Postdoctoral Researcher – Urban Climate


The selected candidate will join the BNL’s Center for Multiscale Applied sensing team (CMAS; working in close collaboration with the Environmental and Climate Sciences Department as part of the new Southwest Urban Corridor Integrated Field Laboratory team.

The Southwest Urban Corridor Integrated Field Laboratory is a multi-institutional project supported by the Department of Energy. The project aims to integrate a diverse suite of high-resolution observations (atmospheric, land surface, and infrastructure), diagnostic/predictive models, and civic engagement to provide new knowledge and deliver next-generation predictive tools. These tools will incorporate the effects of spatiotemporal drivers, atmospheric evolution, impacts, tradeoffs, and feedbacks, such that they can promote equitable policy interventions targeting extreme climate events, carbon dioxide emissions, and local air pollution within and across the Arizona urban corridor.

In this role the postdoctoral researcher will join the BNL Southwest Urban Integrated Field Laboratory team and conduct data analysis towards (i) understanding the feedbacks among urban infrastructure, waste heat, and extreme heat/weather events; (ii) assessing the spatiotemporal patterns of extreme heat and air quality impacts across the diverse urban landscape; (iii) evaluating the efficacy and social equity of mitigative actions across communities that include traditionally underrepresented groups, and feedbacks and trade-offs between the coupling of greenhouse gas emissions, climate impacts, and air quality. The team also leverages the observatories developed by BNL’s Center for Multiscale Applied Sensing (CMAS; to collect unique field data in Arizona.  This position has a high level of interaction with an international and multicultural scientific community.
