Job Description:

An entry level Scientist I position (equivalent to Assistant Professor) with 12 month base salary support is open in the Climate and Global Dynamics Division at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado. Qualified candidates with expertise in either or both modeling and observational climate variability are encouraged to apply. The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to the CGD mission "To discover the key processes in each component of the Earth's climate system and to understand the interactions among them; to represent this knowledge in community models that effectively utilize computing advances; and to apply these models and observations to scientific problems of societal relevance." To fulfill this mission, CGD encourages and supports a triad of interdependent activities:

  • fundamental research into atmospheric and climate processes
  • application of these models to research the earth's climate system. A Scientist I in CGD has the opportunity to develop an independent research program within the broad guidelines of the CGD strategic plan and to shape future plans. Research can be either collaborative or independent but is expected to take advantage of and contribute to NCAR as a national center. CGD is a center of the Community Earth System Model, and virtually all its activities and resources directly or indirectly support CESM either in the immediate or longer term. An NCAR Scientist I is roughly equivalent to a university tenure track Assistant Professor. Appointment to Scientist II (roughly Associate Professor) is expected sometime within the 5 year Scientist I term, pending a successful review of scientific productivity and innovation, contributions to CGD and NCAR programs, community service, and promise of scientific leadership. The position comes with a share of division administrative, software engineering, and computing support. Additional support may by garnered through competitive grants. Information about NCAR, CGD, the CGD Strategic Plan, and CESM can be found at . Information for Applicants: To apply for this position, visit UCAR Human Resources ( ).
