The Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Indiana University (IU) Bloomington invites applicants for a postdoctoral research associate in mesoscale-microscale weather model coupling for wind-energy purposes. This work will be performed in collaboration with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).
The emphasis of this position is on coupling the wind-plant and atmospheric-boundary-layer scale flow (microscale) with the regional-scale weather (mesoscale). This coupling between the mesoscale and microscale is important because it greatly expands the range of conditions of wind-plant flows that we can simulate. Large-eddy simulation is used to compute the microscale flows and numerical weather prediction codes are used to compute the mesoscale flows. In this work, we are particularly interested in i) offshore mesoscale-microscale coupling to capture effects within the wind plant including coastal low-level jets, sea breezes, and frontal passages and ii) mesoscale-microscale coupling applied to wind-plant simulation cases. Examples of research projects include, but are not limited to, devising methods to simulate sea breeze flows and/or coastal low-level jets and examining ways to simulate multiple days to a full week of conditions on the U.S. eastern seaboard.
Applicants must have a Ph.D. in atmospheric science, physics, engineering, or a related field prior to employment. Basic qualifications include:
