Postdoctoral Research Associate – Atmospheric Sciences

 

The Environmental & Climate Sciences Department (www.bnl.gov/envsci) at Brookhaven National Laboratory focuses on a wide range of theoretical, experimental, and field studies in support of the U.S. Department of Energy’s climate and energy research agendas. Work is supported by the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) User Facility (www.arm.gov), an observations-based program that measures aerosols, clouds, precipitation, radiation, and atmospheric dynamics; the Atmospheric Systems Research Program (https://asr.science.energy.gov/); and the Terrestrial Ecosystems Science Program (https://ess.science.energy.gov/). This work is pursued with the ultimate goal of improving predictability and reducing the uncertainty in global and regional climate models. The department research portfolio also includes development of environmental technologies and applications for renewable energies, urban science, and national security.

The Environmental & Climate Sciences Department (ECSD) has an opening for a Postdoctoral Research Associate. In this role you will work with a team of scientists in the Environmental & Climate Sciences Department, the Center for Multiscale Applied Sensing (www.bnl.gov/cmas) and the Radar Science group at Stony Brook University (www.radarscience.weebly.com) on the research, development and deployment of novel, ultra-high resolution sensors for aerosol-cloud-precipitation studies in the real atmosphere and in controlled environment (i.e. cloud chamber). A successful candidate will have a strong interest in the use of observational datasets for the study of cloud microphysics and dynamics and their interaction with the free atmosphere. This position has a high level of interaction with an international and multicultural scientific community.
