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: firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
