We seek applicants for two postdoctoral scholar positions in the areas of regional coupled modeling and data assimilation. The successful applicants will participate in a project to study the impact of dust on storm development over North Africa and East Atlantic and another project to study the impact of remote sensing data on Atmospheric River forecasts using the WRF or COAWST (Coupled-Ocean-Atmosphere-Wave-Sediment Transport) modeling framework. Areas of emphasis include but are not limited to (1) coupled model development, (2) dust-radiative-microphysical interactions on storm environment and development, (3) ocean and atmosphere interaction, (4) case studies of convective systems, and (5) remote sensing data assimilation including GPS radio occultation observations. Applicants with experience with atmospheric and/or oceanic modeling systems, data assimilation, and FORTRAN programing are preferred. The positions are available immediately. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in a field of Atmospheric Sciences, Oceanic Sciences or relevant field, effective oral and written communication skills, and strong programming and analytical skills.

Applicants should submit a complete CV, including a list of refereed publications and contact information for three references.
