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.
