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 thereof. * 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.
