Position Announcement

Spatial modeling postdoctoral position at NCAR
National Center for Atmospheric Research
Boulder, Colorado, USA

Application deadline: May 16, 2015

The Integrated Assessment Modeling (IAM) group at the National Center
for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, Colorado, seeks a
postdoctoral researcher in spatial modeling to interact with land use
modelers, economic modelers and demographers to carry out
interdisciplinary research on future spatial development of population
and urban areas and its interaction with climate change. Key functions
in this position are to (1) develop and apply models of spatial
population, urban areas, and land use to address questions related to
spatial development and climate change impacts at regional, national,
and global scales; (2) analyze and employ spatial demographic and land
use data to develop, validate, and apply spatial models; and (3) work
with land surface modelers employing the Community Land Model (CLM) to
analyze CLM simulations of urban climate outcomes for use in impact

The successful applicant will join an interdisciplinary research group
that includes both social and natural scientists working on the climate
change issue (see <>). The
group has an organizational home within the Climate and Global Dynamics
Laboratory (CGD) which carries out research on climate and land cover
change. The group develops and applies new socio-economic models, and
linkages to climate models, that leverage NCAR’s status as a
world-leading climate modeling center.

The position requires expertise in spatial data and modeling;
familiarity with remote sensing data relevant to the measurement of
urban areas and land use; familiarity with spatial demographic data and
demographic models and concepts; and proficiency in scientific
programming in languages such as Python or R, and proficiency in
geographic information systems.

This is a full-time two-year term position. For a detailed job
description and instructions on how to apply, see <>.
