Postdoctoral Research Associate in Climate Dynamics and Variability, Oak
Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL).


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<>. 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.


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
