*Job Description*

The Atmospheric Sciences and Global Change Division at Pacific Northwest
National Laboratory (PNNL) is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral
research associate for aerosol related research topics in the context of
global- and regional-scale aerosol and climate modeling. The successful
applicant will collaborate with researchers at PNNL and other national
laboratories to:

   - develop, implement, and document test strategies to verify the
   numerical algorithms used in the parameterization of aerosol lifecycle
   processes in a global climate model, and
   - implement new aerosol process modules developed at PNNL within a
   regional model, investigate the impact of the new treatments in the context
   of field campaign observations, and publish those findings in the
   peer-reviewed literature.

It will be essential for the candidate to make the commitment to developing
and maintaining robust, clean, and easily maintainable codes and scripts.
Teamwork and strong communication skills for engaging with project members
at PNNL and other national laboratories will also be very important.

*Minimum Qualifications*

1.    PhD in atmospheric sciences or environmental sciences received within
the past five years (60 months) from an accredited college or university.

2.    Good knowledge of the physical and chemical processes that affect
atmospheric aerosols.

3.    Basic understanding of numerical modeling techniques used in Earth
sciences or computational physics/chemistry.

4.    Fluency in Fortran programing and shell scripting.

5.    Experience with data analysis and visualization software.

6.    Strong communication skills.

7.    Strong team player with the willingness and ability to work

*Desirable Qualifications*

1.    Demonstrated ability to modify, compile, and run complex atmospheric
chemistry, weather or climate models.

2.    Experience with high-performance computing environments.

3.    Experience in using version control tools like Git or SVN.
