Position Announcement


Post-doctoral Research Position

Center for Environmental Research, Education, and Outreach

Washington State University

Pullman, WA 99164-1030


The Center for Environmental Research, Education and Outreach (CEREO) at
Washington State University (WSU) invites applications for a
post-doctoral research appointment to participate in a large
multi-institutional interdisciplinary effort to develop a
biosphere-relevant earth systems model (Bio-EaSM). This Bio-EaSM will be
developed to enable investigation of land-atmosphere interactions among
carbon, nitrogen, and water under decadal-scale climate variability.
Components of the model include the Weather Research and Forecast (WRF)
model, the Community Multi-scale Air Quality (CMAQ) system, and the
Variable Infiltration Capacity (VIC) land surface model. The successful
candidate should have experience with the application and development of
modeling applications based upon one or more of these modeling systems
in a Linux environment. The selected candidate will also have
demonstrated strong written and oral communication skills. An earned
Ph.D. in a relevant science or engineering field is required before the
date of hire.


CEREO is a faculty-led initiative of which the premise is to make WSU's
outstanding environmental programs more than just the sum of the parts
through building synergism and creative collaboration among faculty
involved in environmentally-oriented activities
(http://www.cereo.wsu.edu/index.html). The candidate will also work
directly with researchers at the Laboratory for Atmospheric Research
(LAR) and in the Water Resource group in Civil and Environmental
Engineering. LAR is an air quality research group with a strong
reputation for instrument development and field observations of
atmospheric chemistry and in numerical modeling of regional atmospheric
chemistry and air quality (http://www.lar.wsu.edu
<http://www.lar.wsu.edu> ). This effort is also closely linked to an NSF
IGERT on nitrogen cycling (http://igert.nspire.wsu.edu/).


Screening of applications will begin on February 1, 2011 and will
continue until the position is filled. Candidates should submit (via
e-mail) a letter of application which addresses all of the above
requirements and describes your research interests, curriculum vitae,
and names and addresses of five references to the following individuals:
