Prof. Lorraine Lisiecki at the University of California Santa Barbara  
is recruiting for a post-doctoral research position in quantitative  
paleoclimate analysis. A variety of research projects are available  
depending on the candidate?s background and interests. Potential  
projects include: innovative quantitative approaches to age model  
development (particularly uncertainty analysis), global compilations  
of paleoceanographic data, modeling of ice volume response to orbital  
forcing, and analysis of Plio-Pleistocene interactions between the  
carbon cycle, ocean circulation, and ice volume. Funding will be for  
one year with a second year of support available, conditional upon  
demonstrated productivity.

Expertise is required in one or more of the following areas:  
paleoclimate age model development (orbital tuning, stratigraphic  
correlation, etc), climate/paleoclimate modeling, or  
compilation/analysis of large datasets. Additionally, applicants  
should have a successful publication record, demonstrated quantitative  
skills, and programming experience (e.g., Matlab, R, C++, or Fortran).  
PhD must be completed before employment (start date negotiable).

Applicants should email a statement of research interests, CV, and the  
names and contact information of three references to Prof. Lorraine  
Lisiecki, lisiecki at geol.ucsb.edu

Review of applications will begin April 29, 2013, but applications  
will be accepted until the position is filled.

The University is especially interested in candidates who can  
contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community  
through research, teaching and service. The University of California  
is an Equal Opportunity Affirmative Action employer.
