Postdoctoral Research Associate

The Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Program at Princeton University in
cooperation with NOAA's Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) seeks a
postdoctoral researcher or more senior position to conduct studies on the
predictability of seasonal hydroclimate extremes.  This position is a part
of the Forecasting a Continuum of Environmental Threats (FACETs) project,
which is a proposed next-generation hazardous weather paradigm that utilizes
probabilistic information as its foundation.  FACETs will leverage physical
and social science research to support a system that is modern, flexible,
and designed to communicate clear and simple hazardous weather, water, and
climate information to serve society.  FACETs supports NOAA's Weather-Ready
Nation initiative to build community resilience in the face of increasing
vulnerability to extreme weather, water, and climate events. 

Under the supervision of Dr. Nat Johnson, the selected candidate is expected
to leverage available observational and dynamical forecast model data to
study the causes and predictability of hydroclimate extremes, including
droughts, pluvials, and tropical cyclone impacts, over North America on
seasonal timescales.  The research will entail the analysis of retrospective
seasonal forecasts from the North American Multi-Model Ensemble (NMME), with
a focus on determining the viability of developing probabilistic hazard
outlooks for seasonal hydroclimate extremes. 

The selected candidate will have a Ph.D. in atmospheric science,
oceanography, hydrology, or a related field. Candidates with strong
backgrounds in weather or climate prediction and the analysis of large
datasets are preferred. Initial appointment is for one year with the
possibility of renewal subject to satisfactory performance and available
funding. This position is subject to the University's background check

Complete applications, including cover letter, a curriculum vitae a
publication list, and contact information for three references, should be
submitted online to
