Post-Doc Position: Postdoctoral Position in Land-Atmospheric Interactions / Regional Climate Modeling


A postdoctoral position is immediately available in Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Science at Purdue University to investigate multiscale land-atmospheric interactions using regional climate models.

The successful candidate will work closely with Dr. Dev Niyogi, Assistant Professor and Indiana State Climatologist. The candidate will lead the application of regional climate models in support of different projects active with the group. Details regarding the group's activities can be found at the lab's website at as well as the Indiana State Climate Office at Significant opportunities also exist to work closely with Professor Roger A. Pielke Sr. and his research group at Colorado State University under joint projects.

Minimum Requirements:

A Ph.D. in Earth Atmospheric Sciences or related field is required.

Applicants must demonstrate hands-on proficiency in working with regional climate and/or weather models with a specific focus on land-atmospheric interactions.

Candidates must have demonstrated ability to work on cluster computing, with one or more weather, regional climate, and/or global climate models and program in FORTRAN and UNIX scripts. Additionally, applicants must be able to work independently and in a diverse team.

Desired Qualifications:

Experience with satellite datasets and using a combination of models, surface observations, and satellite products is preferred.
