relevant fields, a strong background in one or more of the following fields:
satellite meteorology, radiative transfer, cloud microphysics, and data
assimilation, proficiency with high-resolution atmospheric models such as
WRF and HWRF, and strong programming abilities (familiarity with Linux,
FORTRAN, IDL or Matlab, and Python are desirable) and excellent writing
The position can be started as early as January 2018, though the starting
date is negotiable based on mutual interests. The initial appointment will
