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 aspects of wind climates of relevance to wind
energy, (ii) assess causes of intra-annual to intra-decadal variability
in wind climates and (ii) diagnose where and how wind conditions may
change over time. This project is a collaboration between professors at
Cornell University, scientists at a national laboratory (PNNL) and in
private industry, and the selected applicant will have the opportunity
to work closely with all three partners.

The selected applicant will lead the numerical modeling using WRF and a
global variable resolution model, and must hold a Ph.D. in atmospheric
science, engineering or related subject. Experience with WRF is highly
desirable, familiarity with wind engineering or atmospheric modeling
using variable resolution models is desirable and familiarity with
high-performance computing and programming in Fortran and Matlab is


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


Salary will be commensurate with experience.
