2 Postdoctoral Positions in Regional Climate Change at UCLA
The UCLA Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences and Center for
Climate Science seek two postdoctoral scholars, to be supervised by Prof.
Alex Hall. Each position would begin as soon as possible. Each would
initially be for one year, but is renewable for one or more years,
contingent on satisfactory progress.
For the first position, the general research area is downscaling global
climate model output to produce credible high-spatial-resolution projections
of anthropogenic climate change over the Western U.S., analyzing these
projections, and developing innovative and more accurate downscaling methods
that can be applied more broadly. The science this position will produce
will be of great interest to water managers and other stakeholders, and
there is the potential to interact with the stakeholder community.
For the second position, the general research area is using global and
regional climate models to understand climate change impacts on drought,
vegetation, and wildfire in California. The science this position will
produce will be of great interest to water managers, forest and fire
managers, and other stakeholders, and there is the potential to interact
with the stakeholder community. This project is part of a larger effort to
understand the future of hydrologic extremes.
Any candidate with interest in these topics is invited to apply. Applicants
should have a Ph.D. in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences or a related field,
effective oral and written communication skills, and strong programming and
Applicants should submit (1) a statement of research interests and goals, no
longer than one page, and (2) a complete CV, including contact information
for three references. These materials should be addressed to Ms. Katharine
Reich at kreich at ioes.ucla.edu <mailto:kreich at ioes.ucla.edu> . Please
indicate which position interests you ("Downscaling" or "Wildfire") in the
subject line of your email. Consideration of applications will begin
immediately and continue until the positions are filled.
