Description:
The Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Scientist position in paleoclimatology with a specific focus on hydroclimate. The successful candidate will work on an NSF funded project to improve our understanding of North American hydroclimate over the past millennium. The position will be located at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory in Palisades, NY in the research group of Professor Park Williams and in close collaboration with Professors Ed Cook, Richard Seager, Jason Smerdon, and Ben Cook.

Candidates must have a PhD in physical climatology, or a closely related field, and a strong interest in hydroclimatic variability and change over timescales from seasons to millennia. Demonstrated skill in statistics, computer programming, the ability to analyze and manipulate large and disparate datasets, and familiarity with tree-ring reconstructions of precipitation and drought highly desired.

Appointment will be for 1 year, with continuation pending funding and progress.
