Position Description:    

Postdoctoral Associate in Atmospheric Science 
Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences 
Cornell University 
Ithaca, New York 

Who We Are 

Cornell's Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences engages in world-class research, and outstanding teaching, service and outreach. Professor Sara C. Pryor and her group use a combination of field measurements, big data analytics and high-fidelity numerical models to address research questions in climate science and energy science. She is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the American Meteorological Society. 

What You Will Do 

We are looking for a Postdoctoral Associate to join a new collaborative project between Cornell University and the National Center for Atmospheric Research. The project will develop and test, an integrated multi-container framework for the Weather Research and Forecasting model and deploy it to address science questions in three use-cases: (1) Land use/land cover (LULC) change in the US Northeast and feedbacks to extreme weather events and societal impacts. (2) Climate change impacts on wind and solar resources and (3) Air quality in the Northeast urban corridor. The appointee will focus primarily on use of WRF to address science questions within the three use-cases but will also include working with computational scientists to test and improve WRF simulations on cloud-based compute platforms. Accordingly, job duties (and effort allocation) are: 
• (50%) Conducting and evaluating numerical downscaling simulations using WRF. 
• (25%) Developing publication-quality research manuscripts. 
• (5%) Data archiving using best-practice data provenance procedures. 
• (20%) Testing containerize WRF realizations and post-processing tools. 

What We Need 

• Ph.D. in atmospheric science, engineering, or related subject. 
• Experience with high-performance computing environments and the Weather Research and Forecasting model (WRF) is required. 

This is a full-time position and will be located in Ithaca, New York. This is a one-year appointment with possible extension depending on funding and performance.
