Postdoctoral Researcher- Atmospheric Science


We are excited to offer an opportunity for a Postdoctoral Researcher to conduct research in atmospheric modeling for a variety of applications including wind energy, flow over complex terrain, and transport and dispersion of hazardous materials.  Research projects for these applications require multi-scale atmospheric modeling, spanning from the mesoscale to the microscale, and often require development of the atmospheric simulation codes for improved performance. Familiarity with turbulence and surface-layer modeling, including canopy models, is desired, as is knowledge of atmospheric physics parameterizations.  You will work with a multidisciplinary team of scientists, engineers, programmers, and project managers to develop and apply new modeling capabilities for wind energy assessments, meteorological forecasts in complex terrain, and assessing the consequences of hazardous atmospheric releases.

This position is in the Atmospheric, Earth & Energy Division, Atmospheric Science Research and Applications Group, and will also involve working with the National Atmospheric Release Advisory Center (NARAC, see
