Climate Services Postdoctoral Researcher - Climate Central

Opportunity Type: Job

Climate Central is an independent group of scientists and science translators who research and report the facts about our changing climate and how it affects people’s lives. We use science, big data, and tech to generate thousands of storylines and compelling visuals that make climate change relevant and show what can be done about it. We address climate science, sea level rise, extreme weather, energy, and related topics. 

Climate Central is seeking a postdoctoral researcher interested in combining climate knowledge with modern data science to support Climate Central’s goal to deliver accurate, timely, and relevant climate information to a variety of audiences. The primary responsibility will be to develop an operational system to identify weather events that have been strongly influenced by anthropogenic climate change.

The candidate should have an advanced understanding of climate science and familiarity with climate models and projections, as well as significant experience analyzing climate data using modern statistical approaches in R or Python.
