The Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) in Boulder, Colorado is seeking a post-doctoral or an early career research scientist to work at the NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory (ESRL) in the Physical Sciences Division (PSD). The chosen candidate will examine the predictability of hydroclimate (e.g., temperature, precipitation, soil moisture) at lead times of up to two years for many regions of the globe. Forecasts based on empirical models, machine learning techniques, and initialized physical models will be developed and assessed by the chosen candidate. These forecasts are eventually aimed at providing long-term agricultural outlooks for the Famine Early Warning Systems Network. This is a relatively new area of climate forecasting, so the candidate need not be an expert on all aspects of the problem, but should be willing to learn and to show initiative. The candidate should have excellent technical and communication skills and be comfortable working in a team environment. This position will be in Boulder, Colorado, with an office at ESRL PSD. Requirements: • Ph.D. in a physical science with expertise in Meteorology, Oceanography, Hydrology or related discipline; or Ph.D. in Applied Math, Data Science, or related discipline. • Experience with analyzing large scientific data sets. • Experience developing structured code in commonly used languages. • Fluency in writing and speaking English, and good oral and written communication skills. Additionally, we would like: • Understanding of techniques used to make short-term climate forecasts, either empirical or physically-based, is desirable.
