Post-Doctoral Position in Arctic Sea-ice and Atmospheric Processes

Amy Solomon (NOAA Affiliate)

Dear Colleagues,

The University of Colorado’s Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) invites applications for a post-doctoral researcher working on sea-ice and atmospheric processes. This post-doctoral position will be located at the NOAA Physical Sciences Laboratory in Boulder, Colorado. The position offers strong links to numerous Arctic scientists affiliated with CIRES and NOAA in Boulder, as well as a direct association with the Multidisciplinary drifting Observatory for the Study of Arctic Climate (MOSAiC, consortium of national and international scientists.

This post-doctoral research opportunity targets atmospheric links with the sea ice by examining the surface energy budget, its relation to atmospheric drivers including clouds and precipitation, and the representation of these processes by a coupled model. The key science questions to be addressed include:

·         How does the partitioning of surface energy budget terms over sea ice vary with cloud state, atmospheric stability, season, snow depth, and sea-ice thickness?

·         How can model representation of Arctic cloud and precipitation processes be optimized to simultaneously and consistently simulate observed relationships between cloud radiative effects and net precipitation?

Applicants should have a background in Arctic sea-ice and/or atmospheric processes, with prior experience in working with large data sets and/or using numerical models. The position requires strong teamwork and communications skills. Proficiency in appropriate programming languages is necessary (Python, Matlab, IDL, etc.). Applicants should have received their PhD degree within the past 3 years.

Potential candidates are very welcome to contact Matt Shupe ([hidden email]) or Amy Solomon ([hidden email]) with any questions about this position.
