The Department of Geosciences at the University of Arizona is seeking a full-time postdoctoral researcher with research interests in large-scale atmospheric dynamics in past, present, and future climates. Initial appointment is for 12-months, with the possibility of extension for a second year (subject to funding). Salary commensurate with experience. The work will be supervised by Dr. Marcus Lofverstrom. Job will begin during Fall semester 2019.

Position summary:
The successful candidate will use the CMIP5/6 archives, the NCAR Large Ensemble, or related datasets to study factors that drive and modulate extreme precipitation events in mid- and high latitudes. In addition, the selected candidate will conduct original research, write manuscripts for publication, actively participate in professional meetings, and collaborate with faculty and graduate students at the University of Arizona.

Skills and abilities:
Excellent written and verbal communication skills, strong programming abilities (e.g., Python and/or Matlab), and experience working with large gridded datasets are desired.

Qualifications:
The successful applicant must hold a Ph.D. degree (or foreign equivalent) in meteorology, oceanography, climate science, or a related field when starting the job. To hold a position as a postdoctoral researcher an employee must be within 5 years of receiving their Ph.D. degree.
