Postdoctoral Research Associate in Climate Variability and Change

Job description

Princeton University

The Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Program at Princeton University, seeks a postdoctoral researcher or more senior position for research related to multi-decadal to centennial climate variability and change, including the connections to tropical cyclone activity. A key focus will be dynamical model experiments to understand the character of and causes behind changes over the past millennium, and an assessment of the causes behind past centennial changes in climate and tropical cyclone activity. This would include analysis of and modifications to coupled climate model experiments. The research will also examine the relationships and interactions between of natural multi-decadal to centennial variability, and the climate system response to radiative forcing changes. The research will make extensive use of both observations and a variety of modeling tools, including high-resolution global climate models. The selected candidate will have one or more of the following attributes: (a) a strong background in climate dynamics, atmospheric sciences, physical oceanography, or a closely related field; (b) experience using and analyzing advanced climate models and global observational datasets, and (c) strong diagnostic skills in analyzing large data sets. The selected candidate will have a Ph.D. in meteorology, atmospheric sciences, or a related field. Initial appointment is for one year with the possibility of renewal subject to satisfactory performance and available funding. This position is subject to the University's background check policy. Complete applications, including a CV, publication list, contact information for 3 letters of recommendation, and a statement of research interests, should be submitted online at For additional information, contact Gabriel Vecchi ([email protected]).
