Dear Barbara,

Can you please forward the following postdoc job advertisement to the
CCSM community?

Thank you,

Postdoctoral Research Associate Position in Earth System Modeling at UGA

The Climate, Clouds, and Land Modeling Group in the Department of
Geography at the University of Georgia in Athens, GA (PI: Dr. Gabriel
Kooperman; http://kooperman.uga.edu) is seeking applications for a
postdoctoral research associate. The work will focus on simulating
extreme storms and precipitation events in the U.S. using
state-of-the-art Earth system models. In addition to Dr. Kooperman,
the researcher will work closely with three collaborators: Dr. Kevin
Reed (Stony Brook University, Stonybrook, NY,
https://you.stonybrook.edu/kareed/), Dr. Walter Hannah (Lawrence
Livermore National Laboratory, Livermore, CA, http://hannahlab.org),
and Dr. Angie Pendergrass (National Center for Atmospheric Research,
Boulder, CO, http://www.cgd.ucar.edu/staff/apgrass/). For additional
information or questions, please contact Dr. Kooperman
(kooperman at uga.edu) and see the detailed position description on his
website: http://kooperman.uga.edu/postdoc-position.html

- The position requires a PhD in atmospheric/climate science or a
related field by August 1, 2019.
- Candidates should have a record of publishing in respected
journals and presenting at conferences.
- Experience conducting experiments with Earth system models and/or
a background in statistical analysis of extreme events is desirable,
but candidates whose specific experience differs and are interested in
learning these skills are also encouraged to apply.

The researcher will be responsible for:
- designing experiments,
- running simulations,
- compiling observational data,
- analyzing results,
- writing manuscripts,
- presenting results, and
- helping to develop new proposals.

How to apply:
Interested candidates should send via email a cover letter
describing their interest in the position and previous experience, CV,
and names and contact information for three references to Dr.
Kooperman (kooperman at uga.edu). Review of applications will begin on
March 1, 2019 and continue until the position is filled.
