Job Summary 	
Posting Description 	

A Research Associate is needed at the Department of Atmospheric and 
Oceanic Sciences, at the University of Colorado, to conduct innovative 
research in the area of understanding Indian Ocean decadal climate 
variability. The overall goal is to investigate the causes for Indian 
Ocean decadalSSTvariability and its associated atmospheric variability 
in the coupled climate system, with particular focus on exploring the 
role of Indian Ocean internal processes (versus external forcing) in 
generating the variability. The approach is to combine observational 
analysis using advanced statistic techniques (e.g., linear inverse 
modeling) with modeling experiments using coupled global climate models 
(e.g., NCAR’s Community Earth System Model). The successful applicant 
will work with the Principal Investigator (Weiqing Han) in collaboration 
with scientists atNOAA(Matt Newman, CoI; Mike Alexander, collaborator) 
andNCAR(Jerry Meehl and Aixue Hu, collaborators). Applications should 
include Curriculum Vitae with a publication list, 3 names of references, 
and a cover letter that describes previous and current research 
activities and qualifications for the Research Associate (“postdoctoral 
researcher”) advertised at the University of Colorado.

At the time of appointment, the successful candidate should have a Ph.D. 
degree in ocean, atmospheric, climate sciences, or a related field. 
Statistical data analysis skills are required and modeling experience – 
particularly for running coupled climate models – is preferred. Initial 
appointment is for two years with possible renewal for another year, 
contingent upon performance and availability of funds. Inquiries may be 
directed to Weiqing Han (whan at colorado.edu). Applications will continue 
to be accepted until the position is filled. The position may start in 
the fall of 2015 or on a mutually agreeable date.
