Forwarded from CLIMLIST... Postdoctoral Researcher in Climate-Ice Sheet Modeling The Climate and Global Dynamics Division (CGD) with the NCAR Earth System Laboratory (NESL) at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, Colorado, seeks an individual to conduct collaborative and independent research as a member of a project team modeling the long-term changes in climate, ice sheets, and sea level using the Community Earth System Model with the Community Ice Sheet Model (CESM-CISM). Simulations will include both past and future scenarios. The position will combine scientific research with the coordination and support of the CESM-CISM simulation activities. This position participates and contributes to the CESM-CISM modeling activities, specifically critically evaluating the simulations for the Last Interglacial and Pliocene against reconstructions for the climate, sea level, and the Greenland ice sheet, independently and in collaboration with others, and using these simulations in conjunction with long-term future CESM-CISM simulations to understand possibilities for the future. The incumbent will interact with the greater CESM and university communities, providing expertise on ice dynamics and the capabilities of CESM-CISM for paleoclimate problems, and will be involved in suggesting improvements to CISM and the other component models for successful prediction of the Greenland ice sheet within CESM. The position includes the design and execution of experiments, the scientific analysis of results, further development of tools too assess the results, and the publication of papers. Requirements include: (1) a Ph.D. or equivalent in oceanic, atmospheric, or related earth sciences within the last 5 years; (2) understanding, through published or academic work, of modeling complex, geophysical processes and a thorough knowledge of the physical and mathematical basis of ice sheet models; (3) extensive experience with ice sheet models and detailed knowledge of data analysis methodologies for climate and ice sheet models; and (4) a record of publication in scientific peer-reviewed journals. A detailed job description can be viewed at <https://ucarcareers.silkroad.com/>. Initial consideration will be given to applications received prior to 10/24/2014. Thereafter, applications will be reviewed on an as-needed basis. Apply online (reference tracking code #14178). We value diversity. AA/EOE
