*NRC Post-doctoral position for investigating the role of the ocean on
climate and extreme weather at NOAA/AOML*

The Physical Oceanography Division of NOAA/AOML is seeking a highly
motivated postdoctoral research associate (position to be filled through
the National Research Council) to investigate the role of the ocean on
climate and extreme weather events.

The successful candidate will join a research team at the Atlantic
Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML) of the National Oceanic
and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to use observations and ocean and/or
coupled atmosphere-ocean models to study decadal variability of the
Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) and its impact on global
monsoons and extreme weather events (e.g., extreme precipitation, drought,
heat waves, etc.). Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Physical
Oceanography/Atmospheric Science or a related field and demonstrated
ability to publish scientific results in peer-reviewed journals. Highly
desirable qualifications include knowledge of Unix and Fortran, strong
backgrounds in numerical modeling and analysis of large-scale ocean and
atmosphere datasets, and very good communication skills. Prior experience
with the NCAR’s Community Earth System Model (CESM/CCSM) is desirable, but
not required.

NRC Postdoctoral Research Associateship Program: South Atlantic MOC
variability and its link to Global Monsoons:
