Forwarded from CLIMLIST... 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 <email@example.com <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>> 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 email@example.com <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>. Consideration of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. No institutional funds are dedicated to the funding of this position. Funding is derived from extramural research awards.
