Postdoctoral Fellow in Aerosol forcing in Next-generation Climate models

Location: Stockholm University, Stockholm, Sweden
Application Deadline: 28 May 2023

The postdoctoral fellow will be associated with the EU Horizon 2020 project Next Generation Earth Modeling Systems (NextGEMS) which aims to develop and apply global cloud and ocean eddy resolving climate models.

The successful candidate will be expected to develop, implement and utilize the new models, and work in close collaboration with other NextGEMS partners. The postdoctoral fellow will be primarily responsible for aerosol, aerosol-cloud interaction and aerosol forcing studies.

Postdoctoral Researcher

Location: Fort Collins, CO, U.S.A.
Application Deadline: 31 May 2023

The postdoctoral scientist will be working with the Hurrell and Rasmussen research teams to conduct independent and collaborative research in the exciting and new interdisciplinary area of how climate variability and change influence mesoscale weather systems, including proposed climate intervention strategies. This will include observational analyses and modeling studies assessing the future risk of extreme weather events, and how these events might be impacted by proposed climate intervention strategies. The postdoctoral scientist will also interact with and support graduate students and early career researchers, especially from the Hurrell and Rasmussen groups, but also other research groups across the Atmospheric Science Department. The position will help define the research and development direction of the Hurrell and Rasmussen research groups in the area of climate-mesoscale interactions, as well as participate in opportunities to apply atmospheric expertise to research efforts in other disciplines across and beyond the CSU campus.

Postdoctoral Position – Urban Extreme Weather Modeling

Location: National University of Singapore, Singapore
Application Deadline: Applications submitted before 1 March 2023 will receive priority review

The National University of Singapore (NUS) and the Center for Climate Research Singapore (CCRS) seek a highly motivated researcher to lead a modeling study of extreme weather events over Singapore using the newly developed urban-scale weather and climate model at CCRS (, which is part of the Meteorological Service Singapore (MSS). The successful candidate is expected to apply and evaluate the performance of the 100 m urban model known as uSINGV to simulate extreme rainfall and wind events in Singapore.

Tenure-Track Asst. Professor focused on hydroclimate modeling

Location: University of Wyoming, Laramie, WY, USA
Application Deadline: None specified

The University of Wyoming (UW) invites applications for Tenure Track Asst. Professor focused on modeling and remote sensing.
The focus of this position is numerical modeling, remote sensing, AI/ML, and big data approaches to problems involving the atmosphere and/or the climate.

Postdoc Position (100% TV L E13)

Location: University of Hohenheim, Stuttgart, Germany
Target starting date is February 1, 2023

The institute of Physics and Meteorology (IPM) at the University of Hohenheim is seeking a postdoc for the Land Atmosphere Feedback Observatory (LAFO) starting on February 1, 2023, in order to perform research studies on land-atmosphere (L-A) interaction.

LAFO operates a worldwide unique synergy of in-situ sensors, scanning wind, humidity and temperature lidar systems as well as radar sys- tems. This sensor synergy is applied to determine surface fluxes as well as turbulence pro- files in order to investigate new relationships among gradients, variances, and fluxes. Due to its configuration as observatory, a characterization of the diurnal cycle, transitions, the mesoscale and seasonal variability of the cloud-free and cloudy planetary boundary layer (PBL) as well as the moisture and energy budgets shall be achieved. The results shall be applied to study L-A feedback and to develop new parameterizations of L-A fluxes and turbulence including entrainment.

These objectives will be addressed in cooperation with an international research team that includes among others, e.g., NOAA and NASA in the US, the GEWEX Global Land/Atmosphere System Study (GLASS), and the Local Land-Atmosphere Coupling (LoCo) Working Group of the World Climate Research Programme.

Assistant Professor – Radar and Mesoscale/Synoptic Meteorology

Location: Florida State University, Tallahassee, FL, USA
Application Deadline: None specified

The Department of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Science (EOAS) at the Florida State University (FSU) invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in the area of Radar and Mesoscale/Synoptic Meteorology. The ideal candidate will have a strong background in radar meteorology and will use radars to address fundamental research questions on the physics and/or dynamics of Mesoscale/Synoptic Meteorology and their interactions with larger and/or smaller scale phenomena.

The successful candidate is expected to develop and maintain a vigorous externally funded research program in their area of interest and to contribute to both the undergraduate and graduate degree programs in the department. This includes contributing to teaching undergraduate courses in synoptic and mesoscale meteorology as well as teaching/developing other undergraduate and graduate courses in the candidate’s area of research specialization.
