Postdoctoral Researcher - The Center at Lawrence Berkeley National Laborator
The Center at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory for Integrative Modeling of the Earth System (CLIMES) has an exciting opportunity for a postdoctoral researcher to evaluate the hydrological components of an integrated Earth System Model (iESM) in preparation for coupling with a water-sector economic model. The iESM is a novel integration of comprehensive community models for the energy-sector and the global climate. The primary goal is to characterize the hydrological impacts of changing land use and conditions in the context of projected changes in climate and energy/water demands. The postdoc would join a rapidly expanding team at LBNL conducting innovative research in abrupt and extreme climate change, ice-sheet simulation, carbon and methane cycle measurement and modeling, integrated assessment, and advanced numerical methods for climate dynamics. Tasks include historical validation, sensitivity analyses, calibration, and experiments to evaluate hydrological impacts of new components and projected climate, land use, and energy demand. The individual will work closely with earth system and integrated assessment scientists at LBNL and other DOE National Laboratories.
