Job Description:

Working Title Postdoctoral Fellow Position Location Fort Collins, CO Research Professional Position Yes Posting Number AP Position Type Admin Professional/ Research Professional Number of Vacancies 1 Work Hours/Week 40 Proposed Annual Salary Range 55,000 Desired Start Date 09/01/2020 Position End Date (if temporary) To ensure full consideration, applications must be received by 11:59pm (MT) on 03/06/2020 Description of Work Unit The Department of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University is a large academic and research department in the Walter Scott, Jr. College of Engineering. We currently have twenty faculty members, eighty graduate students, over seventy full-time researchers and postdoctoral fellows, and an outstanding and dedicated support staff. Dr. Charlotte DeMott is a Research Scientist III in the Department of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University. Her research focuses on understanding ocean-atmosphere coupled feedbacks on intraseasonal timescales, particularly how ocean processes regulate the frequency, intensity, and organization of tropical atmospheric convection. Her research employs regional and global models and utilizes remote and in situ observations. Position Summary The Department of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University invites applicants for a postdoctoral fellow position to study Warm Pool ocean- atmosphere coupled processes under the direction of Dr. Charlotte DeMott starting in Spring or Summer 20 The successful candidate will explore how processes in the upper ocean and lower atmosphere, and their scale interactions, regulate the exchange of energy across the air-sea interface, and how biases in the ocean may affect the atmosphere, and vice versa. Budgets of heat, moisture, and momentum using the DOE Energy Exascale Earth System Model (E3SM) are expected to form the basis of this exploration, followed by comparisons to relevant observations and reanalysis products to assess model performance. New diagnostic methods developed during this study may be applied to CMIP6 model output and potentially incorporated into the PCMDI model diagnostics package. The primary focus of this study is the Madden-Julian oscillation, but the successful candidate may explore additional scales, regions, or phenomena of interest. The position will be based in Fort Collins, Colorado, where the candidate will informally interact with large-scale climate dynamics research groups led by several CSU faculty members. The post doc will also formally interact with Dr. Nicholas Klingaman (University of Reading) who is a Co-PI on this project. This position will report to Dr. Charlotte DeMott.
