Position Description:    

The Hu Climate Dynamics Lab at Duke University is seeking 1 postdoctoral associate to work on coupled climate dynamics. The main goal of the Hu lab is to understand the role of air-sea coupling in global climate change and variability by combining theory, observations, and climate modeling. In this position, the postdoctoral associate will explore the physical processes underlying extratropical air-sea interactions related to climate/weather extremes (e.g., marine heatwaves, atmospheric rivers, etc.).

TERM: This position will be awarded for 1 year and extended by 1 more year contingent on satisfactory performance. There is also a possibility of renewal for a third year.

QUALIFICATIONS: A PhD in climate dynamics, physical oceanography, or atmospheric science is required. Modeling experience with general circulation models, preferably CESM, is highly desirable.

PROJECTED START DATE: Fall 2024.
