Jobs, MS & Ph.D. Positions, Fellowships

Portland State University is hiring a postdoctoral scholar in weather and climate science

The postdoc will be supervised by Dr. Paul Loikith and join the Portland State Climate Science Lab. The position is initially for two years, with a possible extension. The postdoc will contribute to research on evaluating the skill with which climate models simulate precipitation extremes with the proper driving meteorological mechanisms over the Contiguous United States (mechanisms include atmospheric rivers, tropical cyclones, mesoscale convective systems, etc.). Research will entail developing automated meteorological mechanism identification software, building a robust observations-based climatology of key driving mechanisms of extreme precipitation, and using this climatology as a target for a multi-model evaluation. The postdoc will also be responsible for documenting and publishing code developed to carry out the analysis.
