*BASIC JOB FUNCTION*:
Provides scientific leadership for in-situ sounding activities,
including the investigation and development of new sounding sensors
and capabilities. Fosters a culture of scientific excellence within
EOL and support the scientific community (particularly the
university community) through research, instrument development,
quality control of data from EOL-supported field programs, community
service, and education and outreach activities. Conducts original
and collaborative research that is aligned with and supports the
strategic visions of EOL and NCAR, particularly in areas that
leverage in-situ-sounding data sets, such as climate change
processes, the water cycle, or UTLS dynamics/chemistry. Participates
in NCAR research projects of a scale commensurate with that expected
of a national center and that address issues of national and
Scientific and/or Technical Research: Conduct independent and
collaborative research that primarily leverages in-situ sounding
data, such as in the areas of climate change processes, the water
cycle, or UTLS dynamics/chemistry. Present results at national and
international meetings and publish results in peer-reviewed
journals. Perform community service and leadership activities such
as manuscript and proposal reviews and membership on steering and
other committees and panels, both within and outside EOL and NCAR.
Develop proposals for funding from other agencies to participate in
scientific activities that contribute to the more complete or prompt
achievement of EOL and NCAR organizational goals.
Development: Advocate, lead, and engage in future instrument
developments and improvements. Provide scientific vision and
leadership for the investigation of new in-situ sounding sensors and
capabilities. Lead and collaborate on the development and deployment
of new or improved sounding capabilities, as well as the development
of new data quality-control processes for both current and improved
Community Interaction and Field Project Support: Advise the
atmospheric science community in the best use of sounding systems
and data. Support field deployment of these systems to ensure that
project objectives are met. Lead quality control and management of
sounding data from those projects. Develop new techniques and
algorithms for improved and new data sounding products.
Broader Roles in the Vitality of the Laboratory: Provide scientific
input for use in setting EOL and NCAR priorities and goals.

systems and related research.
* Experience in designing and conducting field-observation
* Experience with in-situ instrumentation techniques and operations.
Knowledge, Skills and Abilities:
* Demonstrated expertise and experience with radiosonde/dropsonde
sensors and data quality assurance.
* Advanced knowledge of atmospheric science in areas related to
in-situ sounding of the atmosphere, such as climate change
processes, the water cycle, or UTLS dynamics/chemistry.
* Demonstrated knowledge and experience in scientific analysis of
* Scientific leadership skills in developing and coordinating
scientific research teams
* Ability to write scientific papers as evidenced by manuscripts
published in peer-reviewed scientific journals.
