*A new postdoctoral position at the Department of Atmospheric Sciences, 
University of Utah*

The successful candidate will join a well-established research team in 
atmospheric modeling and data assimilation and work collaboratively with 
scientists at the University of Utah, NOAA, and broad community during 
the Years of the Maritime Continent (YMC).  The specific research 
project involves multi-scale variabilities and interactions of 
atmospheric convection on the diurnal, synoptic, intraseasonal, and 
seasonal scales in the Maritime Continent region using numerical 
simulations and data assimilation at a cloud-permitting scale.

Qualified applicants should have a Ph.D. in Atmospheric Sciences or 
relevant fields, a strong mathematics and physics background, excellent 
writing skills, proficiency with atmospheric and/or coupled 
atmospheric-ocean-land models, familiarity with numerical modeling and 
advanced data assimilation systems such as WRF, WRFDA, GSI, and strong 
programming abilities (familiarity with Linux, FORTRAN, IDL or Matlab, 
and Python are desirable). Previous research experiences in mesoscale 
convective systems, radar data assimilation, and Madden-Julian 
Oscillation (MJO) are helpful.

The position can be started as early as September 1, 2017, though the 
starting date is negotiable based on mutual interests. The initial 
appointment will be for one year, renewable dependent on the performance 
and availability of funding. Salary will be competitive based on 
experience and qualification. The University of Utah offers competitive 
benefits. The position is open now until filled and full consideration 
will be given to applications received by July 10, 2017.

To apply for the position, please submit a complete CV, a letter 
expressing research interests, and the names and contact information of 
3 references to Prof. Zhaoxia Pu (Zhaoxia.Pu at utah.edu).

This position will require the successful completion of a criminal 
background check. The University of Utah is an Affirmative Action/Equal 
Opportunity employer.
