The Earth Research Institute at the University of California, Santa Barbara
( <https://www.eri.ucsb.edu/> https://www.eri.ucsb.edu/), is seeking a
postdoctoral scientist to contribute to a DOE-funded project focusing on
understanding the mechanisms for tropical and extratropical Pacific decadal
variability in present and future climates. 
The successful candidate will have the opportunity to define their own
original sub-project aligned with the project goals, in collaboration with
investigators at UC Santa Barbara, the Georgia Institute of Technology, the
NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory, and the Los Alamos National
Laboratory. The candidate will also have primary responsibility for
generating, and the first opportunity to analyze, a new 'Large Ensemble' of
future climate projections with the new DOE Energy Exascale Earth System
Model (E3SM). This ensemble will be released to the public upon completion
of the project and form a vital new community resource. The position will be
located at the Bren School at UC Santa Barbara, but will involve
collaborative visits to LANL to facilitate work with E3SM, as well as
in-person and remote interactions with the other team leads.

Basic Qualifications: PhD in atmospheric, oceanic, or climate science or a
related field at time of application.

Additional Qualifications: 1 year experience working in Linux/Unix
environments and programming in R, Matlab, Python, NCL, and/or FORTRAN.

Preferred Qualifications: The ideal candidate will also have experience
working with output from and conducting simulations with ocean and/or
climate models. Experience in the area of coupled climate dynamics,
especially with regards to variability on interannual to decadal timescales,
is highly desirable.

The initial term of the appointment will be 12 months, with the possibility
of subsequent extension based on performance and availability of funding.
For primary consideration apply by January 15, 2019. Position is open until
filled. Preferred start date would be May 2019. To apply, please upload a
cover letter, statement of research, including a description of current
research interests, experience with climate/Earth system modeling, and
near-term research goals. Please also provide a current CV and contact
information for 3 references to:
https://recruit.ap.ucsb.edu/apply/JPF01424. Email Samantha Stevenson (
<mailto:stevenson at bren.ucsb.edu> stevenson at bren.ucsb.edu) with any questions
related to the position.

The University is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to
the diversity and excellence of the academic community through research,
teaching and service as appropriate to the position.
