postdoctoral fellowship in Antarctic and Southern Ocean regional climate modeling
A three year postdoctoral fellowship in Antarctic and Southern Ocean regional climate modeling is available from the Center for Atmosphere Ocean Science (CAOS), situated within the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University (NYU). The goal of the project is to understand mechanisms of interactive coupling between the atmosphere, ocean, and sea ice on the mesoscale, and how these mechanism respond to, and potential feedback upon, large scale climate forcings. The project is supported under the “Decadal and Regional Climate Prediction using Earth System Models (EaSM)” initiative within NSF.
A primary duty of the fellow will be to couple regional component models of the atmosphere (WRF, http://www.wrf-model.org/), ocean (ROMS, http://www.myroms.org/), and sea ice (CICE, http://oceans11.lanl.gov/trac/CICE). The research will involve applying reanalyses and large-scale climate model output to the regional model. A PhD in the atmospheric, oceanic, or related sciences is required. Experience in coupled climate modeling, or in the regional modeling of either the atmosphere, ocean, or sea ice is also necessary. Familiarity with high-performance computing is also desirable. The position is available as part of a recently funded NSF collaborative effort between NYU and Ohio State University (OSU) and Old Dominion University (ODU). The fellow would be situated at NYU but visit and collaborate with researchers at OSU and ODU. A competitive salary is offered. The tentative start date is July 1, 2011, but is flexible.
