Postdoctoral Fellow- Atmospheric Modeling & Predictability (TRACER-related)


NSF NCAR’s Climate and Global Dynamics (CGD) Laboratory is excited to announce the job opening for a Postdoc Fellow in the Atmospheric Modeling & Predictability (AMP) Section. This position will focus on understanding the dynamics and microphysics contributing to convective invigoration in coastal regions. Specifically, the postdoctoral researcher will be using data from the U.S. Department of Energy Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) user facility’s Tracking Aerosol Convection Interactions Experiment (TRACER). The postdoc researcher will be responsible for conducting independent and collaborative research on the interactions between convective dynamics and microphysics, the large-scale environment, and boundary layer processes, identifying key mechanisms behind aerosol-related convective invigoration, and publishing results of this research in scientific journals. The goals of the present work are, first, to build a comprehensive library of convective cases with a variety of aerosol conditions using observations, and second, to use high resolution large-eddy simulations to untangle dynamics-microphysics and cloud-environment interactions behind convective invigoration.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a 2-year term position with the second year contingent on performance.
