Berkeley Lab’s Climate & Ecosystems Division has an opening for a Geological Project Scientist. You will work with Prof. Da Yang on climate dynamics, including, but not limited to, convective aggregation, the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ), monsoon, and regional climate variability. The research will include the use of observations and a hierarchy of numerical models, such as super-parameterized GCMs, conventional GCMs, cloud-resolving models (CRMs), and simplified theoretical models. The incumbent will work to advance our current understanding of atmospheric dynamics and to improve climate model simulations.

What You Will Do:

  • Design and perform GCM and CRM simulations for convection and atmospheric circulation.

  • Analyze observations and model outputs to test existing theories of and to develop new hypotheses for convection and its interaction with large-scale circulations.

  • Modify existing convection parameterizations in GCMs to improve simulations of the tropical atmosphere.

  • Author technical reports and peer-reviewed journal articles.

  • Produce and deliver oral and written presentations of scientific results.

  • Work collaboratively in a large multidisciplinary research team.

  • Successfully contribute to an active intellectual environment.

What Is Required:

  • Recent Ph.D. in atmospheric science, fluid dynamics, or a closely related field.

  • Demonstrated ability to tackle important questions with the scientific method and to publish those results.

  • Demonstrated proficiency with one or more programming languages (especially Fortran).

  • Demonstrated proficiency with one or more data analysis softwares (e.g., Matlab and Python).

  • Demonstrated excellent oral and written communications skills for presentation of research.

  • Ability to work effectively in a large and integrated team.

Additional Desired Qualifications:

  • Experience with climate model simulations and development.

  • Experience with cloud-resolving simulations.

The posting shall remain open until the position is filled.

Notes:

  • This is a full time, 1 year, term appointment with the possibility of extension or conversion to Career appointment based upon satisfactory job performance, continuing availability of funds and ongoing operational needs.

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

  • Salary is commensurate with experience.

  • This position may be subject to a background check. Any convictions will be evaluated to determine if they directly relate to the responsibilities and requirements of the position. Having a conviction history will not automatically disqualify an applicant from being considered for employment.

  • Work will be primarily performed at: Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, 1 Cyclotron Road, Berkeley, CA.
