The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) is recruiting a postdoctoral scientist to conduct innovative research in aerosol-climate modeling with a focus on the roles of light-absorbing aerosols in controls on melting of snow and ice. The selected candidate will work on quantifying the radiative impact of light-absorbing particles and temperature changes on the melting of snowpack and glaciers and the consequent effect on ecosystem and hydrological cycles using remote sensing retrievals and a regional model coupled with aerosol, radiation, land surface and snow components. The position is for two years and renewable for an additional year contingent upon performance. Candidates must have received a PhD within the past five years (60 months) or within the next 8 months from an accredited college or university. A Ph.D. degree in Atmospheric Sciences, Meteorology, or related fields is required.

Candidates with 1) experience in regional (e.g. WRF) or global climate modeling of aerosol and/or land processes, (2) fluency in Fortran and/or other computer language, and (3) experience with Linux/Unix computational environments and parallel programming paradigms on high-performance computers are preferred. Because visible scientific accomplishments are key to the success of our project team, the candidate must have demonstrated good communication and writing skills as evidenced by publications in peer-reviewed journals and presentations at professional conferences. Proactive and timely publication is an essential requirement. A cover letter describing the applicant’s research experience and interests, and a curriculum vitae with a list of publications in refereed journals and contact information of three references is recommended.
