupled to isotope-enabled climate model, the successful candidate will characterize the proxy fingerprint of natural and forced climate variability, and explore associated uncertainties. The same forward models will be used to construct more realistic benchmarks for paleoclimate reconstruction methodologies. The position is for 2 years, with competitive compensation, and will be based at the University of Southern California in the city of Los Angeles. USC is an equal opportunity employer and especially encourages applications from groups traditionally underrepresented in science. *Academic background and skills require*d: The ideal candidate should hold a Ph.D. in Paleoclimatology, Climate Dynamics or Geology and have extensive knowledge of timeseries analysis and statistics. *Application*: Applications are accepted now until the position is filled. For full consideration, please send a letter of application, a current curriculum vitae with list of publications, and the names and contact information of three references to Julien Emile-Geay (firstname.lastname@example.org <mailto:email@example.com>). [Electronic format only] *Selection and attribution criteria*: Candidate’s curriculum vitae with emphasis on prior experience with similar datasets and methods. Although programming skills (Matlab) are a necessity, emphasis will be placed on scientific independence, creativity and originality. A telephone/skype interview will be required after pre-selection.
