Post Doctorate RA B - Modelling atmospheric ice-nucleating particle sources and concentrations

RICHLAND, WA


Job Description

Job ID: 308090
Full/Part Time: Full-Time
Regular/Temporary: Temporary

Job Description

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) is recruiting a creative, energetic, and collaboration-oriented postdoctoral scientist for a project that will build process-level understanding of the factors controlling the concentration of ice-nucleating particles (INPs) in marine air. The successful candidate will blend modeling of atmospheric transport with analysis of INP and aerosol measurements, remote sensing, and other data sources, to attribute sources of variability in observed INP concentrations in marine air.

The successful candidate will be expected to publish scientific results in peer-reviewed journals, to interact directly with a rich network of experts in areas such as atmospheric processes, surface-atmosphere interactions, modelling, and observations, and to effectively communicate research results at conferences and workshops.
