Job description

The research supported by this award will be directed toward developing new methods of introducing model uncertainty into the Hurricane Weather Research and Forecasting (HWRF) ensemble prediction system.

Candidates should hold a PhD in atmospheric science or related discipline, conferred within the last three years, from a college or university accredited by the U.S Dept. of Education or an internationally recognized accrediting organization, have experience using numerical weather prediction models, and have the ability to work independently. Ideal candidates would have some experience with the HWRF modeling system; however, any modeling experience is sufficient.

Terms of appointment are for one (1) year, renewable for one additional year, subject to satisfactory performance. All applicants must address in their applications their ability to work with a culturally diverse population.

Applicants are asked to submit electronically: (1) a curriculum vitae, (2) a publication list, and (3) the names of three individuals who can provide a letter of reference and (4) a statement of professional interests to Ryan Torn. The position will remain open until it is filled. Preference will be given to applications that are received before 15 October.
