*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.

*Qualifications: *
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.
