The Atmospheric Science Research Group at Hobart and William Smith Colleges is seeking a post-doctoral researcher to:
- contribute to NSF-funded research on lake-effect snowstorms in the Great Lakes region
- teach one undergraduate course in atmospheric science each year
- mentor undergraduate researchers as part of an established summer research program
The research will provide new understanding of complex interactions that influence mesoscale and convective boundary layer thermodynamics and dynamics in lake-effect environments. These interactions span across multiple spatiotemporal scales, including interactions of synoptic-scale systems with mesoscale systems.
The teaching responsibilities associated with this position are one course per academic year on a topic that complements the current atmospheric science offerings at Hobart and William Smith Colleges.
This position will also include research mentorship responsibilities of undergraduate researchers during the summer program of the Northeast Partnership for Atmospheric and Related Sciences (NEPARS) Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) site at Hobart and William Smith Colleges.
This is a full-time, 12-month, benefits-eligible,Temporary administrative position. This position description is not all-inclusive, as other tasks or responsibilities may be assigned.
Terms of appointment are for one year, renewable for one additional year, subject to satisfactory performance and continued grant funding. Applicants from demographic groups underrepresented in the atmospheric sciences are especially encouraged to apply.
