Two Postdoctoral Scholar Positions in Climate Studies

Location: University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia
Application Deadline: 29 June 2022

Two postdoctoral positions are being offered in the Climate Change Research Centre at UNSW Sydney.

One position focuses on improving the simulation of climate hazards by regional climate models, how we make regional climate projections, and how we make the results more useful to stakeholders: https://external-careers.jobs.unsw.edu.au/cw/en/job/509313/postdoctoral-research-associate-climate.

The other position focuses on improving our understanding how year-to-year variability in the tropical Pacific and Indian oceans influences Australia’s weather and how projections under greenhouse warming in those ocean basins will affect our future climate: https://external-careers.jobs.unsw.edu.au/cw/en/job/509314/postdoctoral-research-associate-climate.

Post-doctoral Research Associate in Climate Physics

Location: Imperial College London, South Kensington Campus, London, United Kingdom
Application Deadline: 10 July 2022

Applications are invited for a two-year postdoctoral position in Climate Physics at Imperial College London. The project aims to produce novel research on the role of clouds for climate variability and change, using interpretable machine learning approaches. The position will be supervised by Dr Paulo Ceppi and will be based in the Space and Atmospheric Physics Group, Department of Physics. The successful candidate will have (or be close to obtaining) a PhD in an area relevant to climate science or meteorology.


Postdoctoral Fellowship in Kilometer-Scale Modeling

Location: Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM), Montréal, Canada
Application Deadline: None specified

This postdoctoral fellowship in very high-resolution regional climate modeling at the Centre pour l’étude et la simulation du climat à l’échelle régionale (ESCER) at UQAM is part of the “High Resolution Climate Simulation and Analysis” (SACHR) project. SACHR aims to develop the new version of the Canadian Regional Climate Model (CRCM66/GEM5). To this end, a comprehensive assessment of the performance of the model will be conducted by focusing on various aspects of the regional water cycle.

This position will focus on a project aiming to better quantify and understand the improvements introduced by the new version of the model. Studies will be carried out to quantify the added value of i) the higher horizontal/temporal resolution and ii) the greater complexity of the physics parameterizations or the surface model. The assessment of the added value will be based on specific high-impact weather phenomena (e.g., extreme extratropical cyclones) and will use innovative ways to evaluate climate models that go beyond standard approaches.


Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor of Empire Innovation – Boundary Layer Meteorology

Location: Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, NY, U.S.A.

Application Deadline: Position will remain open until filled, with review of applications beginning May 2, 2022

The School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences (SoMAS) at Stony Brook University invites applications for a tenure track Professor of Empire Innovation position in the area of Boundary Layer Meteorology. The incumbent will be responsible for teaching and mentoring at the undergraduate and graduate levels, collaborating with interdisciplinary research and teaching teams, developing curriculum, and performing service to the university and the broader community. Incumbent will be expected to engage in cross-disciplinary collaboration with the University’s Public Health program in environmental epidemiology and community health management (e.g., modeling of particulate matter and reactive gases), and lead efforts which support the planned continuing investment in this new area of SUNY strength and focus.
