[Met-jobs] Postdoctoral positions in aerosol-cloud research at the University of Washington

From Robert Wood <>
Date Mon, 8 Jun 2020 10:47:32 -0700

The Marine Cloud Brightening Project in the Department of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Washington is seeking Postdoctoral Scholars to undertake cloud resolving modeling studies to test the efficacy of cloud brightening with deliberate injections of sea-salt aerosol. We are especially interested in candidates who have experience in one or more of the following areas: numerical modeling, aerosol-cloud interactions, cloud physics, observationally-based model evaluation.

The Marine Cloud Brightening (MCB) Project is a research program studying interventions to cool climate through increasing the reflection of sunlight from clouds and the effects of aerosol particles on clouds and climate. Led by Professor Robert Wood in the Department of Atmospheric Sciences at the UW, the MCB Project is a collaboration of over 25 researchers from the University of Washington, Palo Alto Research Center, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and other institutions.

Duties and Responsibilities
These are twelve month appointments at 100% FTE with the opportunity to extend to a second year subject to approval and availability of funding. A Postdoctoral Scholar is an academic appointment that requires evidence of a conferred PhD by the appointment start date and candidates cannot exceed five years of Postdoctoral experience prior to the end of an appointment.

Candidates must have an earned doctorate in atmospheric sciences or closely related field (at the time of appointment) and a background in cloud-related research.

It is preferred that candidates have: experience with atmospheric modeling at LES, cloud-resolving or global scales; experience with analysis of observational datasets, particularly those required for forcing and testing cloud-resolving models; and have a strong programming background and verbal and written communication skills.
