POST-DOC OPENING AT PACIFIC NORTHWEST NATIONAL LABORATORY Job Title: Post Doc Algorithm Development & Analysis for Multi-Resolution Climate Models Job ID: 301465 Location: PNNL - Richland, WA Group/Directorate: Atmospheric Chemistry & Meteorology / Fundamental & Computational Sciences Job Description --------------- PNNL has an immediate opening and seeks a post-doctoral researcher to develop expertise with the new generation of multi-resolution climate models and to apply them to a variety of problems. Example models include MPAS and the HOMME cores in CESM and stand-alone versions. The candidate will work as part of a team tasked with improving the atmospheric physics parameterizations so they operate well within multi-resolution grids. In addition to prior atmospheric modeling experience, a specialization in a particular parameterization type, e.g., clouds or the boundary layer, is highly desirable. 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: * Conduct technical research on reducing scale dependence of climate model parameterizations and document issues arising from their scale dependent behavior * Develop expertise and serve as a point-of-contact for the research team for issues relating to running the multi-resolution model * Publish research and present results in highly visible, peer-reviewed venues (journals and conferences) * Collaborate productively with internal and external scientists Qualifications -------------- * Familiarity with the WRF and/or CESM models, or equivalent * Strong understanding of current cloud parameterization techniques * Demonstrated ability to analyze observations and use them to evaluate and understand model results * Fluent in Fortran, and familiar with an interpreted computer language (Perl, Python, IDL, etc.) * Peer-reviewed publication record in a relevant area * Ability to work independently and to efficiently deliver results * Excellent verbal and written English communication skills 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. 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.
