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!
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
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
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

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.
