Apologies for cross-postings.


Applications are invited for a post-doctoral scholar position at the University of Chicago’s
Computation Institute. The position is for 2 years initially, with possible extension of one year based
on performance. The position is expected to begin in September, 2014 and the review of applications
will begin immediately.
The project’s goal is to study the transition of stratocumulus to cumulus clouds in the North Pacific
using the data collected during an aircraft field campaign scheduled to be held in summer, 2015. The
candidate is expected to actively participate the field campaign and assist in operating and analyzing
data from the various instruments onboard the aircraft particularly the Doppler cloud radar and lidar.
We will use the data to deduce in-cloud vertical air motion and atmospheric radiative heating rate
profiles among other meteorological parameters.
The successful applicant will have a PhD in atmospheric or related science, preferably with prior
experience in data analysis of relevant observations, and good skills in scientific deduction and
communication of scientific findings. Preference will be given to candidates with previous
experience in all or some of the following areas 1) analyzing data collected by Doppler cloud radars
and lidars, 2) using radiative transfer models and 3) working with data from aircraft in-situ
Applicants should include a 1-page statement of research interests and relevant experience, and a CV
including contacts for three references (subject: VPG Postdoc) to Julie Wulf-Knoerzer at
jwulf at ci.uchicago.edu.
Questions may be directed to Dr. Virendra P. Ghate at vghate at anl.gov
