Please share the following job positions with your colleagues.


PhD/Postdoc positions in Urban Climate Modeling is available in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. The prospective researcher will mainly focus on the influence of building infrastructure/vehicles on the dynamics of coupled heat and moisture transport in the urban atmospheric boundary layer (ABL). The postdoctoral research associate will also address other open questions related to extreme weather and urban planning. The work will rely on a combination of computational fluid dynamics (CFD), large eddy simulations (LES) and WRF modeling; experience with one of these models is thus advantageous. The research will be supervised by Professor Jiachuan Yang (, questions about the scope of the work can be addressed to (

Postdoc candidates should possess a Ph.D. in atmospheric sciences or engineering. Excellent written English and oral communication skills are required. Interested candidates are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.
