The Cooperative Institute for Mesoscale Meteorological Studies (CIMMS) at the University of Oklahoma is seeking excellent candidates for the prestigious Peter Lamb Postdoctoral Fellowship. CIMMS is a research organization that promotes collaborative research between National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and University of Oklahoma (OU) scientists on problems of mutual interest to improve basic understanding of mesoscale and storm-scale meteorological phenomena to help produce better forecasts and warnings that save lives and property and to understand the societal impacts of such phenomena. Research scientists within CIMMS use observations, analysis and models to improve the understanding and prediction of high-impact weather elements and systems and climate anomalies ranging in size from cloud nuclei to multi-state areas.


Although the position is not project-specific, proposals for the CIMMS Postdoctoral fellowship should address at least one of CIMMS’ research themes: 1) weather radar research and development; 2) storm-scale and mesoscale modeling research and development; 3) forecast improvements research and development; 4) impacts of climate change related to extreme weather events; and 5) societal and socioeconomic impacts of high-impact weather systems. The CIMMS website has more information on projects underway within these research themes as well as contact information for CIMMS scientists working on these themes. It is suggested but not required that those applying contact a CIMMS scientist before writing their research proposal to receive guidance when drafting a proposal.


Terms of appointment are for one (1) year, renewable for a second year subject to satisfactory performance.  An annual salary of $60,000 and a research budget of up to $5,000 per year is included in the award, along with a modest relocation stipend. Successful applicants must have obtained a Ph.D. within the last five years; proof of a Ph.D. is required before assuming the post-doctoral position, but those in the final stages of Ph.D. dissertation completion are encouraged to apply provided a finish date before July 31, 2019 is anticipated.


Applicants are asked to submit electronically: (1) a curriculum vitae; (2) a list of all products (e.g., papers, patents, technology transfers, licensed software, etc.) generated over the course of their career; (3) a cover letter which includes the expected start date and any non-standard resources that might be needed to complete the proposed work; (4) a brief proposal (no more than 4 pages, double-spaced, excluding the list of references and figures) describing the work to be pursued during a 2-year tenure at CIMMS; and (5) a list of three references.  In addition, applicants should request that their referees directly send their reference letters to CIMMS at the email address listed below.


To receive full consideration, applications and supporting material should be received prior to January 30, 2019. All materials should be sent electronically to:
