*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 

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 <mailto:crferguson at albany.edu>).

Applications should be submitted by June 30, 2017.
