Job Description

The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) seeks a postdoctoral 
researcher for research related to regional and global modeling with a 
focus on aerosol processes and their interaction with clouds. The 
selected candidate is expected to participate in the development of a 
framework for an aerosol subgrid variability scheme to reduce 
scale-induced uncertainty in simulating aerosols and their radiative 
forcing in GCMs. The successful candidate will also have the opportunity 
to work with a group of recognized scientists to quantify the 
uncertainty and sensitivity in aerosol-cloud interactions in climate model.

Minimum Requirements

Candidates must have received a PhD within the past five years from an 
accredited college or university.


A PhD in Atmospheric Sciences, Meteorology, or related fields is 
required. Candidates with experience in (1) regional or global climate 
modeling; (2) aerosol microphysical processes; (3) fluency in FORTRAN; 
and (4) fluency with LINUX operating system and parallel programming 
paradigms on high-performance computers are strongly preferred. Because 
visible scientific accomplishments are key to the success of our project 
team, the candidate must have demonstrated excellent communication 
skills as evidenced by publications in peer-reviewed journals and 
presentations at professional conferences. Proactive and timely 
publication is an essential requirement. A cover letter describing 
applicants' research experience and interests, and a curriculum vitae 
with a list of publications in referenced journals is required.

Equal Employment Opportunity

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) is an Affirmative Action / 
Equal Opportunity Employer and supports diversity in the workplace.  All 
employment decisions are made without regard to race, color, religion,

About Tri-Cities


The Tri-Cities started out with 3 main communities: Kennewick, Pasco, 
and Richland - but the phenomenal growth of neighboring West Richland 
has made the area more of a "Quad-City". Located just hours from 
Seattle, WA and Portland, OR, the area is embraced by the beauty of a 
desert landscape and connected by the Columbia, Snake, and Yakima 
rivers.  The Tri-Cities offers a multitude of recreational, cultural, 
and historical activities and is a great place to visit and live. We're 
known for our premier golf courses, award-winning wineries, unique 
shopping, and abundant outdoor and water recreation. Visit the link 
above to learn more about the various communities. PNNL is located in 
Richland, WA.
