Postdoctoral Associate in Simulating Wind Climates and Wind Turbine Operating Conditions.

Earth and Atmospheric Sciences

Cornell University 


Position Description and Responsibilities:


Applications are sought for a Post Doctoral Associate to participate in a project designed to characterize extreme wind events of relevance to the wind energy and other industries, and assess the ability of the WRF model, when applied at high resolution, to characterize those events.


The selected applicant will conduct numerical modeling using WRF and potentially MPAS. They will also participate in diagnostic evaluation of model performance relative to in situ and remote sensing observations and reanalysis products and perform sensitivity analyses to characterize differential credibility as a function of model formulation.



The successful applicant will hold a PhD in atmospheric science, engineering or related subject. Experience with WRF is essential. Familiarity with statistics and particularly geospatial analysis of large data sets, high-performance computing environments and programming in Fortran and Matlab is desirable.


The preferred start date is 16th January 2020 and the initial appointment will be for 1 year with the possibility of renewal.


Salary will be commensurate with experience.


Specific responsibilities (and approximate effort allocation) include:

(50%) Conduct numerical simulations.

(20%) Conduct model performance analyses using remote sensing and in situ observations and reanalysis products

(10%) Archive model output and remote sensing data using best-practice data provenance procedures

(20%) Develop publication-quality research manuscripts


Application and Starting Date:

For full consideration, please submit a letter of application, name and contact information for three references a current curriculum vitae, a diversity statement of how, through research, teaching and/or service, the candidate can contribute to diversity, equity and inclusion in support of Cornell’s mission of “any person… any study”; to Academic Jobs Online


Applications will be reviewed until position is filled but those received by 15 November 2019 will receive full consideration. The Cornell community embraces diversity and inclusion. We value AA/EEO, Protected Veterans, and Individuals with Disabilities, and seek candidates who will create a climate that attracts persons of all races, ethnicities and genders.

Diversity and Inclusion are a part of Cornell University’s heritage. We are a recognized employer and educator valuing AA/EEO, Protected Veterans, and Individuals with Disabilities.
