Research in Global Storm-Resolving Atmospheric Modeling in the Program in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences (AOS) at Princeton University

The AOS Program and the Cooperative Institute for Modeling the Earth System seek an energetic and enthusiastic postdoctoral or more senior researcher to participate in global storm-resolving atmospheric modeling research focused on global warming. This effort will elucidate how this advanced modeling approach affects interactions between global and smaller scale phenomena, including the response of extreme events, surface climate, and clouds to warming.

Individuals will join a vigorous research team with Princeton University Professor Stephan Fueglistaler, Timothy Merlis, and researchers at the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory. Available resources include world-class high-performance computing platform, state-of-the-art atmospheric models used for seamless weather-climate research, and an exceptional intellectual community of climate change researchers.

Candidates must have received a Ph.D. in the climate sciences (atmospheric science, oceanography), applied math, or related physical science disciplines. Rigorous training in atmospheric sciences is preferred along with very strong dynamical, modeling, and quantitative skills. Postdoctoral appointments are initially for one year with the renewal for subsequent years based on satisfactory performance and continued funding. A competitive salary is offered commensurate with experience and qualifications.

Princeton is interested in candidates who, through their research, will contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community. Applicants are asked to submit a cover letter, CV, a publication list, a statement of research experience and interests, and names of at least 3 references. Applicants should apply online at Review of applications will begin as soon as they are received and continue until the position is filled.

This position is 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.
