Forwarded from CLIMLIST... CIRES/ Western Water Assessment Research Associate The Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) at the University of Colorado Boulder and the Western Water Assessment (WWA) Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments Program (RISA) invites applications for a Research Associate (Postdoctoral researcher) to lead an effort to translate climate science into conservation decision-making and to evaluate use of climate information by land managers. This position is part of a project entitled "Building Climate Science into Land and Water Conservation Planning and Decision-Making in the American Southwest," a collaborative effort with the Climate Assessment for the Southwest (CLIMAS) RISA at the University of Arizona, and The Nature Conservancy. The successful applicant will analyze general circulation model (GCM) and downscaled output in order to help apply relevant climate projection information to habitat and species conservation planning. Experience accessing, manipulating, and analyzing GCM output is required, along with at least some familiarity with downscaling methodologies. The successful applicant will be located at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration/Physical Sciences Division (NOAA/PSD) in the David Skaggs Research Center in Boulder, and will therefore be required to obtain a NOAA clearance at the outset of the appointment. Desired start date for this position is September 2012. Two years of funding are available for this position. Additional Posting Description Required Education/Experience/Skills (Minimum Qualifications) --A recent Ph.D. in climate science, atmospheric science, meteorology, hydrology, or a related field. Proof of degree will be required at time of hire. --Experience analyzing, manipulating and applying GCM output --Interest in applying climate science and climate projections to conservation and natural resource management Desired Qualifications --Understanding of terrestrial processes and land-climate feedbacks --Familiarity with downscaling methods including statistical methods and the use of regional climate models --Experience working with NGOs, government agencies and/or others involved in natural resource management and species conservation --Willingness to travel throughout the Southwest --Ability to speak to diverse non-academic audiences about complex topics Questions may be directed to: William R.
