Postdoctoral Investigator:
Influence of Arctic - Lower-Latitude Interactions on Weather and Climate 

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) invites applications for a 
postdoctoral investigator to study influence of Arctic–lower latitude 
interactions on weather and climate variability with a team of scientists from 
WHOI (Young-Oh Kwon and Claude Frankignoul) and NCAR (Gokhan Danabasoglu and 
Steve Yeager).

The project aims to investigate the tropical and mid-latitude (collectively 
referred to as lower latitudes) oceanic and atmospheric drivers of regional 
Arctic changes as well as the impact of Arctic variability on the Northern 
Hemisphere climate and weather extremes, based on a combination of available 
observations and state-of-the-art climate models. Additionally, the proposed 
work will contribute to a European Union-led international collaboration, the 
Blue-Action Project ( The postdoctoral investigator 
will be primarily responsible for numerical experiments designed to establish 
the influence of Arctic changes on the lower latitudes.

·      Recent Ph.D. degree (or nearly completed) in atmospheric science, 
oceanography, or other relevant discipline.
·      Prior experience in global climate modeling, preferably with the 
Community Earth System Model (CESM), with ability to modify the component 
models to setup the planned simulations
·      Some understanding of Arctic climate and its relationship with lower 
latitude climate and weather
·      Strong written and oral communication skills, as evidenced preferably 
through publications in peer-reviewed scientific literature and presentations 
to a variety of audiences

The position will be located at WHOI in Woods Hole, MA with the expectation of 
extended visits to NCAR to collaborate directly with the NCAR Co-PIs. WHOI has 
a top-rated postdoctoral program 
(<>) that supports a 
dynamic postdoctoral community with formal mentoring and career guidance 
programs. This position is full-time and eligible for benefits. The initial 
appointment will be for one year with a possibility of renewal for another 
year. Renewal of the appointment is conditional on the postdoctoral 
investigator making satisfactory progress during the initial year. Start date 
is flexible, but the successful candidate could begin immediately.

Qualified applicants should submit a cover letter, CV, up to three relevant 
publications, and contact information for at least three professional 
references. Please apply online at
