The Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Program at Princeton University, in association with NOAA’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL), seeks a postdoctoral or a more senior scientist to conduct frontier studies on the predictability and genesis mechanisms of severe convective storms over the continental Unites States using available satellite and radar observations to validate a newly-developed global cloud-resolving model (supported by the Next Generation Global Prediction System project) with two-way global-to-regional nested grid capability, with the ultimate goal of transitioning the prediction capability into operational forecasting.
The selected candidate will have a Ph.D. in meteorology, atmospheric sciences, or a related field. The candidates should have substantial backgrounds in observations, theory, and/or modeling in tropical meteorology (e.g., tropical cyclones), convective-scale storms (e.g., supercell thunderstorms and derechoes), and associated analysis skill, to develop tools to aid model developers in building a next generation multi-scale prediction system for high-impact weather events.
The positions are for one year renewable for up to three years pending satisfactory progress and continued funding. The positions are subject to Princeton University’s background check policy.
Applicants must apply online and submit a CV, publication list, contact information for at least 3 references, and a one-to-two page statement of research interests should be submitted to https://www.princeton.edu/acad-positions/position/1261. For additional information contact Shian-Jiann Lin ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) and/or Lucas Harris ( email@example.com ).

Postdoc in Radiative Transfer and Climate Dynamics - Program in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences (AOS) at Princeton University
The atmospheric sciences group (Prof. Fueglistaler) seeks an outstanding postdoctoral or more senior researcher to work on the role of the distribution of radiatively active species for the atmospheric general circulation. The candidate will enjoy a great degree of freedom, and specific projects will be developed based on the candidate’s interests and strengths.
Candidates must have received a Ph.D. in physical sciences or mathematics. Ideally, candidates will have a very strong background in radiative transfer, but candidates with the self-motivation and necessary background in mathematics and/or physics will be given full consideration. The position requires the ability and interest to work across disciplines, and the proven ability to work independently. The term of the appointment is for one year with the possibility of renewal based on satisfactory performance and continued funding.
Applicants are asked to submit a vitae, a brief statement of research experience and interests, and names of 2-3 references to http://jobs.princeton.edu , Requisition #1600720. Review of applications is immediate and will continue until the positions are filled.
These positions are subject to the University’s background check policy.
