Two Positions in Climate Change and Upwelling Systems at UCLA and UW The
UCLA Dept. of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences and the University of
Washington School of Oceanography have received a 5-year NSF
Collaborative Research award for assessment of the future evolution of
the four Eastern Boundary Upwelling Systems, including the U.S. West
Coast. This project aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of the
consequences of climate change and its interplay with decadal
variability over the coming decades in coastal upwelling systems. As
described below, UCLA and UW seek two postdoctoral scholars to work on
this project, one based at UCLA and one based at UW.

The postdoctoral scholars will oversee continued development and
application of atmospheric (WRF) and oceanic (ROMS) components,
including physical and biogeochemical aspects (BEC model). Development
activities will concentrate mainly on improvement of the coupled model
and its biogeochemical modules, while applications include analyses of
coastal air-sea interaction, biogeochemical response, and mechanisms of
climate variability and change. The UCLA position will be supervised by
Dr. Lionel Renault and will also involve collaboration with other
faculty and researchers within UCLA (Profs. Alex Hall and Jim
McWilliams) and University of Washington (Prof. Curtis Deutsch and the
other postdoctoral scholar). The UW position will be supervised by Prof.
Curtis Deutsch and will involve collaboration with the UCLA team. The
positions are available for one year, initially, and will be renewable
on an annual basis. They are available immediately, although the start
date is negotiable.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences or a
related field, effective oral and written communication skills, and an
interest in collaborative research. Strong programming skills are also
essential. Experience running regional or global numerical models will
be an advantage, especially WRF, ROMS and/or biogeochemical models.
Applicants should submit a brief statement of research interests and
goals and a complete CV, including contact information for three
references, to Dr. Lionel Renault for the UCLA position or Curtis
Deutsch for the UW position. Applications should be respectively
submitted via email to lrenault at atmos.ucla.edu and cdeutsch at uw.edu
. Consideration of applications will begin immediately.

UCLA and UW are an Equal Opportunity / Affirmative Action employer. All
qualified applicants, including minorities and women, are encouraged to
apply.
