[Met-jobs] UCLA Postdoctoral Position in Observational Analysis of Precipitating Marine Boundary Layers

From Mikael Witte <>
Date Mon, 18 May 2020 14:02:41 -0700

A postdoctoral position is available with the UCLA Joint Institute for Regional Earth System Science and Engineering (JIFRESSE). The main focus of the position is a joint UCLA/JPL project on the evolution of precipitating boundary layer clouds. The incumbent will analyze ground-based remote sensing observations of water vapor, precipitation properties and vertical motion to understand the roles of precipitation and convection on boundary layer moisture structure/organization. The selected candidate will have ample opportunity to collaborate with JPL and UCLA scientists involved in satellite remote sensing and validation of retrievals using collocated aircraft observations.


Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Atmospheric Sciences, Physics or a closely related field. A strong background in remote sensing is desired and an interest in “big data” tools is a plus.


Applicants should submit a cover letter and complete CV, including contact information for three references. Inquiries and application materials should be addressed to Dr. Mikael Witte ( The position is available immediately and applications will be reviewed on an ongoing basis until it is filled. Given current circumstances, it is anticipated that this will be a remote work position to start.
