2 postdoc opportunities with WRF and WRF-CHEM in Abu Dhabi

Postby marouane » Fri Dec 04, 2015 5:04 am

POSITION 1
Postdoctoral position in mesoscale weather modeling to enhance fog forecast

Masdar Institute of Science and Technology in Abu Dhabi, UAE, invites applications for a postdoctoral position to deploy an operational weather forecast model to predict fog formation and dispersion in the region.
The successful candidate will use Masdar-based HPC and will contribute to deploying and maintaining a radiometer profiler. The work will focus on a) fog nowcasting using the ground-based radiometer and b) enhancing the existing version of WRF through the assimilation of remote sensing observations.
This effort is sponsored by the aviation sector and other end-users in the region with the goal of deploying a comprehensive fog monitoring and forecasting system during the next four years. Masdar Institute is a research driven graduate level institute based in Abu Dhabi http://www.masdar.ac.ae/.
The position offers a very competitive tax-free salary package (starting from $83K/year), full health insurance coverage that includes dependents, one economy class airline ticket annually to the home country, and one month salary annual gratuity. The position will be for an initial period of 12 months that is extendable.
Review of applications begins immediately. Anticipated appointment date is in early 2016.
Applications must include a cover letter which includes the names and contact information of three references, a CV including list of publications, and statement of research interests. The applicant can include examples of relevant publications.

POSITION 2: Postdoctoral position in air quality modeling using WRF-CHEM

Masdar Institute of Science and Technology in Abu Dhabi, UAE, invites applications for a postdoctoral position to deploy an operational forecast of gas and aerosol with WRF/CHEM in the UAE supported with satellite remote sensing monitoring.
The successful candidate will use Masdar-based HPC and will have access to observations from the UAE in situ air quality network. Plus, the candidate will be trained to use the SEM/EDX for dust morphological and elemental analysis. The work should lead to the forecast of surface PM2.5 and PM10 and trace gases concentrations. There is also interest in assessing the impact of aerosols on visibility and solar radiation as well.
This effort is sponsored by the aviation sector and other end-users and government agencies in the region with the goal of monitoring air quality and assessing its environmental and health impact in the UAE.
