The Guy Carpenter Asia-Pacific Climate Impact Centre of the School of
Energy and Environment at City University of Hong Kong
(<http://www.cityu.edu.hk/gcacic/>) is recruiting at least one
post-doctoral fellow to work on regional climate modeling. The Centre
has been running the Regional Climate Model Version 3 (RegCM3) in
simulating rainfall in South China and typhoon activity in the western
North Pacific with good results. The post-doctoral fellow will continue
with this work in (1) developing a real-time seasonal forecast of
landfalling typhoon activity in East Asia, (2) extending the RegCM3 in
the seasonal prediction of rainfall in South China, and (3) using the
RegCM3 to study the past, current and future climate of South China and
other regions in the Asia-Pacific region. Other related studies will
also be encouraged.

The applicant should be a recent PhD in atmospheric science with
demonstrated modeling experience through publications. The initial
appointment will be for six months. Upon satisfactory completion of the
first six months, the contract will be extended to at least another six
months with possibility of further renewal depending on funding and
performance. The salary is around HK$22,000-25,000 (1US$ = approximately
HK$7.76) per month depending on experience. Fringe benefits include
leave, medical and dental consultations at the campus clinic.

Interested applicants should send an email to <gcacic@cityu.edu.hk> with a
CV and a cover letter describing previous modeling experience.

City University of Hong Kong is an equal opportunity employer and we are
committed to the principle of diversity. We encourage applications from
all qualified candidates, especially those who will enhance the
diversity of our staff.
