Research Associate – Extreme Events and Climate Change

The Center for Urban Waters at the University of Washington (UW) Tacoma
is accepting applications for a full-time, post doctoral research
associate to participate in research on extreme events, regional climate
change, and climate impacts assessment. The position is part of a team
at the University of Washington Climate Impacts Group analyzing the time
for emergence of significant climate change in the Pacific Northwest
(PNW). Specific project tasks include:

• Assemble scenarios of projected future climate and hydrologic
conditions for the PNW domain as required for analysis.

• Work with stakeholders to develop important climate change parameters
(e.g., variables related to meteorology, hydrology, extremes, renewable
energy)

• Design, develop, and implement an analytic framework for translating
model uncertainties into probability estimates of the time to emergence
of a climate change signal for a variety of parameters

• Collaborate with other staff on data delivery and stakeholder support.

Applications include effects of climate change on air quality and
assessment of impacts of climate change in the State of Washington.
Position is funded through the UW Puget Sound Institute at UW Tacoma and
will be based in JISAO/College of the Environment at UW Seattle. Initial
appointment is for 12 months with the possibility of extension; contact
Prof. Eric Salathé <salathe@washington.edu
<mailto:salathe@washington.edu>> for more information.

Required qualifications: Ph.D. earned within the last four years in
Atmospheric Sciences, Oceanography, Civil Engineering, or related
discipline demonstrated experience with climate system modeling and/or
climate model analysis, and programming skills to include for data
analysis/visualization in a Linux environment (e.g. Matlab, idl, c,
fortran).

Desired Qualifications: Familiarity with western US regional climate
change including climate dynamics and hydrologic processes. Knowledge of
western US climate-related resource management issues and stakeholders.
Web publishing/online data delivery & visualization.

Applicants should supply a statement of relevant experience, curriculum
vitae, contact information for three references, and earliest potential
start date to Dr. Eric Salathé at salathe@washington.edu
