*Postdoctoral Position in Climate Dynamics*

The University of Texas Institute for Geophysics (UTIG), part of the 
Jackson School of Geosciences (JSG) at the University of Texas at 
Austin, seeks a postdoctoral research fellow in climate dynamics. UTIG 
is known for international field programs in geophysics, planetary 
science, and earth sciences.


The selected candidate will collaborate with Dr. Pedro DiNezio on 
projects focusing on the dynamics of the Earth’s climate. Particular 
areas of interest include tropical climatology, ENSO dynamics and 
prediction, decadal variability, as well as past and future climate 
changes. Research will involve configuring, running, and analyzing 
climate model simulations, observational analysis, and the development 
of process-based diagnostics and proxy-model synthesis. Candidates are 
invited to propose specific research projects aligned with the themes 
outlined above (optional).

_Required Qualifications:_

• Ph.D. in climate dynamics, physical oceanography, atmospheric science, 
or meteorology; ability analyzing large multi-model climate datasets; 
ability designing and performing climate model experiments using CESM or 
a similar model on a shared super-computing platform; experience using 
MATLAB, NCO, Python, or NCL; experience with UNIX shell scripting and 

• Written and oral communication skills sufficient to lead author 
manuscripts and present research at conferences.

The initial appointment is for one year with a potential extension for 
an additional year. Starting date is flexible during summer/fall of 
2016. Salary is $60,000 per year and appointees are eligible for group 
health and dental insurance. Limited support will be available for

until the position has been filled.

Applications must contain: 1) a current Curriculum Vitae (CV) that 
includes education, employment history, and publications; 2) a concise 
statement of research interests and how they align with the climate 
research done at UTIG; and 3) names and contact information for three 
individuals willing to provide references.
