POST-DOC OPENING AT PACIFIC NORTHWEST NATIONAL LABORATORY Job Title: Post Doc - Boundary Layer Parameterization Development for Climate Models Job ID: 301467 Location: PNNL - Richland, WA Group/Directorate: Atmospheric Chemistry & Meteorology / Fundamental & Computational Sciences Job Description --------------- PNNL has an immediate opening for a post-doctoral researcher who, in conjunction with other team members, will develop improved boundary layer parameterizations for climate models, with a specific focus on improving the behavior of the parameterization across model scales. Interactions of the boundary layer with clouds will also be an area of focus. Analysis will be done using regional and global climate models, with the target of developing a functional parameterization suite for multi-resolution climate models. 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 boundary layer parameterizations within the full parameterization suite * 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 boundary layer 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.
