Academic Level:
Postdoc & Early Career

Description:
In collaboration with NOAA's Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL), the Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Program at Princeton University solicits applications to its Postdoctoral Research Scientist Program funded by the Cooperative Institute for Modeling the Earth System (CIMES).

The AOS Program and GFDL offer a stimulating environment with significant computational and intellectual resources in which to conduct collaborative or independent research for the modeling, understanding and predictability of the Earth System from weather to centennial time scales. We primarily seek applications from recent Ph.D.s for postdoctoral positions but will accept applications from more experienced researchers. Appointments are made at the rank of Postdoctoral Research Associate or more senior initially for one year with the possibility of renewal for a second year based on satisfactory performance and continued funding. A competitive salary is offered commensurate with experience and qualifications.

We seek applications in all areas of earth system science within the three research themes of CIMES: 1) Earth System Modeling; 2) Seamless prediction across time and space scales; 3) Earth System Science: Analysis and Applications. Current areas of particular interest include: high-spatial-resolution global modeling of weather and climate; predictability of high-impact weather events on global and regional scales; prediction of subseasonal to decadal hydroclimate variations, changes, and extremes; coupled system data-initialization and assimilation; ice sheet-ocean and ocean-seaice-climate interactions; development of comprehensive biogeochemical and ecological models of the marine and terrestrial systems, and studies of their interactions with climate; development of atmospheric physics parameterizations, and study of convection-clouds-microphysics-radiation interactions; role of atmospheric chemistry and aerosols in the Earth System; climate sensitivity and past-to-present-to-future variations/changes in climate; detection and attribution of changes in the Earth System; regional downscaling; and machine learning applications in climate science.

Further information about the Program may be obtained from: www.princeton.edu/aos. Applicants are strongly encouraged to contact potential hosts at GFDL and Princeton University prior to application to discuss areas of possible research.

Applicants must apply online to www.princeton.edu/acad-positions/position/9843. We would like to broaden participation in earth system scientific research and therefore encourage applications from groups historically under-represented in science.
