Heliophysics embraces all science aspects of the Sun-Solar System, and includes many of the basic physical processes that are found in our solar system, the laboratory, and throughout the universe. The goal of this postdoctoral program is to train Sun-Earth system researchers, preference is given to research projects that cross the traditional Heliophysics subdomains of the Sun, heliosphere, magnetosphere, and ionosphere/upper atmosphere, as well as sun-climate investigations.
The objective of the program is to help create the next generation of researchers needed for climate studies. Desired research areas focus on observing, understanding, modeling, and predicting climate variability and change on seasonal and longer time scales. Preference is given to new graduates who are seeking their first fellowship and who have held a PhD for no more than three years.
University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) is seeking to fill a 2 year position at the National Center for Weather and Climate Prediction (NCWCP) within the National Centers for Environmental Prediction’s (NCEP) Environmental Modeling Center (EMC) in College Park Maryland. The successful candidate will work on developing an improved analysis capability for atmospheric conditions (sustained wind, wind gust, pressure and stability) near the surface and in the vicinity of where named tropical cyclones reached landfall along the coasts of the United States.
NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Prediction’s (NCEP) Environmental Modeling Center (EMC) is seeking to fill a 2-year visiting scientist position for work at NOAA's NCEP EMC, located in College Park, MD. The successful candidate will support NCEP’s EMC with the wave modeling development work involved in coupling the spectral wave model WAVEWATCH III with the ADCIRC surge model from the National Ocean Service (NOS).
