YALE UNIVERSITY: Postdoctoral Positions in Ocean, Atmosphere and Climate Dynamics
One or two postdoctoral positions in Ocean, Atmosphere and Climate Dynamics will be available at Yale University, Department of Geology and Geophysics (http://people.earth.yale.edu/profile/alexey-fedorov/about). General fields of research include ocean and atmosphere circulation, ocean-atmosphere interactions, the role of ocean in climate, climate variability and change, paleoclimate. Particular topics: El Niño and mean tropical climate in the past, present and future; biases in climate GCMs; stability, variability and predictability of the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation (AMOC). The work will involve numerical modeling, analyses of observational and GCM data, and analytical approaches. A PhD in physical oceanography, atmospheric sciences or related disciplines is required. Experience with ocean or climate GCM is a big advantage. Funding is currently available for two to three years. Successful candidates can begin their program at Yale between April September, 2016.
