Postdoctoral position on tropical rain belts, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory 
of Columbia University

The Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University invites 
applications for a Postdoctoral Research Scientist position on the subject of 
tropical rain belts. The successful candidate will work on a NSF funded project 
to evaluate, use and further develop the TRACMIP climate model ensemble to 
elucidate the dynamics of tropical rain belts, their seasonal evolution and 
their response to climate change. TRACMIP aims to bring into clear definition 
the essential similarities and differences in the oceanic ITCZ and the land 
monsoons through a hierarchy of idealized model setups and to identify 
mechanisms that are robust across a range of simplifications.

The position will be located at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory in 
Palisades, NY in the research group of Professor Michela Biasutti and will be 
in collaboration with Dr. Aiko Voigt from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, 
Germany, and Prof. Jack Scheff from University of North Carolina in Charlotte.

The successful candidate will have a PhD in atmospheric or climate science. A 
background in tropical dynamics and experience in analyzing large multi-model 
datasets are a plus. Excellent skills in scientific writing in English, a 
strong motivation and ability to carry out research independently as well as in 
a team, and the ability to effectively communicate the results within the 
project and to outside colleagues through publications and conference 
presentations are preferred. 

The appointment is anticipated for spring 2018 and will be for 1 year, with 
continuation   pending on funding and progress. Postdocs are limited to a total 
of five years of combined experience, with no more than three years with 
Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory.

Search will remain open for at least 30 days after the ad appears and will 
continue until the position is filled. 

Please visit our online application site at
for further information about this position and to submit your application, a 
curriculum vitae, a statement of research interests, and names and email 
addresses of three referees.
