[Met-jobs] postdoc position open in boundary-layer meteorology

From Elie BOU-ZEID <>
Date Sat, 22 Oct 2016 12:14:33 -0400

A postdoctoral or more senior research position in Boundary Layer Meteorology is available in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Princeton University. The prospective researcher will mainly focus on the influence of baroclinicity, which arises when strong horizontal temperature gradients are present, on the dynamics of the atmospheric boundary layer (ABL). Baroclinic ABLs remain poorly understood despite their importance to atmospheric dynamics near coastal regions and fronts, and in various other settings. The postdoctoral research associate
will also address other open questions related to turbulence and buoyancy in the ABL. The work will rely on a combination of large eddy simulations and field data analysis; experience with one or both is thus advantageous. The research will be supervised by Professor Elie Bou-Zeid (

Interested candidates are encouraged to apply as soon as possible. The anticipated start date is February, 2017, but the position will remain open until filled. Questions about the scope of the work can be addressed to, but applications sent by email CANNOT be considered. Applicants must apply online through the Princeton University jobs website: and submit a cover letter, CV, a brief (~ 1-2 pages) statement of research experience and interests, and the names and emails of three references.

This appointment is for one year, and may be renewed pending satisfactory performance and sufficient funding. This position is subject to the University's background check policy.

Princeton University is an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
