I'd like to call your attention to a posting for a postdoctoral appointee
in our department. The primary role of this postdoctoral appointee will be
to work on parameterizations of ice nucleation on dust in an atmospheric
general circulation model. Please forward to anyone you think would be
interested in applying. The posting will stay open through January, 2018
to advertise at AGU and AMS. I've put this information on a PDF document
(attached) to make distribution easier.

What Your Job Will Be Like
The Atmospheric Sciences Department is seeking a postdoctoral research
associate to work on projects related to global earth system models and
global climate models for researching dust aerosols. We are interested in
developing and using these models to improve our understanding of
atmospheric process of ice nucleation on dust as it relates to laboratory
On any given day, you may be called on to:
- Work to improve the representation of ice nucleation on dust aerosols
in highly complex climate models that are typically employed at the
Department of Energy’s Leadership Class supercomputing facilities;
- Seek opportunities to expand your research portfolio in a wide variety
of applications that include, but are not limited to, earth system
modeling, regional climate modeling, and uncertainty quantification;
- Work under the supervision of one or more research staff and
collaborate with other researchers at Sandia, other national laboratories,
and in academia.
