Post-doc Job: Stable Atmospheric Variability and Transport

at ISWS, PRI, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

The Climate and Atmospheric Science section pursues a program of basic
and applied research, monitoring, services, and outreach to address key
atmospheric issues of importance to Illinois, the Midwest, and the
nation. Areas of research include climate variability and change, how
hazardous weather events respond to climate variations, the impacts of
weather and climate events, air quality, cloud physics, storm-scale
(mesoscale) meteorology, and near-surface (boundary layer) weather. The
CAS is seeking a Postdoctoral Research Associate for the SAVANT (stable
atmospheric variability and transport) project.

Primary function and Major duties

Measure and analyze stable atmospheric variability and transport,
including atmospheric cold drainage and converge flow processes and how
the flows affect pollutant dispersion. Data will be measured by remote
sensing, airborne, tower, and ground instruments (such as wind data from
3-D Doppler lidar, pollutant dispersion from 3-D aerosol lidar, ground
temperature, radiation, atmospheric thermodynamic properties, and point
measurements of pollutant dispersion measurements).

Qualifications

Education

PhD in atmospheric science, engineering, computer science, or a related
field.

Experience

Required: A demonstrated record of writing and/or publishing of manuscripts.

Preferred: expertise in boundary layer processes, such as cold drainage
and converging flows in stable boundary layers; data analysis and
instrumentation experience.

Knowledge

Must have a strong background in atmospheric science, as well as
extensive programming skills.

Duration

Two years with annual contract contingent upon the funding availability
and performance.

Application deadline

Open until the position is filled.

Salary:is commensurate with qualifications and experience.

Application procedures:Please send a letter of application, CV, and the
names, addresses, phone numbers, and e-mail addresses of three
professional references to Junming Wang,wangjim@illinois.edu
<mailto:wangjim@illinois.edu>. All requested information must be
submitted for your application to be considered.
