Description: The Department of Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences at the University at Albany is seeking a postdoctoral research associate to perform research on tropical cyclone rapid intensification. The research will utilize high-resolution modeling, including at large-eddy scales, to investigate how mesoscale processes, boundary-layer processes, and multiscale interactions contribute to the onset of rapid intensification.

·      Ph.D. in atmospheric science, or related discipline, conferred within the last three years, from a college or university accredited by the U.S. Department of Education or an internationally recognized accrediting organization. The Ph.D. must be conferred before the start date of the postdoctoral position.
·      Experience with numerical modeling, preferably at high resolutions
·      Experience with data analysis and visualization, preferably with large datasets
·      Ability to work both independently and as a team
·      Excellent oral and written communication skills

Start: August 2020, or earlier

Appointment: One year, renewable for one additional year

Location: Albany, New York. Provided funds are available, the postdoctoral research associate will visit the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado to work with project collaborators for up to three months in each year.

How to apply: Applicants are asked to submit electronically:
·      A curriculum vitae
·      The names and contact information of three individuals who can provide a letter of reference
