Postdoctoral Position in Climate Variability and Change in western North 
America, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University

The Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory seeks a Postdoctoral Research Scientist in 
the field of climate variability and change with a special focus on 
hydro-climate in western North America.  The Postdoctoral Scientist will join 
an interdisciplinary team of researchers in the analyses of changes in weather 
and climate over past centuries and the near term future across western North 
America with a focus on how these changes impact the management of water 
resources, land and ecosystems.  The work will analyze observational data, 
proxy reconstructions, re-analyses and climate model simulations to 
characterize how changes in weather variability (e.g. floods and extreme 
events) and hydro-climate (e.g. droughts) will change in coming years to 
decades as a consequence of both ongoing natural variability and 
radiatively-forced climate change.  The Postdoctoral Scientist will be expected 
to work closely with colleagues at Lamont and to also travel frequently to 
western North America to work on the applications aspects of the project with 
collaborators and stakeholders there.  

The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. in atmospheric or climate science, 
extensive knowledge of climate and atmospheric dynamics, skill in the 
statistical analyses of large amounts of large data sets and be proficient in a 
wide suite of relevant programming and computing skills. 

The position is a full time 1 year appointment with the expectation of 
continuation for a second year, depending on progress and availability of 

Position will remain open for at least 30 days and until the position is filled.
Please visit our online application site at for 
further information about this position and to submit your application.

We accept on line applications only.

Columbia University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer.
