Associate Postdoctoral Researcher – Convective Processes

The Department of Environmental and Climate Sciences (www.bnl.gov/envsci) at Brookhaven National Laboratory focuses on a wide range of theoretical, experimental, and field studies in support of the Department of Energy’s energy and climate research agendas. Most of the work is supported by the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) User Facility (www.arm.gov), an observations-based program that measures aerosols, clouds, precipitation, radiation, and atmospheric dynamics; the Atmospheric Systems Research Program; and the Terrestrial Ecosystem Sciences Program. This work is carried out with the ultimate goal of improving predictability and reducing uncertainty in global and regional climate models. The department’s research portfolio also includes the development of environmental technologies and applications for renewable energy, urban science, and homeland security.

The Cloud Processes Group (https://www.bnl.gov/envsci/cloud/) within the Department of Environmental and Climate Sciences is widely recognized for its state-of-the-art observation and modeling studies of microphysical and dynamical processes. that impact the lifecycle of clouds, with the goal of improving their representation in Earth system models and increasing our ability to understand and project global change.

Job Description

The Cloud Processes group has the opportunity for a postdoctoral research associate to join an exciting collaborative group spearheading innovative cloud research using modeling, observations, theoretical development, and analysis methodologies for the study of dynamic processes. , microphysical and radiative of the cloud that impact on the cloud. life cycle, particularly with a focus on aerosol-cloud-precipitation interactions. The selected candidate will have a keen interest in studying the processes that affect the life cycle of deep convective clouds using high-resolution models and/or analysis of observational data. His research will focus on the Aerosol Convection Interactions Tracking Experiment (https://www.arm.gov/research/campaigns/amf2021tracer; TRACER), a DOE ARM field campaign currently underway at the Houston, TX region. This position has a high level of interaction with an international and multicultural scientific community.

Review of applications begins immediately. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
