Postdoctoral fellowship on the climate impact of improved cryosphere-atmosphere-ocean interactions.

Nowicki, Sophie (GSFC-6141)

NASA 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] ) .
