Postdoctoral Research Associate Position
Large-Eddy Simulation Modeling

The Computational Fluid Dynamics group at the University of Connecticut invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Associate position. The postdoctoral research associate will support an NSF-funded multidisciplinary team’s activities in developing and validating a unified convection scheme in the Community Earth System Model (CESM). The successful candidate will investigate the physics of shallow and deep atmospheric convection using the group’s large-eddy simulation (LES) model. The candidate will work with Dr. George Matheou in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and faculty and researchers at the University of California Los Angles (UCLA), the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), and the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL).

Applicants must have experience in computational modeling and high-performance computing. Experience in atmospheric modeling is desired (but not required).

The position is initially for one year with the possibility of annual renewal for two additional years.
