Postdoctoral fellowship on the climate impact of improved
cryosphere-atmosphere-ocean interactions.

NASA Goddard Space Flight Center invites applications for a postdoctoral
fellowship with a primary focus on the climate impact of improved ice
sheet, ocean and atmosphere interactions. The research involves
incorporating state of the art ice sheet models to the coupled
atmosphere-ocean general circulation model, ModelE, and to investigate
the sensitivity and the feedbacks of the atmosphere-ocean-cryosphere
coupled system, along with its impact on the climate, ice sheet and
sea-level evolutions. The time scales considered range from twentieth
century simulations, paleo-climate, and future scenarios and will use
paleo, in situ and satellite observations for evaluation.

The applicant must have a Ph.D. in atmospheric science, oceanic science,
glaciology, physics or related field. Advanced scientific programming
skills are crucial and familiarity with Fortran is a plus.

The work will be conducted at NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies
in New York City, and a competitive salary is offered. The tentative
start date is August 1, 2011 and the initial appointment is for 2 years.
For further information, please contact Sophie Nowicki
(<sophie.nowicki@nasa.gov>) or Gavin Schmidt (<gschmidt@giss.nasa.gov>).
