Geological Project Scientist (Multiscale Modeler of the Earth System) - 79259
Organization:  ES-Earth Sciences

The Center at LBNL for Integrative Modeling of the Earth System (CLIMES) is seeking a project scientist to help jump-start an innovative project to develop multiscale models of the atmosphere for the next generation of local-to-global climate projections. The primary goal is to produce better models of critical climate processes from cloud-system to global scales through improved physical and computational implementations.  The researcher would join a rapidly expanding team at LBNL conducting innovative research in abrupt and extreme climate change, ice-sheet simulation, carbon and methane cycle measurement and modeling, integrated assessment, and advanced numerical methods for climate dynamics. The project scientist will develop and apply atmospheric models with unprecedented telescoping capabilities to simulate the multiscale dynamics of the tropical ocean-atmosphere system.  The individual will work closely with climate scientists, computer scientists, and applied mathematicians at LBNL and other DOE National Laboratories as part of a multi-institutional collaboration supported by DOE’s climate research and Scientific Discovery through Advanced Computing (SciDAC) program. The selected candidate will report to the principal investigator of this SciDAC project who also heads LBNL’s Climate Sciences Department, the Carbon and Climate Program, and CLIMES.

• Conduct research in collaboration with other LBNL and external researchers to run and evaluate climate models in uncoupled and coupled modes to answer key science questions.
• Publish research results in technical reports and peer-reviewed journals and present technical results at scientific conferences.
• Work as part of a scientific team and collaborate with other climate scientists and technical personnel, internal and external to LBNL, to design and implement research projects.
• Ensure all assignments are performed in accordance with laboratory practices and policies.

• Recent PhD in Meteorology/Climate Science, Applied Math, Physical Science, Engineering, or related field.
• Interest or experience in cloud and climate physics.
• Demonstrated understanding of numerical analysis.
• Experience running and modifying complex programs in the physical sciences or engineering.
• Demonstrated written and verbal communication skills with capabilities to author technical and scientific reports, peer-reviewed journal publications and proposals, and deliver scientific presentations.
• Demonstrated communication and interpersonal skills to work in a diverse multidisciplinary research team environment.

Additional Preferred:
• Experience with climate models and numerical methods.
• Experience developing and modifying simulation models on large-scale, massively parallel computing systems
• Expertise in probability and statistics.

NOTE: This is a 3 year term appointment with the possibility of renewal for up to 5 total years based upon satisfactory job performance, continuing availability of funds, and ongoing operational needs
