Hydroclimate Uncertainty Postdoctoral Fellow (Climate & Ecosystems)-82850


CE-Climate & Ecosystems

Berkeley Lab is Bringing Science Solutions to the World, and YOU can be 
a part of it!

In the world of science, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) is 
synonymous with "excellence." That's why we hire the best - whether in 
research, science or operations. This is a great opportunity to bring 
your top-notch skills to bear in support of world-class scientific 
research that addresses national and global challenges!

Position Summary:
Berkeley Lab’s _Climate & Ecosystems Division_ 
has an opening for a Hydroclimate Uncertainty Postdoctoral Fellow. You 
will be apart of a new project called Hyperion to evaluate the 
scientific credibility and decision-relevance of new and existing 
approaches for generating regional climatic and hydrologic information 
for U.S. stakeholders. Hyperion is designed around two major objectives. 
  First, Hyperion will seek to improve the fidelity of long-range 
hydrological projections under climate change for the continental U.S. 
  Second, Hyperion will work directly with water agencies and other 
stakeholders to score these projections in terms of their real-world 
utility for resource management.

What You Will Do:

    Conduct simulations of regional hydroclimate dynamics across a range
    of scales and domains.
    Use state-of-the-science atmospheric models that operate at the
    native scales of weather and regional climate phenomena.
    Evaluate model performance using a variety of observations and
    analytical approaches.
    Develop an uncertainty quantification framework for linking
    process-level insights regarding model fidelity to decision-relevant
    Author technical reports and peer-reviewed journal articles.
    Produce and deliver presentations of scientific results.
    Work collaboratively in a large multidisciplinary research team.

What Is Required:

    Recent Ph.D. in Earth sciences, atmospheric science, physics,
    applied mathematics, data science or a closely related field.
    Demonstrated ability to perform comprehensive analyses making use of
    different subsets of simulations, evaluation datasets, and advanced
    analysis techniques.
    Demonstrated proficiency with one or more programming languages
    (especially Python and/or Fortran).
    Advanced statistical and/or machine learning techniques for
    assessing model fidelity, characterizing uncertainties, and
    identifying relationships in large datasets.
    Experience in atmospheric modeling, data sciences, uncertainty
    quantification and/or the use of in situ and remotely sensed
    observations for model evaluation.

The posting shall remain open until the position is filled, however for 
full consideration, please apply by close of business on September 16, 


    Berkeley Lab understands the postdoctoral experience in a research
    environment is unique. We are committed to the growth and
    development of early career researchers in pursuit of becoming next
    generation scientists and engineers. Read about the _excellent
    postdoctoral benefits_

    This is a 1 year postdoctoral appointment with the possibility of
    renewal based upon satisfactory job performance, continuing
    availability of funds and ongoing operational needs. You must have
    less than 4 years paid postdoctoral experience.
    Salary will be predetermined based on student/postdoctoral step rates.
    There are multiple openings for this position.
    This position requires completion of a background check.
