Post Doctoral Fellowship In Aerosol Forcing of Climate at Cornell University

Dept. of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences
Cornell University
Ithaca, NY

Applications are sought for a Post Doc to participate in a project designed to 
(i) quantify the scales of coherence of different aerosol properties over the 
contiguous US, (ii) quantify the scales, intensity and causes of extreme 
aerosol events over the contiguous US and (iii) document changes in event 
frequency and/or characteristics over time.

The selected applicant will lead the numerical modeling using WRF-Chem and 
participate in statistical analyses of reanalysis and remote sensing data. The 
successful applicant will hold a Ph.D. in atmospheric science, engineering or 
related subject. Experience with aerosol research and WRF-Chem is highly 
desirable, familiarity with geospatial analysis of large data sets, and 
programming in Fortran and Matlab is desirable.

The preferred start date is 1 September 2016 and the initial appointment will 
be for 1 year with the possibility of renewal.

Salary will be commensurate with experience.

For full consideration, please send a letter of application, a current 
curriculum vitae, and the names and contact information of three references to: 
Professor S.C. Pryor (

Applications will be processed until position is filled but those received by 1 
August 2016 will receive full consideration. Cornell University is an Equal 
Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer and we strongly encourage 
applications from women and minorities.

Specific responsibilities (and approximate effort allocation) include:

(50%)  Conduct simulations with WRF-Chem over North America.

(25%)  Conduct model performance analyses using remote sensing observations and 
reanalysis products

(5%) Archive model output and remote sensing data using best-practice data 
provenance procedures

(15%) Develop publication-quality research manuscripts

(5%) Other research activities.
