Atmospheric Science Postdoctoral Scholar
Climate & Ecosystem Sciences Division at Lawrence Berkeley National
Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) seeks an Atmospheric Science Postdoctoral Scholar
to research land-atmosphere interactions across multiple scales. This
position is part of an interdisciplinary project to advance fundamental
understanding and modeling of soil moisture-vegetation-precipitation
feedbacks affecting the statistics of drought and heavy precipitation
extremes. Research topics include the role of soil moisture, surface heat
fluxes, and cold-pools in convective initiation, land-surface and
boundary-layer influences on the timing and intensity of deep convection on
diurnal to multiday timescales, and regimes or preferred modes of multiscale
land-atmosphere interactions. The successful candidate will join a highly
collaborative and effective team solving fundamental problems in climate and
