[Met-jobs] postdoc position open in urban microclimatology and hydrology

From Elie Bou-Zeid <>
Date Tue, 25 Sep 2012 19:28:45 -0400

A postdoctoral or more senior research position(s) in hydrometeorological modeling is available in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Princeton University. The prospective researcher will develop improved representations of urban hydrological processes in coupled land-atmosphere models and will perform multi-scale atmospheric modeling to investigate the effects of urbanization and other anthropogenic forcings on the water cycle. Of particular interest are rapidly urbanizing regions in China.  The work will use the Weather Research and Forecasting model for mesoscale and large-eddy simulations, focusing on storms and land-atmosphere exchanges of relevance to the hydrological cycle. The research will be supervised by Professors Jim Smith ( and Elie Bou-Zeid (
Applicants from all academic backgrounds will be considered, but previous experience in atmospheric modeling and/or computational fluid dynamics is strongly desired. A PhD is required.  Interested candidates are encouraged to apply as soon as possible; the position will remain open until filled. All applications should be submitted through the Princeton University jobs site requisition number 1200261.
Please include a CV, a brief statement of research experience and interests, and the names and emails of three references.  This appointment is for one year, and may be renewed pending satisfactory performance and sufficient funding.
Princeton University is an equal opportunity employer and complies with applicable EEO and affirmative action regulations.
