*Postdoctoral Research Fellow (Climate Dynamics)*
The George Mason University, Center for Ocean-Land-Atmosphere Studies
(COLA) in the College of Science seeks a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to
work on the National Science Foundation/U.S. Department of Agriculture
project entitled, “Land Use Change and Land-Atmosphere Feedback
Processes as Regulators of Regional Climate Change.”
The project will explore how regional changes in land use over the
coming decades could alter land-atmosphere interactions against the
backdrop of a warming climate. Specifically, important climate processes
over land will be examined with observational data and climate models to
quantify: (1) the relationships between soil moisture, vegetation, and
surface fluxes; (2) the connection between surface fluxes and the
development of the atmospheric boundary layer, clouds and precipitation;
and (3) the role of the biogeophysical elements in these processes.
A Ph.D. in atmospheric sciences, hydrology, or a related discipline is
required. The successful candidate will conduct coupled land-atmosphere
modeling, assessment of climate sensitivity to variations at the land
surface, and the role of component models and parameterizations in
land-atmosphere feedbacks. Familiarity with coding and running global
climate models and land-surface schemes is necessary. Computer
programming skills and familiarity with UNIX will be necessary.
The position will involve direct collaboration with colleagues at the
National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR).
For full consideration, applicants must apply for position number F9879z
at http://jobs.gmu.edu/; complete and submit the online application; and
upload a cover letter, CV, and a list of three professional references
with contact information by 27 January 2015.
