The UCLA Dept. of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences and the University of
Washington School of Oceanography have received a 5-year NSF Collaborative
Research award for assessment of the future evolution of the four Eastern
Boundary Upwelling Systems, including the U.S. West Coast. This project aims
to provide a comprehensive understanding of the consequences of climate
change and its interplay with decadal variability over the coming decades in
coastal upwelling systems. As described below, UCLA and UW seek two
postdoctoral scholars to work on this project, one based at UCLA and one
at UW.
The postdoctoral scholars will oversee continued development and
application of
atmospheric (WRF) and oceanic (ROMS) components, including physical and
biogeochemical aspects (BEC model). Development activities will concentrate
mainly on improvement of the coupled model and its biogeochemical modules,
while applications include analyses of coastal air-sea interaction,
response, and mechanisms of climate variability and change. The UCLA
will be supervised by Dr. Lionel Renault and will also involve
collaboration with
other faculty and researchers within UCLA (Profs. Alex Hall and Jim
and University of Washington (Prof. Curtis Deutsch and the other
scholar). The UW position will be supervised by Prof. Curtis Deutsch and
involve collaboration with the UCLA team. The positions are available for
year, initially, and will be renewable on an annual basis. They are
immediately, although the start date is negotiable.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences or a
related field, effective oral and written communication skills, and an
interest in
collaborative research. Strong programming skills are also essential.
running regional or global numerical models will be an advantage, especially
WRF, ROMS and/or biogeochemical models. Applicants should submit a brief
statement of research interests and goals and a complete CV, including
information for three references, to Dr. Lionel Renault for the UCLA
position or
Curtis Deutsch for the UW position. Applications should be respectively
submitted via email to lrenault at atmos.ucla.edu and cdeutsch at uw.edu .
Consideration of applications will begin immediately.
UCLA and UW are an Equal Opportunity / Affirmative Action employer. All
qualified applicants, including minorities and women, are encouraged to
