Two Post-Doctoral Positions for MJO Modeling Research/University of Miami
 
The Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science (RSMAS) at the 
University of Miami invites applications for two post-doctoral positions in the 
Division of Meteorology and Physical Oceanography. We are seeking highly 
motivated postdoctoral research associates with strong backgrounds in numerical 
modeling and physics of tropical convective systems. Successful candidates are 
expected to join a research team consisting of scientists from mulitple 
institutes to conduct research using field observations to evaluate and improve 
simulations of cloud systems related to the Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO) by 
cloud-permitting models of global, regional and local domains. One postdoctoral 
associate will be located at the National Center for Atmospheric Research 
(NCAR) and work closely with NCAR scientists on modeling using the MPAS (Model 
for Prediction Across Scales).  Another will work closely with scientists from 
University of Miami, Harvard, and NASA Goddard on modeling using 
cloud-permitting GEOS-5 and SAM. Both are expected to participate in 
model-observation comparisons and model improvement. Interested applicants 
should submit a cover letter stating research interest, curriculum vitae, and a 
list of names and addresses (including email addresses) of three professional 
references. Applications will be reviewed as received and the positions kept 
open until filled. The starting date of the position is expected to be in fall 
2012 but is negotiable. The appointment will be initially one year, renewable 
up to three years. Salary will commensurate with experience. Applications or 
requests for more information should be directed to: Prof. Chidong Zhang, 
Division of Meteorology and Physical Oceanography, Rosenstiel School of Marine 
and Atmospheric Science, University of Miami, 4600 Rickenbacker Causeway, 
Miami, FL 33149-1098 (Tel 305-421-4042, Fax 305-421-4696, Email 
czhang@rsmas.miami.edu).
 
University of Miami is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
