Postdoctoral Associate in Modeling of the Climate Response to Volcanic
Eruptions. The Department of Environmental Sciences of Rutgers
University invites applicants for the position of Postdoctoral
Associate. This is a grant-funded, non-tenure-earning position carrying
full benefits. The successful candidate will join a research group
investigating the impacts on climate on seasonal and decadal scales
following volcanic eruptions as a function of size, location, and timing
of the eruptions, and the current climate state, including phase of QBO,
ENSO, and AMO. The successful candidate will have primary
responsibility, in collaboration with other researchers at Rutgers and
NCAR, for conducting general circulation model simulations, and
analyzing the output from previous simulations that included forcing
from volcanic eruptions. Candidates must have a Ph.D. and a demonstrated
background in climate modeling. Experience using CESM or WACCM, and with
the NCAR computing environment, the analysis of computer simulations of
climate change, aerosol interactions with climate, atmospheric and
oceanic variability on seasonal to decadal scales, and the effects of
volcanic eruptions on climate are highly desirable. To apply please send
a resume, a statement of research interests, and the names of three
references (all combined into one pdf file) by email to:
