[Met-jobs] Postdoctoral position in boundary layer meteorology at BU

From Dan Li <>
Date Wed, 24 Jul 2019 18:07:27 -0400

The Environmental Fluid Mechanics group ( in the Department of Earth and Environment at Boston University is seeking a postdoctoral candidate interested in boundary layer meteorology. Using a combination of data analysis and numerical simulations (e.g., large-eddy simulations), the successful candidate will lead research on 1) understanding the variabilities of boundary layer depth and implications for air quality over the Continental United States, and/or 2) quantifying dispersive fluxes over heterogeneous landscapes and implications for numerical weather predictions. 


Candidates with previous experience with boundary layer processes and experience with high-performance computing in Unix based operating systems and scientific computing languages (e.g., Matlab, Python) are preferred, but highly motivated graduates with background in meteorology and climatology, hydrology, geography, and earth sciences are encouraged to apply. A Ph.D. degree is required by the time of appointment.


The successful candidate will benefit from close collaborations with University of Buffalo, Washington State University, Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL), and NASA. The successful candidate will also benefit from an outstanding research environment at Boston University. In particular, the Department of Earth and Environment at Boston University has strong strengths in areas of land-use/land-cover change and coupled natural and human dimensions of climate change. The department is also home to the Center for Remote Sensing, an active cluster of faculty who are world leaders in this field.


Interested applicants should contact Dr. Dan Li ( Please include your latest CV and names of three references. Position start date is as soon as possible but can be changed depending on the candidate’s availability. Initial contract duration is 12 months. Extension is desired but conditional on the performance of the candidate. 


Boston University is an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law. Applications from female and minority candidates are strongly encouraged. Boston University offers a competitive salary and benefits package.
