I am seeking one post-doctoral researcher to join my research group 
(www.gabrielevillarini.com) in the Department of Civil and Environmental 
Engineering at the University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa.

The research will focus on: 1) the examination of the predictability of 
climate over the central United States at decadal and multi-decadal time 
scales; 2) the development of a framework for the decadal prediction of 
discharge over this area.

Initial appointment is for one year, with the possibility of renewal 
subject to satisfactory performance and continued funding. This position 
is immediately available. Women and individuals representing 
underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply.

Applicants must apply by sending CV, cover letter, and contact 
information for 3 references to

job posting # 100656. Review of applications will begin as soon as they 
are received, and continue until the position is filled or until October 
30, 2014. For additional information, contact Gabriele Villarini 
(gabriele-villarini at uiowa.edu<mailto:tom.delworth at noaa.gov>).

The selected researcher will be part of IIHR---Hydroscience & 
Engineering. She/he will have access to an exceptional range of 
resources, including laboratories, instrumentation and equipment, 
mechanical and electrical shops, research computing support, etc. 
Additionally, the researcher will be part of the Iowa Flood Center 
(IFC), the nation's first academic center devoted to the study of floods.

The University of Iowa is located in Iowa City, Iowa. Iowa City has been 
ranked one of the nation's most livable cities (USA Today, 2006), and

community built around higher education, with vibrant cultural 
opportunities and a long history of international connections, 
leadership, and accomplishment. Iowa City offers the safe, friendly 
quality of life for which the Midwest is known.
