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

* Familiarity with the WRF and/or CESM models, or equivalent
* Strong understanding of current boundary layer parameterization
* 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.
