Postdoctoral Opportunity: Global Climate or Carbon-cycle Modeling
*Carnegie Institution for Science Department of Global Ecology on the
We are seeking an outstanding postdoctoral researcher who can lead
scientific research projects using global atmospheric general circulation
models and/or coupled atmosphere-ocean models. We currently use the NCAR
CESM family of models as our primary climate modeling tool, so familiarity
with this model would be a plus, but is not required. Your focus could be
on the atmosphere, land, or ocean, or some combination of these domains. We
are flexible with regard to your domain of expertise.
Our group seeks to improve both theoretical and applied understanding of
both the response of the climate system to various types of forcing, and
the strategies that could potentially be applied to reduce climate damage
(e.g., mitigation, adaptation, solar geoengineering). We are interested in
both physics and biogeochemistry, and also impacts of global change.
The successful candidate will be flexible and have broad interests, and
will play a leading role in planning and executing investigations, working
in a diverse group that will include climate modelers, energy-system
analysts, and field researchers. We are looking to develop an exciting
collegial atmosphere with a lot of personal freedom, wherein each group
member both leads research projects and collaborates on projects led by
others. However, we would like the new hire to use CESM as a primary
modeling tool. Most of our post-processing is done in python, often using
cdat (Climate Data Analysis Tools).
The position is available now, and we are flexible with regard to start
dates. The initial term will be for one year with the potential for renewal
for up to a maximum of four years. The position will involve working with
Ken Caldeira at the Carnegie Institution for Science Department of Global
Ecology on the Stanford University campus. Carnegie Institution post-docs
have access to most Stanford facilities.
Achievement in the area of scientific publication is the primary filter
determining which applications receive greater consideration.
Informal inquiries about this position can be made by emailing Ken Caldeira
at <kcaldeira at carnegiescience.edu>, however applications for employment can
be considered only through the employment webpage at :
