The Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) at
the University of Colorado in Boulder, Colorado and the NOAA Earth System
Research Laboratory (ESRL) Physical Sciences Division (PSD) have an
immediate opening for a Post-doctoral Research Associate with a
comprehensive understanding of precipitation physics, and experience in
mesoscale- and ensemble- numerical weather prediction using the Weather
Research and Forecasting (WRF) model. The Post-doctoral Researcher will
have an appointment within the ESRLPhysical Sciences Division (PSD). The
individual will work as part of an interdisciplinary team of scientists in
PSD to study the hydrometeorology of the United States leading to extreme
precipitation; to help design and execute regional field studies; and to
study the effects of climate change on extreme precipitation events in the
U.S. The research is intended to inform decision-making through activities
such as providing a scientific basis to improve the accuracy of dam safety
regulations set by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, the U.S. Army Core of
Engineers, and other federal, state and local agencies. This position has
an initial term of 2 years, with possible extension subject to performance
and availability of funding.

• To set up, run, and analyze ensemble model simulations of case studies of
extreme precipitation events including cool season and warm season across
various regions of the US.
• To contribute to the experimental design of hydro-meteorological and
hydro-climatological studies of extreme precipitation events, and to help
coordinate these efforts with key regional partners.
• To lead studies of extreme precipitation in future climates in the
complex terrain of mountainous regions by downscaling large scale climate
models to basin-scale or higher resolutions
• Collaborate with CIRES and ESRL scientists to synthesize analysis results
into meaningful scientific conclusions
• To facilitate interactions and coordination with key federal, state and
local external partners.
• To lead and contribute to the publication of research results in the
peer-reviewed literature.
