Postdoctoral Research Associate – Analysis and Modeling of Extreme Events


The Atmospheric Sciences and Global Change Division at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) seeks a postdoctoral research associate to perform research on analysis and modeling of extreme events in the context of climate variability and change. The successful candidate will work with a project team to perform analyses of observations and climate simulations to understand the underlying mechanisms for how extreme events respond to external forcing through dynamical and thermodynamical effects. The candidate may also perform research on analysis and modeling to understand the predictability of extreme events and water cycle processes on subseasonal-to-multidecadal timescales. Ability to design and perform numerical experiments using climate models to test specific hypotheses will be considered favorably, in addition to analyzing observations and output from climate models.
