Visiting Support/Project Scientist

NOAA Weather and Climate Dynamics Group
Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory
Princeton, NJ

UCAR’s Cooperative Programs for the Advancement of Earth System Science
(CPAESS TM ) is seeking to fill a Visiting Scientist position at the
NOAA Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory in Princeton, New Jersey.

This is an initial two-year position with possibility of a one-year
extension. Initial consideration will be given to applications received
prior to 17 November 2017. Thereafter, applications will be reviewed
until this position is filled. A foreign visa will be supported for the
positions. Partial relocation costs will be provided.

What You Will Do

This position(s) will focus on the continued development of the GFDL AM4
and fvGFS models at convection-resolving (< 4km) scales for nowcast to
S2S scales and beyond. The qualified candidate(s) will have a strong
background in the simulation of mesoscale and convective-scale features:
examples include but are not limited to tropical convection, tropical
cyclones, severe local storms, orographic and coastal phenomena,
boundary-layer motions, or intense rain, wind, ice, or snow events. The
qualified candidate(s) should have substantial experience configuring,
running, and evaluating numerical models (idealized or comprehensive)
for simulating these phenomena.

The responsibilities of the position will include supporting the PI's
and other group members' efforts to:

Design model configurations for simulation and prediction on
convection-resolving scales, including of the FV3 dynamical core and the
GFS and AM4 physics suites.

Prepare weather and climate simulations.

Analyze model output and compare to observations, including the
development of diagnostics for prediction and verification with standard
datasets and new observational products.

Document and present changes to the model and model results.

Design of graphical presentation of results, including figures for our
real-time prediction website.


What You Need

A PhD in Atmospheric Sciences or related field is desirable but not
required.


Problem Solving

Independent decision making is required.

Applies in-depth knowledge of program area to devise creative solutions
to problems. Erroneous decisions or recommendation would normally result
in serious delays to assigned projects or failure to achieve goals
critical to major organizational objectives. This could seriously affect
the image of the organization.

This position is subject to work location requirement for obtaining
access to facilities and research systems. These requirements may
include a combination of national security checks, credit checks,
fingerprinting, or other security clearance requirements.
