The Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Program at Princeton University, in association with NOAA’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL), seeks to fill a postdoctoral research associate or more senior research position for investigating the climate sensitivity and response to aerosol effects on clouds and cloud brightening with GFDL climate models and enhancing the modeling capability in aerosol and cloud microphysics, and aerosol/cloud/radiation/circulation inter-linkages.
About the position:
- The position will focus on using the latest GFDL climate models (CM4 and ESM4) to design and execute simulations to investigate the effects of aerosol particles seeding low clouds on Earth’s radiative balance, and subsequent changes in global/regional circulation patterns, hydroclimate and extreme events.
- Candidates will have to demonstrate a strong background in climate modeling and climate science, as well as experience using and analyzing numerical models and/or large observational datasets.
- Candidates must have a PhD in atmospheric physics, dynamic meteorology, Earth system science, climate studies, or related fields.
- The initial appointment is for one year with the possibility of renewal subject to satisfactory performance and available funding.
Apply online including:
- Cover letter
- Publication list
- A statement of research interests and contact information of 3 references
