The Center for Climate Systems Research (CCSR) in the Earth Institute, Columbia University in New York City invites applicants for an Associate Research Scientist appointment to study cloud-aerosol interactions through numerical modeling and analysis of remote sensing and airborne measurements.

The Associate Research Scientist will study aerosol-cloud interactions in the meteorological context of cold air outbreaks with an overarching goal of assessing and advancing model physics in the GISS climate model (ModelE). In conjunction with a science team devoted to characterizing cold air outbreaks over the NW Atlantic through a multi-aircraft field campaign, the Associate Research Scientist will analyze remote sensing and in situ measurements, design, conduct, and analyze large-eddy simulations, and evaluate the fidelity of the column physics of ModelE to represent cold air outbreaks and the associated aerosol-mediated cloud regime transitions using single-column model simulations. The Associate Research Scientist will perform original research, present novel results at scientific meetings, publish first-author papers in peer-reviewed journals, and contribute to funding proposals.

Minimum Qualifications:

  • PhD atmospheric science or related field and at least two years post-PhD relevant experience is required.
  • Strong mathematics and programming skills.
  • Demonstrated ability to work independently and as a vital member of a large, multi-institutional research team.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Expertise with numerical modeling, including large-eddy simulations and single-column model simulations of boundary-layer cloud systems.
  • Experience working with in situ and remote sensing datasets of clouds, aerosols, and meteorology.
  • Coding skills in R, Python, and Fortran.

This is a full-time officer of research position and provides a comprehensive salary and benefits package.
