Subject: Post doc for regional climate change and flood risk
To: all_users at atmos.washington.edu


I’m looking for a post-doc to work on a new Homeland Security project
looking at flood risk with climate change. This project will use regional
climate and regional hydrologic modeling to better understand the regional
issues of flooding in the PWW and will help develop scenarios and to
support a companion project in the UW College of Built Environments. Start
date could be as early as sometime this fall.

Please let me know if you are interested, and please forward. Thanks!

Research Associate – Flood Risk and Climate Change

The University of Washington Bothell (UWB) is accepting applicationshttp://
ciri.illinois.edu. The successful applicant and will engage in research on
regional climate change and flood risk as part of a team including the
University of Washington Climate Impacts Group (CIG). This project aims to
direct basic research on regional climate change to support adaptation to
current and future flood risk in Pacific Northwest communities. Specific
project tasks include:

• Perform and analyze regional climate simulations using the WRF mesoscale
atmospheric model and regional hydrologic simulations using the VIC
hydrologic model.

• Work with stakeholders to develop actionable science to support
adaptation and planning.

• Collaborate with other staff on data delivery and stakeholder support.

Required qualifications: Ph.D. earned within the last four years in
Atmospheric Sciences, Civil Engineering/Hydrology, or related discipline;
demonstrated experience with climate system modeling or climate model
analysis; and advanced programming skills for modeling, data analysis, and
visualization in a Linux environment (e.g. Matlab, IDL, c, Fortran, python).

Desired Qualifications: Familiarity with western US regional climate change
including climate dynamics and hydrologic processes. Knowledge of western
US climate-related resource management issues and stakeholders.

Applicants should supply a statement of relevant experience, curriculum
vitae, contact information for three references, and earliest potential
start date to Prof. Eric Salathé at salathe at uw.edu. Consideration of
applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is
filled. Initial appointment is for 12 months with the possibility of
