Postdoctoral Scholar in Tropical Climate Modeling at UC Irvine

Department of Earth System Science

University of California, Irvine, CA

We are looking for a postdoctoral research associate interested in using
earth system simulations to understand how regional atmospheric
circulation and convection over tropical continents are modified by
forest responses to rising atmospheric CO_2 and other global change drivers.

The term of appointment is for one year, and renewable for a second
year, subject to satisfactory progress. Start dates are flexible but we
are eager to hire soon.

A strong foundation in atmospheric science is required, with expertise
in convection, equatorial and orographic dynamics, boundary layer
meteorology, aerosols, or other climate processes. Well-qualified
candidates will have familiarity or interest in the regional
circulations that deliver moisture to Amazon forests, interactions
between the Amazon and the Andes, or other aspects of tropical dynamics.
Computational fluency in atmospheric simulation technology such as the
Community Earth System Model or the Weather Research and Forecasting
models is a necessary skill for this position.

The postdoctoral scholar will be expected to work closely with Profs.
Michael Pritchard and James Randerson within the Department of Earth
System Science. The Earth System Science Department is a highly
interdisciplinary environment with faculty expertise in many components
of the Earth System, including atmospheric physics, land surface
processes, climate dynamics, terrestrial and marine biogeochemical
cycles, ice sheets, and human systems.

Please submit electronically as a single PDF: (1) a brief cover letter,
(2) a curriculum vitae, (3) and the names of three references.
Applications can be sent directly to Mike Pritchard at mspritch@uci.edu
<mailto:mspritch@uci.edu>or jranders@uci.edu <mailto:jranders@uci.edu>.
