The Department of Environmental Sciences at the University of Virginia invites applications for a postdoctoral research associate in atmospheric convection.

The successful candidate will conduct experiments using observations, cloud resolving models, and climate models (GCMs) to explore interactions between tropical deep convection and the larger-scale environment. The overarching goal of this work will be to (1) improve understanding of the environmental conditions and mechanisms leading to the organization and upscale growth of mesoscale convective systems in the tropics and (2) provide guidance for improved representation of interactions between deep convection and the larger-scale environment in GCMs. Observational analysis of organized convective systems will be compared to cloud resolving simulations, including simulations of convective self-aggregation. Exploring regional differences in convective onset and organization across tropical land and ocean regions will be of particular interest. Diagnostic tools for GCM evaluation regarding interactions between convection and the larger-scale environment will be developed and tested on the latest generation of CMIP6 models. The option to work remotely will be strongly considered. 

QUALIFICATION REQUIREMENTS: A PhD in Atmospheric Science, Environmental Sciences, or a related field is required by the start date. Relevant experience with satellite data analysis and modeling is required.

APPLICATION PROCEDURE: Apply online at https://uva.wd1.myworkdayjobs.com/UVAJobs and attach a curriculum vitae, a brief cover letter describing relevant experience, and contact information for three references.  Please note that multiple documents can be uploaded in the CV box. 

APPLICATION DEADLINE: Review of applications will begin on September 30, but the position will remain open until filled. The University will perform background checks on all new hires prior to employment. 

This is a one-year appointment; however, the appointment may be renewed for two additional one-year increments, contingent upon available funding and satisfactory performance.

For any questions on this position please contact Kathleen Schiro, Assistant Professor, at kschiro@virginia.edu

For questions about the application process, please contact Rich Haverstrom, Faculty Search Advisor, at rkh6j@virginia.edu
