Two Positions in Climate Change and Upwelling Systems at UCLA and UW

The UCLA Dept. of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences and the University of
Washington School of Oceanography have received a 5-year NSF Collaborative
Research award for assessment of the future evolution of the four Eastern
Boundary Upwelling Systems, including the U.S. West Coast. This project aims
to provide a comprehensive understanding of the consequences of climate
change and its interplay with decadal variability over the coming decades in
coastal upwelling systems. As described below, UCLA and UW seek two
postdoctoral scholars to work on this project, one based at UCLA and one based
at UW.

The postdoctoral scholars will oversee continued development and application of
atmospheric (WRF) and oceanic (ROMS) components, including physical and
biogeochemical aspects (BEC model). Development activities will concentrate
mainly on improvement of the coupled model and its biogeochemical modules,
while applications include analyses of coastal air-sea interaction, biogeochemical
response, and mechanisms of climate variability and change. The UCLA position
will be supervised by Dr. Lionel Renault and will also involve collaboration with
other faculty and researchers within UCLA (Profs. Alex Hall and Jim McWilliams)
and University of Washington (Prof. Curtis Deutsch and the other postdoctoral
scholar). The UW position will be supervised by Prof. Curtis Deutsch and will
involve collaboration with the UCLA team. The positions are available for one
year, initially, and will be renewable on an annual basis. They are available
immediately, although the start date is negotiable.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences or a
related field, effective oral and written communication skills, and an interest in
collaborative research. Strong programming skills are also essential. Experience
running regional or global numerical models will be an advantage, especially
WRF, ROMS and/or biogeochemical models. Applicants should submit a brief
statement of research interests and goals and a complete CV, including contact
information for three references, to Dr. Lionel Renault for the UCLA position or
Curtis Deutsch for the UW position. Applications should be respectively
submitted via email to lrenault at and cdeutsch at .
Consideration of applications will begin immediately.

UCLA and UW are an Equal Opportunity / Affirmative Action employer. All
qualified applicants, including minorities and women, are encouraged to apply.
