Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory’s (LBNL) Climate & Ecosystems Division has an opening for a Career Earth Scientist to join the team. 


You will serve as a key researcher in and Technical Co-Manager of the CASCADE (Calibrated and Systematic Characterization, Attribution, and Detection of Extremes) SFA (Scientific Focus Area).  You will also help lead the Climate and Atmospheric Process program domain in CESD (the Climate and Ecological Sciences Division) and will extend this leadership as a member of the CESD Division Council. You will work with the Area leadership and strategic-plan leads to develop the Area’s Grand Challenge in Resilient Systems. 

 

The scientist will develop a vibrant and internationally-leading research agenda focused on:

  • Detection and attribution of climate change.

  • Climate change projections and their uncertainty.

  • Climate extremes, indices of climate extremes, and statistical extreme value analysis.

  • Statistical characterization of climate models and observations, Bayesian probabilistic projections, and climate model emulators.

  • Impacts of climate change through empirical models.

 

What You Will Do:

  • Conduct research on the statistical characterization, detection, and attribution of climate extremes, analysis of multi-model ensembles of climate experiments; and emulators and statistical models of climate change.

  • Co-lead the CASCADE (Calibrated and Systematic Characterization, Attribution, and Detection of Extremes) SFA (Scientific Focus Area) as its TCM (Technical Co-Manager).

  • Serve as the program-domain leader for climate and atmospheric processes for CESD (LBNL’s Climate and Ecosystem Sciences Division).

  • Produce consistent and high level of publications in peer-reviewed and high impact journals. Research may lead to patents, development of new codes.

  • Present findings at major conferences and workshops; may lead or organize conferences, and workshops.

  • Collaborate with and/or lead others in groups and forge/lead collaborations across the division, Area, Lab and/or with external institutions.

  • Serve as project or group leader, be assisted by other scientists and engineers and support staff, have principal investigator status, and directly supervise other professionals, technical support staff, or students.

  • Prepare and present proposals and communicate directly with the funding agency. May participate on larger grants to grow new areas, programs or departments.

  • Oversee project budgets, project planning, proposal preparation, and program development.

  • Prepare reports, proposals, review documents, and presentations for sponsors.

 

What Is Required:

  • Ph.D. (or equivalent work experience) and 10+ years of experience in atmospheric science, statistics applied to climate, physics, or related fields.

  • Substantial research experience in the analysis of climate change, climate change projections and climate extremes as well as in applications of statistical extreme value analysis and uncertainty quantification.

  • Demonstrated ability to develop and lead an independent research program.

  • Demonstrated record of innovation, impact, and originality.

  • Track record of scientific publication in high-quality journals.

  • Demonstrated ability to establish collaborations and interact with members of scientific groups.

  • Demonstrated ability to write grant proposals and attract support from funding agencies.

  • Demonstrated ability to conduct independent research.

  • Record of successful mentorship and supervision.

  • Excellent oral and written skills.

 

Requested Application Materials:

  • Curriculum Vitae and publication list.

  • Statement of research experience and interests.

  • List of five references. Names and contact information for at least five references (at least four external to the Lab and UCBerkeley and at least one from outside of the U.S.).

 

The posting shall remain open until the position is filled.

 

Notes: 

  • This is a full time career appointment.

  • Full-time, M-F, exempt (monthly paid) from overtime pay.
