The Polar and Paleoclimate modeling group
deling-research-group/> in the Institute for Arctic and Alpine Research
<https://instaar.colorado.edu/> and the Department of Atmospheric and
Oceanic Sciences <https://www.colorado.edu/atoc/> at the University of
Colorado Boulder <https://www.colorado.edu/> has an immediate opening for a
Postdoctoral Research Associate for work on polar and paleo ocean dynamics.
The Postdoctoral Research Associate will perform climate model analysis and
experiments, addressing exciting scientific questions related to the
dynamics of water mass changes and Arctic freshwater pathways, for both
present, future, and past climates. An overarching theme of the work of the
Postdoctoral Research Associate will be the comparison of climate model
simulations with observations and proxy data, using novel tracers to improve
the understanding of oceanic processes important for global climate. This
work will be done in collaboration with climate modeling and ocean proxy
experts at the National Center for Atmospheric Research, within INSTAAR, and
at the Ohio State University.
* Ph.D. in the atmospheric, oceanic, climate, or Earth sciences, or a
closely related discipline.
* Excitement and curiosity for interdisciplinary climate research
* Experience in the analysis of global climate model output.
* Coding experience in languages such as NCL, Matlab and/or Python.
* A promising publication track record.
* Ability to work independently as well as in a team environment.
* Ability to communicate effectively in english, both in writing and
* Experience with the Community Earth System Model (CESM).
* Experience in performing model simulations, preferably with the
* Subject matter expertise in one or several of the following: North
Atlantic/Arctic ocean dynamics, Arctic Ocean freshwater, oceanic
watermasses, paleoclimate of the past 20,000 years, model/observation/proxy
comparisons, model development, CESM, oceanic isotopes (13C, 14C, neodymium,
water isotopes, Pa/Th).
* Experience with analyzing CMIP ocean model output across multiple
This position is available immediately. Applications will be considered
until the position is filled. Preference will be given to applications
received by November 30, 2018. This is a position with an initial 1-year
term, with the possibility of extension based on performance and
availability of funding.
