To Apply:


The Argonne Leadership Computing Facility’s (ALCF) mission is to accelerate major scientific discoveries and engineering breakthroughs for humanity by designing and providing world-leading computing facilities in partnership with the computational science community. We help researchers solve some of the world’s largest and most complex problems with our unique combination of supercomputing resources and computational science expertise. 

The ALCF has an opening for a postdoctoral position in computational aspects of regional scale climate modeling. This is a joint position with the Atmospheric Science and Climate Research group of the Environmental Science Division. The candidate is expected to assist in the high spatial resolution simulations of regional climate change at convective resolving spatial scales. In particular, this position is for applications of the Weather Research Forecasting (WRF) model and similar regional scale weather/climate models at these spatial scales for multi-decadal simulations on high performance computing platforms, scaling models to existing and emerging platforms and optimizing model performance. This is a two-year position with a target start date in May 2020.

Position Requirements

Position Requirements:

  • PhD in physical science or engineering in a related field. 
  • Considerable knowledge of numerical methods and solvers used in atmospheric models, use of high-performance computing platforms, process scale models of atmospheric phenomena and extensive experience in using WRF.
  • Expertise and interest in data analysis and visualization and applications of advanced statistical methods for analysis is required. 
  • Some knowledge of using atmospheric observational datasets and familiarity with the use of GPU based systems for computing is preferable. 
  • Good communications skills and previous experience in writing technical papers and presentations at national and international symposia is expected.
  • Ability to model Argonne’s Core Values: Impact, Safety, Respect, Integrity, and Teamwork.

As an equal employment opportunity and affirmative action employer, and in accordance with our core values of impact, safety, respect, integrity and teamwork, Argonne National Laboratory is committed to a diverse and inclusive workplace that fosters collaborative scientific discovery and innovation. In support of this commitment, Argonne encourages minorities, women, veterans and individuals with disabilities to apply for employment. Argonne considers all qualified applicants for employment without regard to age, ancestry, citizenship status, color, disability, gender, gender identity, genetic information, marital status, national origin, pregnancy, race, religion, sexual orientation, veteran status or any other characteristic protected by law.

Argonne employees, and certain guest researchers and contractors, are subject to particular restrictions related to participation in Foreign Government Talent Recruitment Programs, as defined and detailed in United States Department of Energy Order 486.1. You will be asked to disclose any such participation in the application phase for review by Argonne’s Legal Department.
