Postdoctoral Position in Atmospheric Remote Sensing
Department of Physical and Environmental Sciences
Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi
Corpus Christi, Texas, USA

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in atmospheric remote 
sensing in the Department of Physical and Environmental Sciences at the Texas 
A&M University-Corpus Christi (TAMUCC).
The successful candidate will join an interdisciplinary science team from 
TAMUCC, Purdue University and the University of California - Davis, to develop 
retrieval/simulation algorithm for airborne Global Positioning System (GPS) 
radio occultation measurements. The second phase of the work will be 
collaborating with the modeling group at UC-Davis to evaluate the impact of 
airborne RO measurements in hurricane prediction through data assimilation. The 
candidate will also have opportunity to collaborate with GPS experts at Jet 
Propulsion Laboratory and UCAR.
The candidate should have a recent Ph.D. in atmospheric sciences or a related 
field; have experience with electromagnetic wave propagation and theory of 
optics; and possess excellent quantitative and analytical skills.  Experience 
in spaceborne or ground-based GPS application is desirable but not required. 
Expertise in IDL, FORTRAN, and UNIX/LINUX shell script is also desirable. 
Candidates should also have strong communication (spoken and written) and 
interpersonal skills, and the ability to work independently and as part of a 
team.
The position is available immediately and will remain open until filled. The 
position is for one year, renewable for up to two additional years. The stipend 
is competitive commensurate with the experience.
Interested applicants should send statement of research interests, a curriculum 
vitae and the names and contact information of three references to Dr. Feiqin 
Xie (feiqin.xie@gmail.com<mailto:feiqin.xie@gmail.com> or 
feiqin.xie@tamucc.edu<mailto:fxie@jifresse.ucla.edu> after Aug. 15, 2012).
TAMUCC is a member of the Texas A&M University System. The unique island 
setting campus is located on the beautiful coast of the Gulf of Mexico. TAMUCC 
is an Equal Employment Opportunity Employer.
