The Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES)
in Boulder, Colorado is seeking a Postdoctoral Scientist to work at the
NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory (ESRL) with its Physical Sciences
Division (PSD) Atmospheric and Oceanic Processes team.

The chosen candidate is expected to work with scientists at both PSD and
the National Weather Service’s Climate Prediction Center (CPC) to
develop and apply empirical dynamical models that may be used both for
operational subseasonal predictions and to investigate questions of
subseasonal predictability. A candidate should have strong mathematics
and programming abilities, have excellent communication skills and be
very comfortable working in a team environment.

This position will be located in Boulder, Colorado, with an office at
the NOAA Earth System Research Lab (ESRL), Physical Sciences Division (PSD).

• Demonstrated experience (1 to 2 years experience obtained through
academic training) building and running dynamical and predictive
computer models, either physical or empirical.
• Experience (1 to 2 years experience obtained through academic
training) with either weather-climate prediction systems, large-scale
climate dynamics, dynamical systems theory, and/or statistical and
machine learning techniques.
• Experience (1 to 2 years experience obtained through academic
training) developing structured code in commonly used languages, which
might include Fortran90, C, Python, R, and/or UNIX scripting.
• Fluency in writing and speaking English, and exceptional communication
