[Met-jobs] Postdoctoral Researcher in Atmospheric Sciences for Wind Energy at NREL

From "Draxl, Caroline" <>
To "" <>
Date Wed, 27 Dec 2017 18:53:23 +0000

The National Wind Technology Center of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory 
(NREL)  is seeking a post doc to contribute to the wind resource 
characterization research program focused on development and application of new 
resource methodologies and technologies for use by the wind industry. The 
program includes examination of atmospheric processes over a range of scales 
from mesoscale to microscale that influence wind energy systems using both 
computational modeling and field deployed observational systems.

The successful candidate will primarily focus on wind, and will collaborate 
with other NREL staff to carry out research in the following areas:

  *   Development, deployment, and validation of atmospheric observation 
systems including new remote sensing technologies
  *   Research of the next generation models that bridge the mesoscale and 
microscale for estimation of short and long-term energy production.

This post doc is expected to demonstrate a broad understanding and wide 
application of atmospheric principles, theories, and concepts, in particular in 
the area of remote sensing and measurements. A general knowledge of wind energy 
related disciplines and applications is an advantage.
The successful candidate will have excellent writing, interpersonal and 
communication skills. The candidate will be expected to publish results in 
technical journals/conference proceedings and presenting work at conferences, 
symposia, and review meetings.

Required Education, Experience, and Skills
Must be a recent PhD graduate within the last three years.

Preferred Qualifications
The preferred candidate will have:

  *   A strong expertise in atmospheric observational platforms and data 
analysis techniques for tower based instrumentation and remote sensing.
  *   Experience with atmospheric modeling tools such as WRF, and validation 
  *   Familiarity with wind forecasting and energy assessment processes, 
including the data analysis and uncertainty processes.
Candidates with engineering backgrounds but strong knowledge of atmospheric 
science are also encouraged to apply.
