Prof. Andrew Majda has four interdisciplinary post-doctoral positions available as part of the MURI award, “Physics Constrained Stochastic-Statistical Models for extended Range Environmental Prediction”.The research topics vary widely including:1) new Skeleton and muscle models for the MJO in the tropics and extended range forecasting; 2) new data driven methods to capture intermittency and extreme events in large data sets; 3) new Physics constrained nonlinear regression models and information barriers to prediction; 4) new reduced order models for tropical/extra-tropical interaction and short term climate change.

Interested applicants should have a Ph.D in applied mathematics, physics, or climate atmosphere ocean science.There are opportunities to interact with scientists at NCAR and JPL as well as with other faculty in CAOS at the Courant Institute.The starting salary is $66,764 for twelve months with standard NYU benefits.The positions are for one year at a time but are renewable for up to three years and can begin anytime from December 1, 2012 until June 1, 2013.  This position remain open until suitable candidates are hired.

Interested applicants should send C.V., two reference letters, and a short statement explaining their scientific interest in this project to:
