The Climate Dynamics Lab at Duke University is seeking a postdoctoral scholar to work on coupled climate dynamics. The main goal of the project is to understand the role of air-sea coupling in global climate change and variability by combining theory, observations, and climate modeling. The topics of the project are flexible and include, for example, global warming pattern formation, ocean inter-basin teleconnection, El Nino dynamics, and paleoclimate. A PhD in physical oceanography, atmospheric science, or related fields is required. Experience with climate modeling (e.g., CESM or similar GCMs) is highly desirable. The position will be awarded for one year with a flexible starting date and extended by one or two more years contingent on satisfactory performance.

Please apply at with a CV, a research statement, and contact information for three references. For questions, please contact Prof. Shineng Hu at Applications will be reviewed starting on November 1, 2021, but the position will remain open until filled. Shortlisted candidates will be contacted to discuss further the details of the project.
