change and earth system science. Examples of relevant research areas
include but are not limited to:

- The global carbon cycle, including connections to the deep Earth,
weathering, and carbon sequestration;
- Paleoclimatology, isotope or organic geochemistry, and other
studies of environmental change records;
- Studies of earth materials and elements related to climate and the
evolution of life; and
- Earth science studies of modern environmental change.

Candidates must have earned a PhD at the time of appointment and are
expected to present evidence of excellence in research and teaching.

Applications for this position should include a letter of application,
curriculum vitae, up to three representative publications, statement of
teaching and research interests, and contact information for three

2. NCAR seeks Postdoctoral Research Fellow
Climate Dynamics
Boulder, Colorado

The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) seeks a postdoctoral
research fellow for the project "The Seasonal Atmospheric Circulation
and Climate Response to Arctic Sea Ice Loss: Mechanisms and Robustness
across Models" in the Earth System Laboratory and Climate and Global
Dynamics Division. The appointment is for two years with a possible
extension to three years and is based in Boulder, Colorado.

The successful candidate will conduct research on the seasonal
atmospheric and climate response to arctic sea ice loss within the
context of anthropogenic climate change using observations and models.
Efforts will focus on the role of stratosphere-troposphere coupling and
ocean feedbacks.

A PhD in atmospheric or related sciences is required. Candidates with a
strong background in large-scale atmospheric/climate dynamics, including
atmosphere-ocean interaction and troposphere-stratosphere coupling, are
encouraged to apply. Expertise in statistical analysis, working with
large datasets, and modeling experience is desirable.

Applications should be submitted online and include a curriculum vitae,
brief statement of research interests, names of three references, and
reference Job Posting 12195.
