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 <pkklein@ou.edu> 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.
