Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory has an opening for a Postdoctoral Researcher to conduct independent research using observations of boundary-layer meteorology for a variety of applications: quantifying wind turbine-atmosphere interactions, studying wind flow over complex terrain (e.g., katabatic/anabatic winds), atmospheric stability, surface carbon and energy flux exchanges, and other boundary layer processes for national security applications. You will work with a multi-disciplinary team of scientists, including atmospheric modelers, operate and deploy LLNL’s suite of in situ and remote sensing instrumentation in the field (e.g., profiling lidars, scanning lidar, flux towers), and independently analyze complex observational datasets to answer key boundary-layer meteorology science questions. This position is in the Atmospheric Flow, Transport and Hazard Assessment Group of the Atmospheric, Earth and Energy Division (AEED). Start date is flexible. Can be winter or spring of 2021.
