Postdoctoral Fellowship Position available at the University of Hawaii

The University of Hawaii Sea Level Center (UHSLC) invites applications for a Postdoctoral Fellowship position on the subject of seasonal climate variability and prediction. The successful candidate will work on a NOAA funded project to study seasonal sea level prediction techniques using coupled ocean-atmosphere general circulation models. The project will assess state-of-the-art climate forecast systems as well as utilize simplified numerical modeling experiments to develop new sea level prediction products.

Candidates must have a recent Ph.D. in either physical oceanography, or climate, atmospheric, and related sciences. A keen interest in tropical and/or mid-latitude coupled ocean-atmosphere variability on monthly to interannual timescales is recommended. Demonstrated skill analyzing large datasets from observational and modeling products to diagnose climate variability processes is required. Familiarity with coupled general circulation models is preferred.

The position will be located at the University of Hawaii Manoa campus in Honolulu, HI in collaboration with Professor Mark Merrifield and in close interaction with Drs. Matthew Widlansky, Philip Thompson, and H. Annamalai.

Initial appointment will be for one year, with annual continuation for up to 3 years conditional on performance and funding availability.

Interested candidates should send email describing research interests, a curriculum vitae, and a list of three references (with phone numbers and email addresses) to: Matthew Widlansky <>. The full advertisement is posted here:
Applications received by 30 September 2017 will receive full consideration and the search will continue until the position is filled.

The UHSLC conducts sea level and climate research spanning coastal flood events to global sea level rise and is a part of the Global Sea Level Observing System (GLOSS). To learn more, visit
