Postdoctoral research associateship in cloud parameterization

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research associateship in the parameterization of turbulence and clouds.  The project seeks to improve the higher-order closure parameterization of clouds in the Department of Energy’s new climate model, E3SM.  Duties include improving the simulation of all cloud types and improving the parameterization’s numerics and efficiency.

The project involves close collaboration with scientists at DOE laboratories, and the applicant will work directly with Vincent Larson ( at the University of Wisconsin --- Milwaukee (UWM).  The initial appointment will last for one year but may be renewed for an additional year upon mutual consent.

Desired qualifications include a Ph.D. in atmospheric science or a related field, knowledge of Fortran or another compiled computer language, and experience working with a numerical model, such as a climate model, numerical weather prediction model, or large-eddy simulation model.

To apply, interested candidates should send a statement of interest, CV, and contact information of three references to Vincent Larson at  Review of applications will start on 15 Jun 2018.
