The California Institute of Technology (CalTech) Postdoctoral Scholars Program 
at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) invites applicants for a postdoctoral 
research position in the area of regional cliamte model (RCM) evaluation.  The 
successful applicants will join a research team at JPL/CalTech focused on the 
use of satelite and other observations to evaluate and improve RCMs.  Immediate 
emphasis is on the continued development and application of our Regional 
Climate Model Evaluation System (RCMES).  Specific applications include the 
U.S. National Climate Assessment and the Coordinated Regional Downscaling 
Experiment (CORDEX), including CORDEX-Africa, CORDEX-Arctic and CORDEX-N. 
America, also referred to as the North American Regional Climate Change 
Assessment Program (NARCCAP).
 
Applicants should have a recent Ph.D. in atmospheric or ocean sciences, or a 
closely related field.  They should have a strong background in atmosphere or 
ocean modeling and/or data analysis. Experience with regional climate modeling 
and with the application of satellite data products to model evaluation is 
desirable.  Expertise in areas such as the hydrological cycle, weather extremes 
and climate variability are also desirable.  The appointments are contingent 
upon completion of the Ph.D.
 
The annual starting salary for a recent Ph.D. is approximately $52,000 and can 
vary according to qualification.  Postdoctoral scholars positions are awarded 
initially for a one-year period.  Appointments may be renewed in one-year 
increments for a maximum of two additional years.
 
Interested candidates should send their curriculum vitae, a brief (<= 1 page) 
statement of research interests, and a list of three references to: Duane 
Waliser, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, MS 180-400 4800 Oak Grove Dr., Pasadena, CA 
91109; +1-818-393-4094; 
e-mail: duane.waliser@jpl.nasa.gov.
 
The California Institute of Technology and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory are 
Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employers.  Women, minorities, veterans, 
and disabled persons are encouraged to apply.
