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.

Required:
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 (<matt.newman@noaa.gov>) and
Michael Alexander (<michael.alexander@noaa.gov>)
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>
<www.jobsatcu.com/applicants/Central?quickFind=64109>
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
<jobs@cires.colorado.edu> which cites your name & this job (812846). We
