Two Postdoctoral research associates in the area of atmospheric convection and climate in the tropics, Florida State University, USA (deadline: 1 March 2024)

The Department of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Science (EOAS) at Florida State University seeks two highly motivated postdoctoral research associates to conduct research in the area of atmospheric convection and climate in the tropics. The successful applicants will contribute to PICCOLO, an NSF-funded project to investigate the nature, governing mechanisms, and impact of mesoscale organization of precipitation deep convective organization in the context of the Atlantic Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ).  Field observations from the ORCESTRA campaign (https://orcestra-campaign.org/intro.html), in particular advanced polarimetric retrievals from the SEA-POL radar (https://seapol.colostate.edu/), and numerical simulations will be used as part of this project.

Position one is on convective organization, supervised by Prof. Allison Wing in EOAS at FSU (https://myweb.fsu.edu/awing/index.html). 

Position two is in moist thermodynamics, co-advised by Prof. Allison Wing in EOAS at FSU (https://myweb.fsu.edu/awing/index.html) and Prof. Morgan O’Neill in the Department of Physics at the University of Toronto (https://storms.physics.utoronto.ca).

Postdoctoral Associate position in multiscale ocean modeling, MIT, USA

Postdoc position in the Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The successful applicant will work with Assistant Professor Abigail Bodner and in collaboration with Oceananigans developers at MIT, leveraging state of the art GPU-based high-resolution simulations to address fundamental open-questions on multiscale upper ocean dynamics. The project will involve running and analyzing the Oceananigans large eddy simulation, resolving scales ranging from 100km down to single meters, and applying theoretical and machine learning approaches to develop new parameterizations for General Circulation Models.
Job Requirements: PhD in geosciences, statistics, physics, engineering, or a related field at the time of the appointment. Strong background in fluid dynamics, turbulence, and/or oceanography preferred. Experience working with numerical simulations, scientific programming, and/or machine learning is an advantage.
Application instructions: please apply online via https://hr.mit.edu/careers (job ID #23637) applicants are asked to send a CV, a brief statement of research interests, and the names of three references to abodner@mit.edu with postdoc job in the subject.
Prospective applicants are welcome to contact me (abodner@mit.edu) with any questions regarding the nature of the research to be conducted.
The initial appointment will be for one year, with the possibility of extension for up to three years. Applications will be considered upon receipt and until the position is filled.
