Job description

Position in Meteorology / Atmospheric Sciences

Savannah River National Laboratory

The Savannah River National Laboratory is seeking versatile and highly motivated candidates for a full‐time position in the Atmospheric Technologies Group (ATG). The ATG conducts a comprehensive program of atmospheric research, technology development, and applied meteorology for the U. S. Department of Energy’s Savannah River Site in South Carolina. ATG’s clients include the DOE, and other U.S. government agencies with interests in national security, nuclear nonproliferation, and emergency response.

The successful candidate will be responsible for the development and application of advanced models for predicting the fate and transport of airborne contaminants. Topical areas of research include improved methods for characterizing uncertainty using model ensembles, improving model reliability through the development of novel techniques for assimilating standard and/or non‐standard sources of atmospheric data, or incorporating capabilities to account for chemical transformation of anthropogenic aerosols in models used to characterize source emissions. The selected candidate may also team with other SRNL scientists on a variety of research projects, including participation in field experiments to sample airborne releases and harmonize the resulting measurements with model predictions to improve source characterizations.

Assets supporting ATG’s operation and research programs include a comprehensive local network of meteorological towers with extensive databases, LIDAR, field deployable SODAR, a 30‐meter carbon flux tower, a 330 meter Tall Tower facility equipped for meteorological and trace gas measurements, and a dedicated high‐performance computing cluster.

Qualifications: Recent PhD graduates or post‐docs in Meteorology, Atmospheric Sciences, or appropriate engineering discipline with experience in modeling hydrodynamic systems are encouraged to apply. Familiarity with the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model system is highly desirable. Knowledge of aerosols and aerosol chemistry is also desirable. In addition, the successful candidate must possess excellent written and oral communication skills.

The SRNL is located on the U. S. Department of Energy’s Savannah River Site in South Carolina near Augusta, GA, and is operated for DOE by Savannah River Nuclear Solutions, LLC. For more information contact: Mr. Chuck Hunter, 803‐725‐2953.

Interested candidates should apply through Meteorology/Atmospheric Science SRNL then select SRNL Jobs from the Careers tab. The job number is 3311BR.

U.S. citizenship is required.
