Job Description 

The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) seeks a postdoctoral researcher for research related to regional and global modeling with a focus on aerosol processes and their interaction with clouds. The selected candidate is expected to participate in the development of a framework for an aerosol subgrid variability scheme to reduce scale-induced uncertainty in simulating aerosols and their radiative forcing in GCMs. The successful candidate will also have the opportunity to work with a group of recognized scientists to quantify the uncertainty and sensitivity in aerosol-cloud interactions in climate model.


Minimum Requirements 

Candidates must have received a PhD within the past five years from an accredited college or university.



A PhD in Atmospheric Sciences, Meteorology, or related fields is required. Candidates with experience in (1) regional or global climate modeling; (2) aerosol microphysical processes; (3) fluency in FORTRAN; and (4) fluency with LINUX operating system and parallel programming paradigms on high-performance computers are strongly preferred. Because visible scientific accomplishments are key to the success of our project team, the candidate must have demonstrated excellent communication skills as evidenced by publications in peer-reviewed journals and presentations at professional conferences. Proactive and timely publication is an essential requirement. A cover letter describing applicants’ research experience and interests, and a curriculum vitae with a list of publications in referenced journals is required.
