[Met-jobs] CIRES/PSD Research Associate

From Matt Newman <>
Date Tue, 05 Apr 2011 10:52:44 -0600

The Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) at the 
University of Colorado@Boulder invites applications for a Research Associate, 
Postdoctoral, to study atmosphere-ocean interaction in the Kuroshio-Oyashio 
extension (KOE) region. The project entails using observations and model 
experiments to better understand decadal changes in the KOE and their impact on 
the large-scale atmospheric circulation and its predictability. The successful 
applicant will design, conduct and analyze high-resolution atmospheric general 
circulation model (GCM) simulations to diagnose the response to sea surface 
temperature (SST) anomalies in the KOE region. The postdoc will also be 
involved in all aspects of this research as part of a team of atmospheric 
scientists and oceanographers, including Matt Newman and Michael Alexander 
(NOAA/ESRL/Physical Sciences Divison and CIRES/University of Colorado), 
Young-Oh Kwon (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, WHOI) and Claude Frankignoul 
(Université Pierre et Marie Curie and WHOI) and may spend some time at WHOI 
investigating the causes of oceanographic variability in the KOE. Experience 
with numerical models, including having conducted atmosphere, ocean or coupled 
GCM and/or mesoscale model simulations and the analysis of atmosphere and/or 
ocean data sets is desirable. The successful applicant will be located at the 
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration /Physical Sciences Division 
(NOAA/PSD) in the David Skaggs Research Center in Boulder, and will therefore 
be required to obtain a NOAA clearance at the outset of the appointment. 
Desired start date for this position is September 1, 2011.

A recent Ph.D. in atmospheric science, oceanography, or a related field. Proof 
of degree will be required at time of hire.
Questions may be directed to: Matt Newman ( and Michael 
Alexander (
The position will be filled as a Research Associate through the University of 
Colorado at Boulder. The University offers an attractive benefits package, 
including 22 vacation days per year.

To apply: Applicants must apply to jobs@CU
Be prepared to: Complete your EEO information; upload cover letter, 
resume/vita, proof of PhD or a letter stating when you will receive your PhD. 
Proof of degree is required upon hire date (Doc 1), a list of three references 
with complete contact information, and a letter of recommendation (Doc 2) If 
you do not have a letter of recommendation, upload a statement that a letter 
will be sent to which cites your name & this job
