Career Opportunities The University of Miami is considered among the top
tier institutions of higher education in the U.S. for its academic
excellence, superior medical care, and cutting-edge research. At the U, we
are committed to attracting a talented workforce to support our common
purpose of transforming lives through teaching, research, and service.
Through our values of Diversity, Integrity, Responsibility, Excellence,
Compassion, Creativity and Teamwork (DIRECCT) we strive to create an
environment where everyone contributes in making UM a great place to work.
We are one of the largest private employers in Miami-Dade County; home to
more than 13,400 faculty and staff from all over the world.

The Cooperative Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Studies (CIMAS) of the
University of Miami (UM) invites applications for a Postdoctoral Associate
position that involves the use of Global Navigation Satellites Systems
(GNSS) radio occultation observations to improve global and hurricane
weather analyses and forecasts. The successful candidate will be
responsible for conducting research to improve the use of radio occultation
observations to improve global and hurricane weather prediction. More
specifically, the incumbent will be responsible for developing,
implementing and testing improved assimilation algorithms for radio
occultation observations into NOAA’s operational models. He or she will
also be responsible for conducting numerical weather prediction
experiments, interpreting the results, presenting findings at scientific
meetings and contributing significantly to the publication of results in
scientific journals.

The work will be done in close collaboration with scientists in the
Hurricane Research Division (HRD) at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration's (NOAA) Atmospheric Oceanographic and Meteorological
Laboratory (AOML). The work will involve developing and evaluating impact
of advanced algorithms for radio occultation data assimilation to improve
numerical weather prediction.

• Must have a Ph.D. in Atmospheric Sciences or in a related field.
• The successful candidate should have experience with one or more of the
following: remote sensing, data assimilation, numerical weather prediction,
observational data analysis, and use of numerical model output as a means
for interpreting observation-based results.
• Strong communication and computer skills are required.

A current resume, a statement of interests, and the names of 3 people who
can provide letters of recommendation are required.
