Postdoctoral Associate in land surface and hydrological modeling

Description:

The University of Maryland’s Earth System Science Interdisciplinary
Center (ESSIC)

is recruiting a Postdoctoral Associate to support the NASA-SERVIR
project WALFEHE (A West Africa LDAS for Forecasting Extreme Hydrological
Events).

This project partners with the SERVIR-West Africa hub AGRHYMET to
provide an improved land data assimilation system for integrated water
management with a focus on (1) better understanding the interactions
between the atmosphere and land surfaces, (2) improving

Hydrometeorological modeling to provide meteorological, hydrological,
and agricultural drought characterizations and forecasts, and (2) flood
modeling and forecasting.

The incumbent will conduct land data assimilation research, exploring
the optimal use of

terrestrial remote sensing data with land surface models. Specifically:

* Initial implementation and evaluation of land surface models;
* Implementation and evaluation multivariate data assimilation, using
GRACE, satellite-based soil moisture and radar altimetry;
* NASA GEOS-5 data pre-processing (downscaling and bias-correction)
and forecast experiments using OL and DA.

Qualifications:

* The candidate should have advanced experience in land surface and
hydrological modeling, and model development. Experience with data
assimilation and working with satellite datasets are a plus.

* Proficiency with FORTRAN and UNIX is required.
* PhD in engineering, hydrology, atmospheric science, geophysics, or a
related discipline.
* The individual will be expected to present results in peer-reviewed
publications and scientific presentations, and writing and reviewing
technical reports.
* U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents only
* Work Location: NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, MD

To Apply:

Interested candidates should send a CV with a list of at least 3
professional references and a cover letter explaining how your
qualifications meet the posted requirements to Andrew Negri
