Postdoctoral Researcher Position in Climate Diagnostics and/or Modeling

 

A postdoctoral researcher position is available through the Utah Climate Center and the Department of Plants, Soils & ClimateUtah State University. The person will join a research project aimed at producing an improved dynamical downscaling for climate simulations and/or understanding climate cycles of the Western United States, as well as tropical regions around the world.  The position is open immediately until filled.


Responsibilities:

  • Perform numerical simulations with regional climate models such as the Weather Research & Forecasting (WRF) model.
  • Cooperate in current efforts to use various time statistical and dynamical analyses to quantify the magnitude and frequencies of drought and wet episodes.
  • Identify large-scale atmospheric and oceanic features at appropriate spatial and temporal scales that connect with the cyclical variations in wet and dry periods.
