Job description

NOTE: Application review begins immediately and position is open until filled

The Environmental and Climate Sciences Department (https://www.bnl.gov/envsci/) at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Associate position. The successful candidates will join the Cloud Processes Group (https://www.bnl.gov/envsci/cloud/) that is recognized for its state-of-the-art observational and modeling studies of the atmosphere with the aim of improving understanding and predictive abilities of atmospheric processes important to climate. 

The successful candidate will work with a collaborative team of scientists from BNL and Stony Brook University on a project to advance predictive understanding of urban meteorology by spearheading analysis of urban meteorological remote sensing and surface meteorology datasets and high-resolution model output, publish peer-reviewed articles, and present at workshops, and national and international meetings. Candidates with an appetite for team approaches and solid independent thinking are strongly encouraged to apply. 

The position requires a Ph.D. in atmospheric science or a closely related field by the time of appointment, a background analyzing observations of atmospheric processes, a background analyzing atmospheric model output, and skill in programming and analysis languages (e.g., FORTRAN, IDL, and/or Matlab). It is preferred that candidates have experience working on turbulence and/or boundary layer processes, analyzing lidar measurements, and analyzing atmospheric model output against measurements. It is also preferred that candidates have a demonstrated record of publishing, effective oral and written communication skills, and an ability to conduct independent research as well as work as part of a team. 

Review of applications begins immediately. The initial appointment will be one year, with renewal for a second year contingent upon availability of funding and satisfactory performance. Research will be under the direction of Dr. Andrew Vogelmann.

Applications must be submitted through the following link:
