Postdoctoral Associate, Climate Modeling Alliance (CliMA)
POSTDOCTORAL SCHOLAR, Earth Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences, to join the Climate Modeling Alliance (CliMA), a multidisciplinary team of scientists, engineers, and applied mathematicians spanning MIT, Caltech, and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Will collaborate with the MIT team to develop the ocean component of a new climate model in the Julia programming language that is flexible, easy to use, and runs on laptops, supercomputers, and GPUs. The ways that the postdoctoral scholar could contribute include the implementation of novel numerical methods for climate modeling, the development of parameterizations of subgrid-scale processes leveraging data assimilation and machine learning approaches, and innovative computational studies of ocean processes controlling key climate features that leverage the unique capabilities of the CliMA model.
REQUIRED: Ph.D. in atmospheric or oceanic sciences, fluid dynamics, applied mathematics, mechanical engineering, or a related field by the date of hire; background in ocean and/or climate dynamics; experience in computational fluid dynamics, software engineering, ocean modeling, and computer science; and effective written and verbal communication skills.
Additional information about the position is available from professors Raffaele Ferrari and John Marshall at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is a one-year appointment with the possibility of extension.
In addition to applying with a CV and cover letter via the MIT website, applicants are asked to submit the following through Academic Jobs Online at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/22116: CV, one-page statement of research interests, and three letters of recommendation.
