Please feel free to forward the following notice to potential candidates.
University of Wisconsin --- Milwaukee
*Project scientist, postdoctoral, and Ph.D. student positions*
Simulation, observation, and parameterization of clouds in climate models.
Pending final approval of funding, we seek applicants for multiple positions
on a Climate Process Team (CPT) to implement and develop a new approach to
modeling clouds, boundary layers, and cloud-aerosol interactions in
atmospheric general circulation models. Our CPT is a collaborative, 3-year
project funded by NSF and NOAA, with extension possible to 5 years.
Important development and evaluation roles in the project will be played by
large-eddy simulation, aircraft observations, and satellite analyses.
Postdoctoral and/or project scientist positions will be available in
parameterization development (GFDL, NCAR), large-eddy simulation (NOAA
ESRL), aircraft and satellite observations (University of Washington), and
satellite observations (Jet Propulsion Laboratory). Graduate research
assistantships will be available in cloud parameterization (University of
Successful applicants will join a multi-institutional team that includes Leo
Donner, Chris Golaz, and Yi Ming (GFDL, Princeton NJ); Andrew Gettelman and
Hugh Morrison (NCAR, Boulder CO); Graham Feingold (NOAA ESRL, Boulder CO);
Rob Wood (University of Washington, Seattle WA); Graeme Stephens (Jet
Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena CA); and Vincent Larson (University of
Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Milwaukee WI).
Please send expressions of interest (containing a statement of interest,
institutional preferences, CV, and contact information for three references)
to V. Larson (vlarson at uwm.edu). Once funding has been finalized, we will
provide specific institutional application instructions.
