Research Scientist in WRF soil moisture data assimilation

The SUNY University at Albany Atmospheric Sciences Research Center invites applications for a research scientist position in Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) soil moisture data assimilation. The planned weather- and climate-relevant research will involve extensive numerical weather forecast model (WRF) evaluation and code modification to implement satellite data assimilation of NASA Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) soil moisture retrievals. The successful candidate will: conduct WRFand NASA Land Information System (LIS) simulations; carry out data analysis and visualization using Python, NCL or similar scripting language; and design and write creative and innovative peer-reviewed journal articles on soil moisture data assimilation and WRF configuration sensitivity in the context of short-term (9-30 h) weather (incl. wind) predictability over the U.S.


A starting date of January 31, 2017 or earlier is preferred. The initial appointment is expected to be for one year and is renewable pending performance and availability of funds. Salary is approximately $60,000 per year. Limited funding will be made available for travel to conferences and meetings. Applications must be submitted online and should include a statement of research experience and interest, a current CV, and names and contact information (address, email, and telephone) for three professional references. Applications will be reviewed as they are received. For priority consideration, applications should be submitted by October 1, 2016.
