Graduate Research Assistantship: Satellite-Radar-Lightning Convective Storms research
The University of Alabama in Huntsville’s (UAH) Atmospheric Science Department is seeking a new Ph.D. student to conduct basic research involving the combined analysis of high-temporal resolution GOES-16 satellite, polarimetric (possibly dual-Doppler) radar and lightning data for new and developing convective clouds and storms. Analysis would focus on convective storm initiation events, and can also involve the use of high-resolution cloud resolving models. Students possessing some or considerable prior experience in processing said datasets, while also possessing past experience and knowledge in numerical weather prediction modeling, are of high interest given the need to quickly progress on his/her doctoral research. The candidate should have a high attention to detail, and demonstrated prior experience in technical writing of documents and/or peer-reviewed papers. Fluent coding skills in languages such as IDL, Matlab, Fortran-90, C++ and/or Python are preferred. This Graduate Research Assistantship (GRA) opportunity is available beginning in the Fall 2018 semester at UAH. Applications to the email address of Prof. John R. Mecikalski ( will be accepted through 31 May 2018.
