Job description

Positions are available for a research technician to work in the department of Physical and Environmental Sciences at Texas A&M University at Corpus Christi. The candidates would work in Dr. Chuntao Liu ‘s research group (http://atmos.tamucc.edu/trmm/) in the studies of precipitation and properties of convective systems using 20+ years of TRMM and GPM observations. Current research directions include, but not limited to, remote sensing of precipitation with radar and passive microwave radiometers; understanding of extreme weather events, including relationship between lightning and the properties of convection; morphology and organization of convective systems; trace gases vertical transport by deep convection by using machine learning techniques. We are also involved in the field campaigns of DCOTSS to understand the trace gas transport into the lower stratosphere by overshooting storms over the United States in summer (https://dcotss.org/) and OYESNSA to understand the global electric circuit at Barrow Alaska (https://www.arm.gov/research/campaigns/nsa2017oyesnsa/). 

The research technician is anticipated to help maintain datasets and develop instruments to measure the atmospheric properties using various platforms. The applicant should have earned at least a BS degree in atmospheric science, engineering, computer science. The experiences with Python, instrument design, 3D printing, and Raspberry Pi would be preferred
