The Cooperative Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Studies (CIMAS) and
University of Miami invites applications for a Postdoctoral Associate
position in Ocean and Atmosphere Modeling.

Goal: Develop and test a new paradigm linking extratropical atmospheric
circulations to the initiation and evolution of El Niño/Southern
Oscillation events.

Project description: We are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral
research associate with a strong background in the numerical modeling of
large-scale ocean and atmosphere circulations to join an NSF-funded,
multi-institution research team investigating the initiation and
evolution of El Nino/Southern Oscillation (ENSO) events. In particular,
the postdoctoral researcher will be responsible for designing,
conducting, and analyzing controlled numerical model experiments to test
a number of research hypotheses focused on the efficacy of extratropical
atmospheric forcing of ENSO events. This research will improve our
understanding of sources and limitations of ENSO predictability, and
lead to improved predictions of developing ENSO events. The successful
candidate will also have access to numerous career preparation
activities including collaboration with researchers in both academic and
cooperative (academic-federal) institutions, funding to attend national
and international conferences, and access to professional development
seminars and workshops for early-career researchers.

Qualifications: Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Physical Oceanography,
Atmospheric Science or a related field and a demonstrated
ability/interest in publishing results in the peer-reviewed literature.
Highly desirable qualifications include the ability to run ocean and
global coupled climate models. Prior experience with a commonly used
global coupled climate model, such as GFDL’s coupled climate model or
NCAR’s community earth system model, is also desirable but not required.
Knowledge of Unix, Fortran, and/or C+, along with good oral and written
communications skills, is also sought.

Applicants must apply online at <> (Position
#P100019270). The application should include a curriculum vitae, a cover
letter stating research interests, experience and the contact
information for three professional references. The selection processes
will begin on December 15, 2016 and the position will remain open until
filled. The starting date of the position is expected to be in March
2017, but is negotiable. The appointment will initially be for one year,
renewable for a second year depending on performance. Salary will be
commensurate with experience. Applicants may direct questions about the
position to Dr. Renellys C. Perez at <>, Prof.
Bruce T. Anderson at <>, or Prof. Benjamin Giese
