Today is the last day you can apply for this position; no new applications will be accepted after 12:00 midnight Eastern Standard/Daylight Time.

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Duke University has an opening for a postdoctoral research associate in the area of land-atmosphere interactions to work with Professors Nathaniel Chaney and Gabriel Katul. The researcher will participate in a multi-institution project that aims to improve the representation of land surface heterogeneity in a suite of US climate models. The position will involve running LES experiments by coupling WRF-LES and WRF-Hydro. These simulations will then be leveraged to improve the modeling of feedback of heterogeneous land and atmosphere in climate models.

Candidates for this position must have a Ph.D. in the physical sciences or engineering. Ideal candidates will have a strong background in land surface modeling and/or large eddy simulations. Priority will be given to candidates with ample programming experience with a focus on Python and Fortran; prior experience with High Performance Computing will also be relevant. The position is available for one year, with renewal for another year contingent upon satisfactory performance and funding. Applicant materials should include a cover letter, a curriculum vitae including a publication list, and contact information for three references.
