Postdoctoral Fellowship Position at the University of Hawaii

(From Matthew Widlansky)

The University of Hawaii Sea Level Center (UHSLC) invites applications for a Postdoctoral Fellowship appointment which focuses on the subject of future climate change projections. In collaboration with Drs. Matthew Widlansky and H. Annamalai, the successful candidate will participate on a NOAA funded project to study changing sea levels and extreme rainfall events using coupled ocean-atmosphere general circulation models. The project will assess state-of-the-art climate projections (CMIP6), as well as utilize sea level and rainfall observational datasets, to determine coastal flood risks in the tropical Pacific islands

Candidates must have a recent Ph.D. in either physical oceanography, or climate, atmospheric, and related sciences. A keen interest in tropical coupled ocean-atmosphere variability on monthly to interannual timescales is recommended. Demonstrated skill analyzing large datasets from observational and modeling products to diagnose climate variability processes is required. Familiarity with coupled general circulation models (e.g., CMIP5) is preferred.

Initial appointment will be for one year, with annual continuation for up to two years total conditional on performance and funding availability.

Interested candidates should send email describing research interests, a curriculum vitae, and a list of three references with contact information to: Matthew Widlansky,

Applications received by 28 October 2019 will receive full consideration and the search will continue until the position is filled.
