postdoc position: tropical cyclone variability

Postby patricola » Thu Jun 03, 2021 12:24 am

The Department of Geological and Atmospheric Sciences at Iowa State University seeks an Atmospheric/Climate Science Postdoctoral Researcher to investigate the physical mechanisms that drive tropical cyclone variability using high-resolution climate models. The position calls for an individual with experience in climate research, climate modeling, high-performance computing, and analyzing large datasets. The position is supported by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Regional and Global Model Analysis (RGMA) program and will be supervised by Dr. Christina Patricola.

Responsibilities include:
- Design, perform, and analyze high-resolution climate model simulations (using Earth System Models and/or Regional Climate Models) to understand oceanic and atmospheric drivers of tropical cyclone variability.
- Identify simulated tropical cyclones in high-frequency climate model data using tracking algorithms.
- Author peer-reviewed journal articles and communicate scientific results to collaborators and peers.

Required Minimum Qualifications:
- Ph.D. in Atmospheric Science, Climate Science, Physical Oceanography, or a related field.
- Demonstrated ability to design and run climate model simulations with Earth System Models and/or Regional Climate Models on high-performance computing systems.
- Experience analyzing large climate model datasets and observations to understand climate variability/change.
- Proficiency with one or more programming languages (e.g., Matlab, Python, Fortran).
- Established publication record in peer-reviewed journals.
- Excellent written and oral communications skills.
- Ability to work independently and to collaborate with a team.
