The Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University invites applications for an Associate Research Scientist position in the Atmospheric Chemistry research group of the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, Columbia University in Palisades, NY. The successful candidate will conduct simulations in a chemistry-climate model to investigate the impacts of regional aerosol emissions on climate. The project is a collaborative research effort involving three U.S. chemistry-climate models and will examine regional climate variability and the detection of regional climate responses to aerosol forcing.
Candidates should have completed their PhD and at least one year of postdoctoral research by April 2015, in atmospheric science or a related field. Experience designing, executing, and analyzing simulations in the NOAA GFDL CM3 chemistry-climate strongly preferred. The successful candidate will also have experience evaluating models with aerosol observations, either in situ or remotely sensed. Prior experience with analyzing regional climate responses is a plus. A record of publications in scientific literature required.
Appointment will be for 1-year, with continuation pending funding and progress.
Search will remain open for at least 30 days after the ad appears and will continue until the position is filled.
