Postdoctoral fellowship on the climate impact of improved cryosphere-atmosphere-ocean interactions.
Goddard Space Flight Center invites applications for a postdoctoral fellowship
with a primary focus on the climate impact of improved ice sheet, ocean and
atmosphere interactions. The
research involves incorporating state of the art ice sheet models to the
coupled atmosphere-ocean general circulation model, ModelE, and to investigate the sensitivity and the feedbacks of the atmosphere-ocean-cryosphere
coupled system, along with its impact on the climate, ice sheet and sea-level
evolutions. The time scales considered range from twentieth century simulations,
paleo-climate, and future scenarios and will use paleo, in situ and satellite
observations for evaluation.
The applicant must have a Ph.D. in atmospheric science, oceanic
science, glaciology, physics or related field. Advanced scientific programming
skills are crucial and familiarity with Fortran is a plus. The applicant must submit three letters of reference.
The work will be conducted at NASA Goddard Institute for Space
Studies in New York City, and a competitive salary is
offered. The tentative start date is July 1, 2011. For further information,
please contact Sophie Nowicki ([hidden email]) or Gavin Schmidt ([hidden email] ) .
