Postdoctoral Research and Visiting Research Scientists
Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences

Princeton University/GFDL


In collaboration with NOAA's Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL), the Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Program at Princeton University solicits applications to its Postdoctoral and Visiting Research Scientist Program.

The AOS Program and GFDL offer a stimulating environment with significant computational and intellectual resources in which to conduct collaborative or independent research. We primarily seek applications from recent Ph.D.s for postdoctoral positions but will accept applications from more experienced researchers. Applications from independent researchers and more senior scientists who may need partial support for sabbatical or short visits may also be considered. Postdoctoral appointments are initially for one year with the possibility of renewal for a second year based on satisfactory performance and continued funding. A competitive salary is offered commensurate with experience and qualifications.

We seek applications in all areas of the climate sciences. This includes research in basic processes in atmospheric and oceanic dynamics; climate dynamics, variability and prediction; atmospheric physics and chemistry; cloud dynamics and convection; boundary layer processes; land-sea-ice dynamics; continental hydrology and land processes; physical oceanography; ocean-atmosphere interaction; climate diagnostics and analysis. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in a relevant discipline by the time their appointment starts.

Further information about the Program may be obtained from: http://www.princeton.edu/aos/. Applicants are strongly encouraged to contact potential hosts at GFDL and Princeton University prior to application to discuss areas of possible research.

Complete applications, including a CV, copies of recent publications, at least 3 letters of recommendation, and a titled research proposal should be submitted by January 15, 2017 for full consideration. Applicants should apply online to http://jobs.princeton.edu, Requisition #1600924. We encourage applications from women, under-represented minorities, veterans and those with disabilities. These positions are subject to the University's background check policy. Princeton University is an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to age, race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
