Post-Doc Research Associate
RENCI - UNC-Chapel Hill
Chapel Hill, NC
DescriptionThe Renaissance Computing Institute at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill seeks to fill one postdoctoral opening for a NOAA-funded project that will develop statistical and other approaches to project coastal storm surge assessments into future current climate scenarios. The successful candidate will be expected to conduct simulations on high-performance computers, develop new and modify existing input datasets, and develop approaches for projecting current climate assessments for storm surge into future climate scenarios. The postdoctoral associate will write technical reports and scientific papers to present research results and assist in developing proposals for external funding. The position is renewed on an annual basis, for a minimum of 2 years, based on satisfactory performance.
RequirementsMinimum: Candidates must have a doctoral degree from an accredited institution in physical oceanography, climate science, or a related science or engineering discipline. Required: Must have an interest in coastal hazards and risk, numerical modeling and methods, and data analysis. A successful candidate will have: (1) a strong quantitative and analytic background, (2) strong programming skills in Fortran and Python or Matlab, and (3) effective communication skills with an ability to work within a multi-disciplinary research team. Preferred: Knowledge and experience with numerical modeling applications with the ADCIRC storm surge and wind-wave model is preferred.
