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
(julieneg@usc.edu <mailto:julieneg@usc.edu>). [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.
