Research Scientist – Wind Energy Applications

                Job ID: 310975

                Richland, WA (United States)


At Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), we're moving the boundaries of science through our interdisciplinary approach to solving challenges in energy and the environment, national security and fundamental sciences. It's these advancements today that will bring about big changes for tomorrow—in our nation and in the world. If you’re interested in being part of a dynamic team then we encourage you to apply!


The Atmospheric Sciences and Global Change Division at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) seeks a research scientist to advance our wind energy research portfolio through a combination of scientific activities and program development. The successful candidate will join a growing team of PNNL scientists and contribute to existing projects targeted at improving resource characterization (both terrestrial and offshore) and improving estimates of turbulence inflow in the context of a coupled measurements and modeling approach. In addition, the candidate will work with existing PNNL leadership to continue to develop PNNL’s wind energy research portfolio.
