Job Description
We seek a post-doctoral scientist with experience in analyzing and interpreting atmospheric observations for the purpose of understanding cloud properties and processes. Knowledge of cloud microphysics and analysis of ground-based and/or in situ observations is required. The successful candidate will create and utilize novel datasets for the evaluation and improvement of the representation of clouds in models at various spatial scales.
.
Minimum Requirements
Candidates must have received a PhD within the past five years from an accredited college or university.

All staff at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory must be able to demonstrate the legal right to work in the United States.
.
Qualifications
PhD in Atmospheric Sciences, Meteorology, Atmospheric Physics or related degree
We are looking for highly motivated individuals who can demonstrate the ability to develop hypotheses, test those hypotheses, write and take the lead in publishing papers, and work in a collaborative environment.

The primary goal of the planned research is to develop an improved understanding of processes that affect clouds, aerosols, and their interactions over local to global spatial scales and to better represent these processes in the next generation climate models.

The researchers will join a team of scientists performing research on 1) linking land-surface, boundary layer, aerosol, and shallow clouds, 2) environmental conditions, wind shear, and aerosol effects on the lifecycle of deep convection, 3) aerosol aging and its impact on optical and cloud-nucleating properties, 4) cloud processing and wet removal of aerosols, and 5) tropical cloud processes.

Our team uses data from the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) program, along with the Community Atmosphere Model (CAM) and the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) models to study these processes over a range of spatial scales.

Experience with running the CAM or WRF models and/or using DOE Atmospheric Radiation and Measurement (ARM) program data is desirable, but not required. The selected candidate will work closely with climate scientists at PNNL, other DOE National Laboratories, and universities as part of DOEs Atmospheric System Research (ASR) program.

About Tri-Cities
http://www.visittri-cities.com/
The Tri-Cities started out with 3 main communities: Kennewick, Pasco, and Richland - but the phenomenal growth of neighboring West Richland has made the area more of a Quad-City. Located just hours from Seattle, WA and Portland, OR, the area is embraced by the beauty of a desert landscape and connected by the Columbia, Snake, and Yakima rivers.

The Tri-Cities offers a multitude of recreational, cultural, and historical activities and is a great place to visit and live. We're known for our premier golf courses, award-winning wineries, unique shopping, and abundant outdoor and water recreation. Click on the link above to learn more about the various communities. PNNL is located in Richland, WA.
