Forwarded from CLIMLIST... Research Associate (Postdoctoral) Department of Geography and Environment, Boston University, USA Goal: Investigate changes in the characteristics of weather and climate extremes over the United States using novel statistical techniques combining observations and numerical climate simulations Project description: The project is funded by the Dep’t. of Energy and focuses on detecting “hot spot” regions—as well as “flare ups” within the hot spot regions— that have experienced climate-induced interannual to multi-decadal scale variations in seasonal-mean precipitation and extreme event occurrences.In order to address this question, we will be applying novel statistical techniques to long-term climate data and climate model simulations in order to determine uniquely whether, and to what extent, precipitation over regions of the continental United States is changing as a result of changes in the underlying climate of the region. Further we will use these techniques to highlight the role of stochastic and deterministic processes in producing these seasonal-mean precipitation variations and extreme event occurrences, with a goal of identifying regions with high potential for making skillful predictions. Qualifications: A PhD in atmospheric, hydrologic, or closely related physical science, or statistics. Desired qualifications include significant experience in statistical analysis of observational and/or numerical modeling data and good oral and written communications skills. Applicants should send the following materials by email (Subject: ‘Detection Postdoc’) to Prof. Bruce T. Anderson at <email@example.com>: (1) a cover letter describing research interests and experience, (2) curriculum vita, and (3) names and contact information for three references. For full consideration, applications must be received by July 15, 2012. The position is open until filled; start date is flexible. Boston University is an Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunity Employer. ------------------------------------------------------ Bruce T. Anderson, Associate Professor Dep't.
