Postdoctoral Fellow

Drs. Emily Riley Dellaripa, Eric Maloney, and Charlotte DeMott seek a postdoc to conduct research to improve our understanding of how the frequency and amplitude of westerly wind events in the tropics affect the equatorial ocean as a function of ocean background state, and how these interactions may evolve in the future.

Job description

Desired start date: as early as 3 January 2023

Drs. Emily Riley Dellaripa, Eric Maloney, and Charlotte DeMott seek a postdoc to conduct research to improve our understanding of how the frequency and amplitude of westerly wind events in the tropics affect the equatorial ocean as a function of ocean background state, and how these interactions may evolve in the future. The successful candidate will develop new diagnostics to characterize these feedbacks, apply the diagnostics to observations and model output, and integrate the diagnostics into the NOAA MAPP Model Diagnostics package. We seek candidates who: are trained in atmospheric science, oceanography, or math and physics with related subject matter experience; have strong computing skills, especially Python and GitHub; a desire to incorporate their own research interests related to tropical ocean-atmosphere coupled processes; and are enthusiastic to share their findings with the oceanographic and atmospheric science communities. Questions may be directed to:   Emily.Riley@colostate.edu, Eric.Maloney@colostate.edu, or Charlotte.DeMott@Colostate.edu.
