Post Doctorate Research Associate on Climate Modeling
Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL)
Richland, WA, USA 

Job ID: 305757
Full/Part Time: Full-Time
Regular/Temporary: Temporary

Job Description
The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) is recruiting a postdoctoral scientist to conduct innovative research in climate modeling with a focus on the roles of light-absorbing particles in controls on melting of snow and ice. The selected candidate will work on quantifying the radiative impacts of light-absorbing particles and other forcings on the melting of snowpack and glaciers and the consequent effect on hydrological cycles using a regional model coupled with aerosol, radiation, land surface and snow components. The successful candidate will also have the opportunity to work with a team of recognized scientists to use NASA remote sensing retrievals of snow, ice, aerosols, and soil properties to constrain the cutting-edge mesoscale modeling to improve our understanding of the controls on snow and ice melt in High Mountain Asia.

Equal Employment Opportunity
PNNL is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer that is committed to hiring a diverse, talented workforce. EOE Disability/Vet/M/F/Sexual Orientation/Gender Identity. Staff at PNNL must be able to demonstrate the legal right to work in the United States.

Minimum Qualifications
Candidates must have received a PhD within the past five years (60 months) or within the next 8 months from an accredited college or university.

Preferred Qualifications
A Ph.D. degree in Atmospheric Sciences, Meteorology, or related fields is required. 

Candidates with 
(1) experience in regional or global climate modeling of aerosol and/or snow processes, 
(2) fluency in Fortran computer language, and 
(3) experience with Linux/Unix computational environments and parallel programming paradigms on high-performance computers 
are preferred. 

Because visible scientific accomplishments are key to the success of our project team, the candidate must have demonstrated excellent communication and writing 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 the applicant’s research experience and interests, and a curriculum vitae with a list of publications in refereed journals and contact information of three references is required.
