Post-doctoral position in land-atmosphere interactions, Penn State University
A research scientist position ideally suited for a recent PhD graduate is available in the Department of Meteorology, College of Earth and Mineral Sciences at Penn State University. The appointment is for one year but can be extended depending on documented research progress.
The position entails analyses, interpretation, and reporting of energy and carbon fluxes data obtained at various locations around the world. In addition, the position requires the development, testing, and application of numerical models to study thermodynamics and dynamics of the atmospheric boundary layers over marine and continental environments, and to investigate cloud formation processes. Cloud resolving and air quality numerical models need to be applied to consider the influences of particles on cloud formation processes and associated impacts on regional climate. This position also offers the opportunity to participate in field research activities in the general area of land-atmosphere interactions.
Interested candidates can contact Professor José D Fuentes via email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please submit a complete resume, a brief letter indicating professional goals and how academic background and research experiences match the described position, and three names of referees with their associated contact information.
