The Atmospheric Sciences Research Center at SUNY University of Albany
invites applications for a postdoctoral research position in satellite
remote sensing and modeling of terrestrial hydrology.
This climate-relevant research will involve extensive data mining, data
analysis, numerical weather forecast model evaluation and refinement, and
satellite data assimilation in support of the international GEWEX GLASS
workgroup initiatives. Strong programming skills in a UNIX/Linux
environment (e.g., C, Fortran, Matlab, and shell scripts) as well as
excellent written and oral communication skills are required. Knowledge and
understanding of coupled land-atmospheric processes and coupled
forecast/climate models is essential. Specialized knowledge in
boundary-layer physics, 4-D Var, and hyperspectral remote sensing of water
vapor/clouds is preferred. The ideal candidate will have advanced skills in
either: the compilation and execution of the Weather Research and
Forecasting (WRF) Model or data assimilation of satellite observations. It
is expected that the appointee will publish lead and co-authored papers
with their advisor and contribute to grant writing efforts.
Candidates must hold a recent Ph.D. in Civil and Environmental Engineering,
Atmospheric Sciences, Hydrology, Meteorology, Applied Mathematics, Physics,
or other climate-related science. The Ph.D. must have been earned within
three years of initial appointment to this postdoctoral position.
The position is available immediately and will be an initial 12-month
appointment with the possibility of renewal pending satisfactory
performance. Applications must be submitted online via Interview Exchange
and should include a statement of research experience and interest, a
current CV, and names and contact information (address, email, and
telephone) for three professional references.
For priority consideration, applications should be submitted by January 31.
