Post-doc Job: Stable Atmospheric Variability and Transport

University of Illinois, Urbana Champaign, Illinois, USA
Closing date: not specified

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; dataanalysis and instrumentationexperience.

Knowledge
Must have a strong background inatmospheric 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
