Post-Doctoral Research Scientists

Consortium for Climate Change Study

Would you like to be part of a team developing new approaches to climate modeling and delivering climate change information to society and researchers? We seek scientists:

To work on the following challenging scientific problems and the main themes of study by the Consortium for Climate Change Study (CCliCS) Project sponsored by National Science Council in Taiwan. More than 10 post-doctoral research fellows will be devoted to the different topics as follows: (1) Climate system modeling, including model development and implementation of new physical parameterizations (e.g. radiation, convection, boundary layer and land surface), (2) Global and regional ocean modeling, focused on air-sea interactions and coupling processes, (3) Regional atmosphere-ocean coupled modeling system over Northwestern Pacific, (4) Aerosol-cloud-climate interactions, including forcing estimates and feedback process analysis, (5) Climate control on the regional high-impact weather extremes, focused on tropical cyclone, (6) Detection and attribution of observed changes in the extreme weather events and climate indices using high-resolution regional and global model, (7) Climate diagnostics and validation of climate simulation using new performance metrics and new generation of observational data. The employment can be started immediately. Recruited scientists will work within the Consortium for Climate Change Study (CCliCS), which aims to develop a climate model for climate change projections and study the impact of climate change on the extreme weather and climate.

Your profile

We seek persons with a PhD degree in meteorology/physics/atmospheric/ocean sciences or a similar discipline, with experience in numerical modeling, preferably related to weather and climate, and climate diagnostics. A good knowledge of the programming languages Fortran and Unix/Linux is a necessity. We seek persons who can work independently on complex problems but is also comfortable sharing larger tasks within a group. Good knowledge of spoken and written English is required, and a clear willingness to learn Chinese would be plus. Outstanding applicants with post-doctoral research experience may be hired as assistant researcher. The position is a full-time one-year term appointment that may be renewed annually up to 5 years.

Information & Application

More information is available from Dr. Huang-Hsiung Hsu, Research fellow at Research Center for Environmental Changes, Academia Sinica by phone: +886-2-27871935 or by email at: hhhsu@gate.sinica.edu.tw.

Applicants should send their CV and the name of three professional references to Dr. Huang-Hsiung Hsu no later than December 31, 2011 via either email (hhhsu@gate.sinica.edu.tw) or postal mail (Research Center for Environmental Changes, Academia Sinica, 128, Academia Road, Section 2, Nankang, 115 Taipei, Taiwan).
