Job description

CIRES/ NOAA PSL Boundary Layer Meteorologist Research Scientist

Requisition Number: 29569
Location: Boulder, Colorado
Employment Type: Research Faculty
Schedule: Full-Time
Date Posted: 02-Apr-2021

Job Summary

The Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) in Boulder, Colorado is seeking a research scientist to work in the NOAA Physical Sciences Laboratory (PSL) Boundary Layer Observations and Processes team. The Research Scientist will:
  • Collect and analyze atmospheric boundary layer observational data sets, as well as deploy and maintain instruments
  • Develop new methods for integrating multiple remote sensing and in-situ instrumentation systems to extract useful meteorological information
  • Use observations to improve our understanding of boundary layer dynamical processes
  • Use observations to evaluate numerical weather prediction models
A chosen candidate is expected to be self-motivated, initiating and pursuing fundamental research questions to expand our knowledge of the atmospheric boundary layer that are relevant to NOAA’s mission. The candidate should have excellent communication skills and be very comfortable working in a team environment.
 
These positions will be located in Boulder, Colorado, with an office at the NOAA Physical Sciences Laboratory (PSL).


The University of Colorado Boulder is committed to building a culturally diverse community of faculty, staff, and students dedicated to contributing to an inclusive campus environment. We are an Equal Opportunity employer, including veterans and individuals with disabilities.

Responsibilities

  • Conduct research relevant to NOAA and PSL's missions involving boundary layer meteorology and its application to renewable energy, severe weather, hydrology, air quality, and weather forecasting. 
  • Work collaboratively with a research team, including other NOAA laboratories and potentially operational partners in the National Weather Service.
  • Effectively convey the research results through reports, peer-reviewed journal articles, and presentations.
  • An opportunity exists to write proposals to partially fund the team’s research activities.

Required

  • Ph.D. in Atmospheric Science or a related field.
  • Demonstrated experience with ground-based meteorological remote sensing observing systems, and diagnosing observations to understand fundamental physical processes.
  • Experience developing structured code in commonly used languages, which might include Python, Matlab, IDL, R, Fortran90, C, and UNIX scripting.
