Postdoctoral Research Associate Position in Earth System Modeling at UGA


  The Climate, Clouds, and Land Modeling Group in the Department of Geography at the University of Georgia in Athens, GA (PI: Dr. Gabriel Kooperman; http://kooperman.uga.edu) is seeking applications for a postdoctoral research associate. The work will focus on simulating extreme storms and precipitation events in the U.S. using state-of-the-art Earth system models. In addition to Dr. Kooperman, the researcher will work closely with three collaborators: Dr. Kevin Reed (Stony Brook University, Stonybrook, NY, https://you.stonybrook.edu/kareed/), Dr. Walter Hannah (Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Livermore, CA, http://hannahlab.org), and Dr. Angie Pendergrass (National Center for Atmospheric Research, Boulder, CO, http://www.cgd.ucar.edu/staff/apgrass/). For additional information or questions, please contact Dr. Kooperman (<kooperman@uga.edu>) and see the detailed position description here: <http://kooperman.uga.edu/postdoc-position.html

Qualifications:
  - The position requires a PhD in atmospheric/climate science or a related field by August 1, 2019.
  - Candidates should have a record of publishing in respected journals and presenting at conferences.
  - Experience conducting experiments with Earth system models and/or a background in statistical analysis of extreme events is desirable, but candidates whose specific experience differs and are interested in learning these skills are also encouraged to apply.

Responsibilities:
  The researcher will be responsible for:
   - designing experiments,
   - running simulations,
   - compiling observational data,
   - analyzing results,
   - writing manuscripts,
   - presenting results, and
   - helping to develop new proposals.

How to apply:
  Interested candidates should send via email a cover letter describing their interest in the position and previous experience, CV, and names and contact information for three references to Dr. Kooperman (kooperman@uga.edu). Review of applications will begin on March 1, 2019 and continue until the position is filled.
