Hydroclimate Uncertainty Postdoctoral Fellow (Climate & Ecosystems)-82850
OrganizationCE-Climate & Ecosystems
Berkeley Lab is Bringing Science Solutions to the World, and YOU can be a
part of it!
In the world of science, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) is
synonymous with "excellence." That's why we hire the best - whether in
research, science or operations. This is a great opportunity to bring your
top-notch skills to bear in support of world-class scientific research that
addresses national and global challenges!
Berkeley Lab’s *Climate & Ecosystems Division*
<http://eesa.lbl.gov/our-divisions/climate-ecosystem-sciences/> (CESD) has
an opening for a Hydroclimate Uncertainty Postdoctoral Fellow. You will be
apart of a new project called Hyperion to evaluate the scientific
credibility and decision-relevance of new and existing approaches for
generating regional climatic and hydrologic information for U.S.
stakeholders. Hyperion is designed around two major objectives. First,
Hyperion will seek to improve the fidelity of long-range hydrological
projections under climate change for the continental U.S. Second, Hyperion
will work directly with water agencies and other stakeholders to score
these projections in terms of their real-world utility for resource
What You Will Do:
- Conduct simulations of regional hydroclimate dynamics across a range
of scales and domains.
- Use state-of-the-science atmospheric models that operate at the native
scales of weather and regional climate phenomena.
- Evaluate model performance using a variety of observations and
- Develop an uncertainty quantification framework for linking
process-level insights regarding model fidelity to decision-relevant
- Author technical reports and peer-reviewed journal articles.
- Produce and deliver presentations of scientific results.
- Work collaboratively in a large multidisciplinary research team.
What Is Required:
- Recent Ph.D. in Earth sciences, atmospheric science, physics, applied
mathematics, data science or a closely related field.
- Demonstrated ability to perform comprehensive analyses making use of
different subsets of simulations, evaluation datasets, and advanced
- Demonstrated proficiency with one or more programming languages
(especially Python and/or Fortran).
- Advanced statistical and/or machine learning techniques for assessing
model fidelity, characterizing uncertainties, and identifying relationships
in large datasets.
- Experience in atmospheric modeling, data sciences, uncertainty
quantification and/or the use of in situ and remotely sensed observations
for model evaluation.
The posting shall remain open until the position is filled, however for
full consideration, please apply by close of business on September 16,
- Berkeley Lab understands the postdoctoral experience in a research
environment is unique. We are committed to the growth and development of
early career researchers in pursuit of becoming next generation scientists
and engineers. Read about the *excellent postdoctoral benefits*

- This is a 1 year postdoctoral appointment with the possibility of
renewal based upon satisfactory job performance, continuing availability of
funds and ongoing operational needs. You must have less than 4 years paid
- Salary will be predetermined based on student/postdoctoral step rates.
- There are multiple openings for this position.
- This position requires completion of a background check.
