Opportunity for Postdoctoral Position in Atmospheric Physics Applied to 
The Center for Weather Forecast and Climate Studies (CPTEC) of the National 
Institute for Space Research (INPE) is seeking a Postdoc to work on nowcasting 
research combining modeling and observation. The main challenger is to develop 
research in nowcasting of intense thunderstorms, understanding the evolution of 
the cloud microphysics properties to improve forecast skill of intense 
precipitation events. The activities of the researcher are part the FAPESP 
Thematic Project 2015/14497-0.
The research project has among its aims the radar assimilation in numerical 
models to improve skill of precipitation forecast in the range of 0 to 6 hours 
and the study of microphysical process using dual pol radar.
The candidate should have a Ph.D. in Atmospheric Sciences. It is desirable to 
have experience with cloud resolving models and radar observation. Skills on 
Fortran or any other language programming is also desirable. The Postdoc will 
be responsible for radar data assimilation and the development of severe storm 
conceptual models combining observations from dual polarization radar and 
satellite with numerical models. Information about the project please access 
the URL –
Interested candidates should send a letter of intent together with a CV to Dr. 
Luiz A T Machado, e-mail:<>
We will accept candidates until July 10, 2016.
The contract is for 1 year, with possibility of renewal upon performance for 1 
more years, with an income of a FAPESP Post-Doc scholarship at the value of R$ 
6.819,30 monthly, and a travel grant equivalent to 15% of the annual value of 
the scholarship. FAPESP can also cover an “installation” expenses with air 
ticket and a fee for initial setup in Brazil. Rules of the program can be found
