[Met-jobs] Postdoctoral Scholar Position in Atmosphere Dynamics (Caltech/Brown)

Postdoctoral Scholar Position in Atmosphere Dynamics

A postdoctoral research position in atmosphere dynamics is available
jointly between the California Institute of Technology and Brown
University. The research involves the development of new approaches to
computing climate statistics directly, rather than through aggregation
of simulated weather, as is currently done in climate models. The
research draws on concepts from theoretical physics and atmospheric
dynamics. Its long-term goal is the development of a new generation of
atmosphere models that provide climate statistics directly and that
are more efficient than current models in the simulation of deep-time
climate and in providing insight into climatic phenomena.

The position is for two years, contingent on progress in the first year and the
availability of funds. Part of the time is expected to be spent at the
California Institute of Technology, part at Brown University. The
postdoctoral researcher will be jointly advised by Tapio Schneider
(Caltech) and Brad Marston (Brown). Candidates should have a recent
PhD in the atmospheric or oceanic sciences, fluid dynamics, physics,
or a related field. Experience with numerical models of fluid flows is
desirable. Salary will be commensurate with experience.

Applications will be reviewed until the position is filled. Please
forward a curriculum vitae, a short statement of research interests,
and the names and email addresses of three referees to Nora Oshima
(nora@gps.caltech.edu).

The California Institute of Technology and Brown University are
Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employers and encourage
applications from women, minorities, veterans, and disabled persons.
