  • Financial and Research Project Manager - Level I or II
    Full details Position Summary
    The Department of Atmospheric Science is looking to hire two Research Project Managers, one at an entry level and one at an intermediate level. This position provides day-to-day financial management of scientific research portfolios; working alongside department faculty and senior research scientists to coordinate multiple research projects and ensure successful on-time and on-budget project completion. Research Project Managers (RPMs) are an integral part of our research groups. They actively participate in the financial management of the group and coordination of research projects with the PI from proposal preparation to award closeout.

    While not participating directly in the research projects, this position plays a leading role in the preparation and submission of scientific proposals to external sponsors that include federal, state, and local government agencies, industry, and foundations. Organization, attention to detail, critical thinking, strong and concise writing ability, and a willingness to learn and grow are key to success in this position. This position works with individuals and teams of faculty, research staff, university administrations, sponsors and scientific collaborators in the US and abroad, requiring excellent interpersonal skills and a willingness to collaborate.

    The individual in this position must demonstrate commitment to a quality work product and environment. Aspects of this position will require independent work in addition to the team collaboration, so an individual who is proactive, a self-starter and able to prioritize and balance competing tasks is a well-suited candidate for this role.
    The individual in this position should be capable of coordinating expenditure planning for a complex portfolio of research projects and institutional funds in partnership with the PI, forecasting and recommending appropriate solutions for any funding shortfalls with respect to support of scientific staff, consumables, scientific equipment, or project travel.

    The individual in this position does not typically execute financial transactions. Their role is to review, and approve or decline, requests for project-related expenditures, in line with University and Federal guidelines and consultation with the project principal investigator (PI), as needed.

    The individual in this position will be supervised directly by the Senior Research Project Manager.

    The department is willing to offer one day of working remotely after a sixty-day probationary period. Remote work would require the employee to complete a teleworking agreement.
  • Mesoscale Climate Post Doctoral Researcher
    Full details Position Summary
    The postdoctoral scientist will be working with the Hurrell and Rasmussen research teams to conduct independent and collaborative research in the exciting and new interdisciplinary area of how climate variability and change influence mesoscale weather systems.
