Postdoctoral position in large-scale dynamics of the atmosphere

Department of the Geophysical Sciences, University of Chicago, invites applications for a postdoctoral position in large-scale dynamics of the atmosphere.  The postdoctoral scholar will conduct research in advancing fundamental understanding of atmospheric processes that affect extratropical weather and climate.  Potential research topics include, but are not limited to, the role of nonadiabatic processes in synoptic-scale eddy-mean flow interaction; dynamics of large-wave events such as sudden stratospheric warming and blocking; the extratropical air-sea interaction and climate variability. 

We seek candidates with a Ph.D. in atmospheric science or a related field.  We strive to mesh theory-driven inquiries with data analysis and modeling and as such give preferences to candidates with a demonstrated strength in fluid dynamics of rotating and stratified flows, statistical mechanics, familiarity with climate datasets (e.g. reanalysis and/or satellite products) and an experience in running a general circulation model.  The position is NSF-funded and available up to two years, contingent on satisfactory progress.

Inquiries and application materials concerning this position should be directed to Prof. Noboru Nakamura (  The application should include (1) curriculum vitae, (2) statement of research interest, (3) the names and contact information for three references.  Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.

The University of Chicago is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity/Disabled/Veterans Employer.  All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, age, protected veteran status or status as an individual with disability.
