Job description

The Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) encourages applications for a Post-Doctoral Associate or a Research Associate (Research Scientist) to perform research aimed at improving our understanding of hydroclimate predictability on S2S time scales, from Week 3 to Month 3. The hire will develop the existing operational NOAA Physical Science Laboratory-Climate Prediction Center (PSL-CPC) linear inverse model (LIM) as a probabilistic and deterministic forecast system focused on CONUS hydroclimate, with a particular focus on California precipitation and soil moisture. They will also use this LIM as the basis for a Weeks 3-12 weekly forecast outlook of hydroclimate-related variables, including those relevant to both fire weather and flash drought outlooks. This Post-Doctoral or Research Associate will also evaluate the predictability of all the relevant environmental conditions, and identify those elements leading to forecasts of opportunity and periods of relatively low and high risk.

We are seeking candidates with excellent technical and communication skills who thrive in a team environment. This is a 2-year position with the possibility of extension based on performance and the availability of funding.


The University of Colorado Boulder is committed to building a culturally diverse community of faculty, staff, and students dedicated to contributing to an inclusive campus environment. We are an Equal Opportunity employer, including veterans and individuals with disabilities.
