Forwarded from CLIMLIST... Vacancy: Postdoctoral fellow in Urban-Scale Weather and Air Quality Modeling We are seeking a highly-motivated individual to join our research team at the University of Oklahoma. The fellow’s research will focus on developing coupled numerical modeling capabilities and applying them to urban-scale weather and air quality simulations and predictions. The model results will be verified against observations. The successful applicant will be mentored by Dr. Petra Klein (Associate Professor, School of Meteorology) and Dr. Ming Xue (Director, Center for Analysis and Prediction of Storms, CAPS) who together have extensive experience in urban meteorology and atmospheric modeling. The fellow is expected to enhance state-of-the-science mesoscale models such as the ARPS and WRF, for them to better represent the physics and dynamics in urban environments. The primary study domain will initially be in the southern Great Plains of the United States, including the metropolitan areas of Dallas-Fort Worth and Oklahoma City. The position is initially funded by the University of Oklahoma for 3 years. We expect the successful candidate to become a productive member of our research team that will be active in the preparation of publications, presentations for conferences, and in the organization of seminars and scientific events. Participation in scientific proposals is also encouraged. Qualifications: A Ph.D. in Meteorology, Atmospheric Sciences or related discipline. Demonstrated experience in atmospheric modeling, ideally at urban scales and/or of land surface/boundary layer processes, is expected. Strong computational, programming and data analysis skills and ability to work with and modify complex modeling systems are highly desirable. Candidates with established publication record in per-reviewed journals are preferred. Successful applicants will also demonstrate the ability to work independently and to mentor undergraduate and graduate research assistants. The position will be co-hosted by the School of Meteorology (<http://som.ou.edu>) and the Center for Analysis and Prediction of Storms (<http://www.caps.ou.edu>), at the University of Oklahoma. Salary will commensurate with experience up to a maximum of $50K/year. Full benefits will be included. The University of Oklahoma is an Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunity Employer. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply. Apply electronically by sending a cover letter describing your research interests and motivation, a full CV, pdf(s) of relevant publications and the names of 3 references (with phone numbers and email addresses). Applications should be sent to Petra Klein <firstname.lastname@example.org> using the phrase Postdoctoral fellow application and the applicants name in the subject line of the email. Application Deadline: Review of applications will begin on March 1, 2011 and may continue until the position if filled.
