Sr. Research Associate II


Verisk Atmospheric and Environmental Research (AER) is looking for a Senior Research Associate or Staff Scientist with expertise in observational evaluation of precipitating hydrometeor properties. Ideally this expertise will take the form of ground-based remote sensing applications, but expertise in other platforms will be considered. As a new member of Verisk AER’s globally recognized Research and Development division, you will be able to take advantage of opportunities for collaboration across our established research programs, including:

  • Understanding of convective processes and exploration of microphysical impacts
  • Detailed validation of cloud, precipitation, and radiative transfer processes using remotely sensed data
  • Global Navigation Satellite System Radio Occultation (GNSSRO) retrievals of temperature, water vapor, and cloud properties
  • The application of active and passive remote sensing to the monitoring of greenhouse gases and other air pollutants

In addition, you will be provided both individual and team mentorship to develop your own externally funded research program. The ideal candidate will publish high impact peer-reviewed papers, give presentations at scientific conferences, write proposals and reports, and keep up with relevant scientific, computing, and observational advances.
