Immediate opening for a postdoctoral position in the newly funded NASA center for advance measurements in extreme environments at University of Texas, San Antonio. This is a 2 year position. Idea candidate should have background in developing atmospheric/oceanic based numerical models, strong foundation in programming, fluid dynamics, geophysics models and with a Ph.D. from Mechanical Engineering, Geosciences, Environmental or related areas. Knowledge of data fusion, sensors and field measurements is desired but not required. Responsibilities including conducting original research in Geosciences, developing models, data fusion and data synthesis, writing high quality journal publications. This is a highly collaborative project and the candidate will be working with NASA researchers, faculty from UCLA (Los Angeles), UC Boulder. Research will focus on developing atmosphere/ocean/polar ice models by integrating with sensors, observations to study extreme events in the atmosphere, ocean and environment. The position is based in San Antonio, Texas. It also involves some travel to NASA centers and to Los Angeles and Boulder.
This is an excellent opportunity for work on cross-cutting research areas of high-fidelity model development, remote sensing/sensors, data fusion, integration of models and observations. The ideal candidate should be very motivated, with strong CV, and very promising to perform high quality research.
Candidates who are interested in this position should send an email to Dr. Kiran Bhaganagar at firstname.lastname@example.org with their CV, Brief statement of Research interests and representative manuscript.
