The Center for Climate Systems Research at Columbia University invites applicants for a Postdoctoral Research Scientist position in cloud physics and global atmospheric modeling at its Morningside campus in New York City. Appointment is full-time for a two-year period, with the possibility of extension for a third year contingent upon funding and performance.
The Postdoctoral Research Scientist will work with a group of modelers and observationalists at Columbia University, NASAGISS, and NCAR, to develop a new cloud microphysics parameterization framework and implement it into the Energy Exascale Earth System Model. This work will be performed in collaboration with scientists at Department of Energy supported national labs, and will also implement a new perturbed-parameter ensemble to improve model fidelity and quantify uncertainty. There is flexibility to focus on subtopics such as: 1) process-level inference using observations, 2) machine learning to accelerate Bayesian parameter estimation, 3) climate model ensemble design and analysis, as well as other related applicant interests.
