POST-DOC OPENING AT PACIFIC NORTHWEST NATIONAL LABORATORY Job Title: Post Doctorate RA - Scale-Adaptive Parameterization Development for Climate Models Job ID: 300774 Location: Pacific Northwest National Laboratories - Richland, WA Directorate: Fundamental & Computational Sciences Group: Atmospheric Chemistry & Meteorology Job Description --------------- The Atmospheric Chemistry and Meteorology Group of the Atmospheric Sciences and Global Change Division seeks a Post Doctoral Researcher to actively participate in research involving the investigation and development of scale-aware parameterizations for climate models. The position will target the improvement of parameterizations for next-generation climate models with multi-resolution domains. Work will focus on evaluating scale dependency of current parameterization techniques and also on the development of new techniques that will enable parameterizations to function across a range of model grid spacings. Experience with regional and global models, along with cloud parameterizations and the interplay between parameterizations is desired. The PNNL group interacts with other leading climate science activities nationally and internationally and this position can lead to high visibility and leadership in the research community. The successful candidate will be expected to: * Conduct technical research on reducing scale dependence of model parameterizations * Publish research results in highly visible, peer-reviewed venues (conferences & journals) * Interact with internal and external research staff and domain scientists for collaboration purposes * Participate and make presentations on the work * Participate in team meetings, and potentially interact with funding clients Minimum Requirements -------------------- Candidates must have received a PhD within the past five years from an accredited college or university. All staff at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory must be able to demonstrate the legal right to work in the United States. Qualifications -------------- * Familiarity with the WRF and/or CESM models, or equivalent, ideally for applications ranging across scales * Strong understanding of current climate model parameterization techniques * Demonstrated ability to analyze observations and use them to evaluate and understand model results * Fluency in modern Fortran required, and at least a working familiarity with an interpreted computer language (Perl, Python, IDL, etc.) * Peer-reviewed publication record in a relevant area highly desired * Ability to work independently and to efficiently deliver results * Excellent verbal and written English communication skills Equal Employment Opportunity ---------------------------- Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) is an Affirmative Action / Equal Opportunity Employer and supports diversity in the workplace. All employment decisions are made without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, veteran status, marital or family status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or genetic information.
