The Atmospheric Sciences and Global Change Division at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) is seeking two early-career scientist positions:


308429 Earth Scientist, Watershed Modeling and Analysis 

Analyze and model watershed-scale hydrologic and biogeochemical processes associated with river-groundwater exchange. Expertise in one or more of the following areas is required: watershed hydrology, watershed biogeochemistry, and model-data integration. Successful candidates will work with a multi-disciplinary team of computational and experimental scientists focused on understanding coupled hydrologic and biogeochemical processes in a large dynamic river corridor. Required attributes include demonstrable motivation to publish in the best topical peer-reviewed journals, a growing record of peer-reviewed publications, and excellent communication and collaboration skills.


308433 Research Scientist - Boundary Layers and Lidar 

Interested in developing new scientific insights into complex terrain and marine atmospheric boundary layers for applications to wind energy. You will be expected to work as part of a team of scientists investigating boundary layer structure and dynamics that drive wind and turbulence fields encountered by wind turbines. Specifically, you will be expected to understand and manipulate profiling and scanning Doppler lidar data from the system spectral level to derived quantities such as wind fields. You will also be expected to incorporate lidar data into more general analyses of the boundary layer data including the structure of turbulence using data from eddy correlation systems, the surface energy balance and other land–surface or air-sea interactions, and the validation of new parameterizations for mesoscale and microscale atmospheric models.

An ability to understand lidars at the system level is critical as is a solid understanding of atmospheric turbulence and boundary layer meteorology. Experience in using mesoscale and microscale models such as WRF and WRF-LES is desirable as is demonstrated experience in carrying out research in complex terrain or over the ocean. In collaboration with others on the team, you may also contribute to the development of new theoretical concepts and parameterizations for the boundary layer, including the impacts of clouds and atmosphere-surface interactions.

Best regards,
