The Old Dominion University (ODU) Research Foundation in Norfolk, Virginia is seeking applications for a Post-Doctoral Research Associate to join an NSF-funded project to explore North Atlantic tropical cyclone (TC) activity over the last millennium by combining sediment paleoclimate proxies and models.
Description
The position is supported for up to two years, pending satisfactory progress during the first year, and covers an annual stipend of $50,000 with a benefits package. Applicants may contact Dr. Lizzie Wallace (ejwallac@odu.edu) for more information.
Tasks
The postdoc will develop methods to integrate TC models with existing paleohurricane proxies to improve understanding of how TCs respond to natural climate variability/external forcing factors on multi-decadal to centennial timescales. The successful candidate will work directly with Dr. Lizzie Wallace at the Department of Ocean and Earth Sciences at ODU and collaborate with the whole project team including Drs. Sylvia Dee (Rice University), Gabriel Vecchi (Princeton University) and Kerry Emanuel (MIT).
