[Met-jobs] Postdoctoral opportunity: North American Paleohydroclimatology

From "Anchukaitis, Kevin J - (kanchukaitis)" <kanchukaitis@email.arizona.edu>
To "met-jobs@lists.reading.ac.uk" <met-jobs@lists.reading.ac.uk>
Date Wed, 3 Oct 2018 14:45:41 +0000

Postdoctoral Scholar in North American Paleohydroclimatology
Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research
University of Arizona

We have a new position for a Postdoctoral Research Scientist in the area of 
Common Era paleohydroclimatology. The postdoctoral researcher will work on an 
NSF-funded project integrating high-resolution paleoclimate data with climate 
model simulations of past mountain snowpack variability and related climate 
fields in North America. Possible projects could include but are not limited 
to: climate field reconstructions; proxy-model integration and comparison; 
paleoclimate modeling; data assimilation. 

We seek a dynamic early career scientist with background and experience in one 
or more of the following areas: Holocene paleoclimatology, dendroclimatology, 
dendrohydrology, climate modeling, climate dynamics, applied mathematics or 
statistics, paleoclimate data assimilation. Potential starting dates are 
between January 2019 and July 2019, and candidates should have their Ph.D. in a 
relevant discipline by the start of the position. Programming experience 
(Python, MATLAB, R, or similar) is required. Prior experience using large 
spatiotemporal datasets — including those from climate model simulations — is 
recommended. Some prior experience developing new proxy data is desirable but 
is not required. The postdoctoral scientist is expected to be an active and 
engaged member of the Past Landscapes Lab 
(http://www.u.arizona.edu/~kanchukaitis).

The postdoctoral research scientist will be based at the Laboratory of 
Tree-Ring Research at the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona and will be 
supervised by Dr. Kevin Anchukaitis (University of Arizona) and Dr. Bethany 
Coulthard (University of Nevada Las Vegas). The postdoctoral research scientist 
will join a strong and diverse cross-campus research community with interests 
in climate, paleoclimate, and global environmental change. The initial 
appointment will be for up to 24 months, with the possibility of further 
continuation contingent on performance and funding availability. 

Please contact Kevin Anchukaitis (kanchukaitis@email.arizona.edu) with 
expressions of interest or for further information. The official job posting 
and online application is available from UA Careers: 
https://uacareers.com/postings/31459.  Women, minorities, veterans, individuals 
with disabilities, and individuals from other underrepresented groups in the 
earth and environmental sciences are encouraged to apply. The Past Landscapes 
Lab supports Inclusive Excellence, the University of Arizona strategic 
initiative designed to engage every member of the university community in 
diversity and inclusiveness. 

Review of applications will begin on November 1st, 2018, and continue until the 
position is filled
