WRF-Hydro / U.S. National Water Model postdoc position at U-Albany

The SUNY University at Albany Atmospheric Sciences Research Center (ASRC) is conducting a search for a postdoctoral associate to investigate water and land management (esp. irrigation) influences on sub-seasonal weather predictability in the U.S. The successful candidate will primarily be tasked with setting-up and carrying out coupled WRF-Hydro simulations, but additional WRF single column model (SCM) simulations are planned to better characterize the coupled land-atmosphere pathway through which water and land management practices affect weather.  The planned research will be conducted in coordination with similarly motivated activities organized under the Global Energy and Water Exchanges Project (GEWEX) in response to the World Climate Research Programme’s Water for the Food Baskets of the World Grand Challenge. The successful candidate will have: strong scientific coding skills; advanced knowledge of terrestrial hydrology, land-atmosphere interactions, and boundary layer processes; and advanced proficiency with WRF and/or WRF-Hydro. Additional experience in land data assimilation would be advantageous.

To apply, send your CV and a brief cover letter outlining your interest and qualifications for the position to Dr. Craig R. Ferguson (crferguson@albany.edu). The position will remain open until filled. There is a preferred start date of September 2018 or soon thereafter. To be eligible, applicants must have received their doctoral degree within the past 3-years. Initial appointment is for one year at $50,000/yr with an opportunity for extension pending satisfactory performance.
