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

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
