Postdoctoral Associate
Cooperative Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Studies (CIMAS)
University of Miami

Goal: Develop and test a new paradigm linking extratropical atmospheric
circulations to the initiation and evolution of El Niño/Southern
Oscillation events.

Project description: We are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral
research associate with a strong background in the numerical modeling of
large-scale ocean and atmosphere circulations to join an NSF-funded,
multi-institution research team investigating the initiation and evolution
of El Nino/Southern Oscillation (ENSO) events. In particular, the
postdoctoral researcher will be responsible for designing, conducting, and
analyzing controlled numerical model experiments to test a number of
research hypotheses focused on the efficacy of extratropical atmospheric
forcing of ENSO events. This research will improve our understanding of
sources and limitations of ENSO predictability, and lead to improved
predictions of developing ENSO events. The successful candidate will also
have access to numerous career preparation activities including
collaboration with researchers in both academic and cooperative
(academic-federal) institutions, funding to attend national and
international conferences, and access to professional development seminars
and workshops for early-career researchers.

Qualifications: Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Physical Oceanography,
Atmospheric Science or a related field and a demonstrated ability/interest
in publishing results in the peer-reviewed literature. Highly desirable
qualifications include the ability to run ocean and global coupled climate
models. Prior experience with a commonly used global coupled climate model,
such as GFDL’s coupled climate model or NCAR’s community earth system
model, is also desirable but not required. Knowledge of Unix, Fortran,
and/or C+, along with good oral and written communications skills, is also

Applicants must apply online at http://www.miami.edu/careers (Position
#P100019270). The application should include a curriculum vitae, a cover
letter stating research interests, experience and the contact information
for three professional references. The selection processes will begin on
December 15, 2016 and the position will remain open until filled. The
starting date of the position is expected to be in March 2017, but is
negotiable. The appointment will initially be for one year, renewable for a
second year depending on performance. Salary will be commensurate with
experience. Applicants may direct questions about the position to Dr.
Renellys C. Perez at Renellys.C.Perez at noaa.gov, Prof. Bruce T. Anderson at
brucea at bu.edu, or Prof. Benjamin Giese (b-giese at tamu.edu).
