Forwarded from CLIMLIST... Postdoctoral Research Associate in Climate Dynamics and Variability, Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). Description: We are seeking qualified postdoctoral candidates to pursue Department of Energy (DOE) funded projects. The first project is aimed at examining and understanding the role of aerosols and air-sea interactions in tropical climate variability using Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) program data over the western Pacific warm pool region, satellite observations and global climate model simulations. The goal of the second project is to explore and quantify the benefits of high-resolution global climate modeling by conducting and analyzing a suite of high and low-resolution atmospheric-only and fully coupled simulations. The selected candidate will work closely with a diverse team of climate and computational scientists at ORNL, Texas A&M University-College Station and other DOE Labs. Interested applicants should submit a CV with a list of publications, a cover letter describing research interests and the names of three references to Salil Mahajan email@example.com<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>. Review of applicants will begin immediately and would continue until the position is filled. The candidate will be expected to publish accomplished research in peer-reviewed journals and present at relevant conferences. Qualifications: Applicants must possess a Ph.D. degree in atmospheric sciences, oceanography, hydrology or other relevant fields. Demonstrated experience in designing, executing and analyzing experiments with either coupled global or regional climate models or their components, with the aim to answer outstanding climate science questions is essential. Previous experience with analyzing ARM facility data (or other ground-based data) and satellite observations is desirable. The successful candidate would be expected to have an advanced knowledge of general circulation theory and climate dynamics, particularly air-sea coupled interactions. Familiarity with aerosol processes, aerosol-cloud interactions and their representation in climate models is also desirable. Knowledge of statistics of climate extremes and statistical methods used in climate sciences is preferred but not required. Applicants cannot have received the most recent degree more than five years prior to the date of application and must complete all degree requirements before starting their appointment. Certain exceptions may be considered. This position is a temporary, full-time assignment for 24 months.
