Postdoctoral/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 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. Appointments are made at the rank of Postdoctoral Research Associate or more senior 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.

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, contact information for at least three references, and a titled research proposal should be submitted by March 1, 2018 for full consideration. Applicants must apply online https://www.princeton.edu/acad-positions/position/5581. We wish to broaden participation in climate-related sciences, and therefore particularly encourage applications from individuals with experience working with groups under-represented in science. These positions are subject to the University's background check policy.

Princeton University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action 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.
