  • Postdoctoral Research Positions

    Ithaca, NY
    Posted:

    Postdoc #1, supervised by Prof. Esteban Gazel, requires a completed PhD in Geochemistry, Materials Science, Mineralogy or related fields, analytical skills for micro-nano materials measurements demonstrated with peer-reviewed publications. Preferred qualifications for postdoc #1 include experience with TEM, SEM, XRD, and spectroscopy (e.g, FTIR). Postdoc #1 will work on the in-situ characterization (e.g., SEM, TEM, FTIR) of morphology, chemical composition, and spectroscopy signatures of volcanic ash and aerosols materials from chemically representative eruptions to understand their long-term impact in climate and ocean productivity.

    Apply

    Postdoc #2 will be supervised by Prof. Matt Pritchard and a completed Ph.D. in volcanology, remote sensing, or a related field is required. Postdoc #2 will use a variety of remote sensing techniques to observe volcanic ash as well as monitoring data to understand eruption precursors.

    Apply

    The postdocs will work closely together along with atmospheric scientists led by Prof. Natalie Mahowald and collaborators around the world, including the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. There will be opportunities for fieldwork to collect ash samples and produce field measurements. Review of applications begins on June 15, 2020 and while the start date is negotiable, we prefer a start by 1 January 2021. The position is for one year and is renewable, contingent on funding and performance. To apply, please send a curriculum vitae, statement of research interests, and the names of at least three professional references to Academic Jobs Online: https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/16383. For more information contact: For postdoc #1:Esteban Gazel egazel@cornell.edu; For postdoc #2: Matt Pritchard, pritchard@cornell.edu.  Cornell University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer and Educator.

  • Post Doctoral Positions at Cornell University

    Ithaca, NY
    Posted:

    Applications are sought for two Post Doctoral Associates to join a vibrant and inter-disciplinary research team focused on atmospheric science and renewable energy applications. Successful applicants will participate in two projects funded by the U.S. Department of Energy. They will be supervised by Professor Sara C. Pryor (Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences) and will collaborate closely with Professor Rebecca J. Barthelmie (Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering).

    The first position is focused on climate dynamics and downscaling of sustained and gust wind speeds using both numerical and statistical approaches, and diagnostic evaluation of model performance and skill. Familiarity with statistical methods is essential and experience with WRF, MATLAB, and high-performance computing is desirable. 

    Apply

    The second position is focused principally on simulations of wakes within and downstream of large offshore wind turbine arrays using meso- and micro-scale models. Familiarity with WRF is essential. Experience with microscale computational fluid dynamics models and high-performance computing, plus understanding of wind turbine wakes is desirable. 

    Apply

    Successful applicants will hold a Ph.D. in atmospheric science, engineering or related subject. Excellent written and verbal communication skills are highly desirable. Applications received by 1 May 2020 will receive full consideration. Preferred start dates are 1 June 2020, but may be extended to 15 August 2020 for exceptional candidates. Initial appointments will be for 1 year with the possibility of renewal. Applications will only be accepted via Academic Jobs Online.
