From "Grise, Kevin M (kmg3r)" <>
To "" <>
Date Mon, 6 Jan 2020 19:38:50 +0000

The Department of Environmental Sciences at the University of Virginia
(UVA) seeks a highly motivated Postdoctoral Research Associate in Climate
Dynamics.  The research associate will work in the lab of Professor Kevin
Grise and participate in a project funded by the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)’s Modeling, Analysis, Predictions,
and Projections Program.

This position will focus on using global climate model output from
phase 6 of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP6) to better
characterize the roles of the large-scale atmospheric circulation in regional
climate change in the United States in the 21st century.  Innovative
mathematical/statistical techniques will be developed to better understand
the sources of uncertainty in future model projections.

QUALIFICATION REQUIREMENTS: Completion of a Ph.D. in atmospheric
science/meteorology, computer science, mathematics, statistics, or a related
discipline is required by the appointment start date.  A strong background
in both atmospheric science/meteorology and mathematics/statistics is
preferred.  The most qualified applicants will have 1) prior experience working
with large gridded atmospheric science datasets (atmospheric reanalyses
and/or global climate model output) on Linux or Unix operating systems, 2)
prior research experience working with North American regional climate, and
3) excellent written and oral communication skills.

TO APPLY: Apply online for posting number R0012406 at

and attach a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and contact information for
three individuals who can provide professional reference letters. Please
note that multiple documents can be uploaded in the box.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: Review of applications will begin January 1, 2020
and continue until the position is filled. The University will perform
background checks on all new hires prior to employment.

This is a one-year appointment that may be renewed for an additional six
months, contingent upon available funding and satisfactory performance.
