*Postdoctoral researcher position on drought predictability  *

The State University of New York (SUNY) University at Albany’s Atmospheric
Sciences Research Center invites applications for a postdoctoral researcher
(PDRA) position on drought predictability in the southern Great Plains. The
selected candidate will lead coupled regional modeling experiments using
the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model as part of an
interdisciplinary team of hydrologists and meteorologists. The specific
objective of the project is to improve understanding of how local (land)
and remote (SST) drought drivers interact across weather-climate time
scales and local-continental spatial scales and collectively influence
drought in the southern Great Plains.

The ideal candidate will have: strong programming skills in a Unix/Linux
environment; experience using coupled regional models such as WRF; and
understanding of mesoscale and synoptic meteorology, large-scale
atmospheric (climate) dynamics, planetary boundary layer processes, and
drought mechanisms.

The position is available from September 2017 for an initial appointment of
one year with possibility of extension for up to two additional years. To
be eligible, applicants must have received their doctoral degree in
Atmospheric Science, Meteorology, Hydrology or other climate-related
science since September 2014.

For additional details and to apply for this position, please visit the
SUNY Research Foundation announcement R17-28
Queries related to this position may be directed to Dr. Craig Ferguson (
crferguson at albany.edu).

Applications should be submitted by June 30, 2017.
