    Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Program

      Postdoctoral Research Associate in Understanding
      Cryosphere-Aerosol Interactions Over High Mountain Asia

The Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Program at Princeton University, in 
association with NOAA's Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL), 
seeks a postdoctoral or more senior candidate for research related to 
how cryosphere-aerosol interactions affect hydroclimate variability over 
High Mountain Asia. A key focus will require comparing observations and 
high-resolution global climate model output to understand hydroclimate 
variability over High Mountain Asia with a particular emphasis on the 
cryosphere-aerosol interactions and related processes. This will include 
an assessment of presently available and future developmental 
satellite-based data products and other regional observational or 
model-based reanalyses. This will also include an assessment of 
aerosol-climate interactions in the region and targeted analysis to 
better understand how aerosol deposition and its variability may affect 
regional hydroclimate in both the historical record and the future. The 
research will also examine how the cryosphere and hydroclimate respond 
to natural variability and radiative forcing changes over the next 100 
years. This position will provide the opportunity for collaboration 
within GFDL and Princeton University, as well as with members of the 
NASA High Mountain Asia Team at various institutions. Travel to meet 
with collaborators will be encouraged, but not required.

The selected candidate will have one or more of the following 
attributes: (a) a strong background in hydroclimate, climate dynamics, 
snow hydrology, cryosphere science, or a closely related field; (b) 
experience using and analyzing advanced climate models and observational 
datasets (including remote sensing data); (c) strong diagnostic skills 
in analyzing large data sets.

Candidate must have a PhD. Initial appointment is for one year with the 
possibility of renewal subject to satisfactory performance and available 

Complete applications, including a CV, publication list, at least 3 
letters of recommendation, and a short statement of research interests 
should be submitted by*December 1, 2016*for full consideration.
