Postdoctoral Researcher – Atmospheric Modeling


Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory is excited to offer an opportunity for a Atmospheric Modeling Postdoctoral Researcher to conduct research in atmospheric modeling for a variety of applications including wind energy, climate impacts on urban infrastructure, flow over urban and complex terrain, and transport and dispersion of hazardous materials.  Research projects for these applications require multi-scale atmospheric modeling, spanning from global climate scales to the microscale, and will require development of atmospheric simulation codes for improved functionality and performance. Familiarity with turbulence, surface-layer, or land-surface modeling is desired, as is knowledge of modeling in urban environments and 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 and urban 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
