Postdoctoral Appointee – Modeling and Analysis of Aerosol-Cloud Interactions


The Earth System Science and Climate Research (ESSCR) Department at the Argonne National Laboratory, Environmental Science Division is seeking a postdoctoral scholar to evaluate and improve aerosol-cloud interactions (ACI) in Earth system models with the use of observational constraints from satellite.

The successful applicant will lead the development, computation, and evaluation of aerosol and ACI metrics in the DOE Energy Exascale Earth System Model (E3SM) using novel observational constraints that combine vertically resolved aerosol extinction coefficients and cloud and precipitation retrievals from CloudSat and CALIPSO. Anticipated responsibilities include performing E3SM simulations at high resolutions, analyzing model results and satellite datasets, incorporating on-going model development, developing aerosol and ACI diagnostic packages, and publishing research results.
