Atmospheric Scientist – Cloud Modeling (Mid-Career)


The Environmental & Climate Sciences Department (ECSD) ( 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 (, an observations-based program that measures aerosols, clouds, precipitation, radiation, and atmospheric dynamics; the Atmospheric Systems Research Program (, and the Environmental System Science Program ( 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 ECSD has an opening for an
Atmospheric Scientist with a focus on high-resolution cloud process modeling. The successful candidate will join the Cloud Processes Group ( is recognized for its state-of-the-art observational and modeling studies of the microphysical and dynamical processes that impact the lifecycle of clouds, with the aim of improving their representation in earth system models and increase our ability to understand and project global change.
