Cloud Radar Postdoc

Company: NASA
Location: Pasadena
Posted on: January 15, 2020

Job Description:

The Jet Propulsion Laboratorys Atmospheric Physics and Weather group invites applications for a postdoctoral scholar position. The candidate will analyze data from NASA's A-Train constellation, and will utilize radiative transfer models and instrument simulators, especially for spaceborne radar and passive microwave platforms, to assess future observing systems. The A-Train data analysis examines the incidence of convective and stratiform cloud structures in frontal regions. The observing system design experiments utilize instrument simulators and Bayesian retrievals, in concert with output from an ensemble of convection resolving simulations, to assess the ability of future observing systems to measure key cloud and convective quantities, including cloud content, vertical motion, and latent heating. The selected individual will be working with other postdocs and research scientists in a highly collaborative research environment at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The appointee will be expected and encouraged to present the results of the research at conferences and in peer reviewed journal articles. The selected candidate will be mentored by Drs. Derek Posselt and Matt Lebsock (with Posselt as the primary mentor). The initial appointment will be awarded for one year, and is renewable in one-year increments depending on performance and available funding. Funding for this position is available immediately, and applications will be reviewed until the position is filled.QualificationsApplicants should have a recent PhD in atmospheric sciences, or a closely related field. The successful candidate should be highly self-motivated, and have excellent oral and written communication skills. They should have a strong background in analysis of satellite data and in the use of microwave and radar simulators, especially for the analysis of the structure, physics, and dynamics of clouds and precipitation. Particular expertise in cloud radar remote sensing and the use of Bayesian (eg, optimal estimation) retrievals is desirable. Candidates who have received their PhD within the past five years since the date of their application are eligible. Postdoctoral Scholar positions are awarded for a minimum of one-year period and may be renewed up to a maximum duration of three years. Candidates should submit the following to this site: CV, representative publications, contact information for three references, and a cover letter stating their research accomplishments and interests.
