Assistant Research Scientist at Howard University

Principal Accountabilities:

  • Construct a GeoFLOW forcing model based on observations that will be used to evaluate the minimal model required to predict observed statistical fluctuations in the mixed layer.
  • Emulate the methods used in fixed-order codes like the NOAA Unified Forecast System (UFS) Finite Volume Cubed-Sphere (FV3) Dynamical Core or the NCAR Model for Prediction Across Scales (MPAS).
  • Examine the effects of moisture on the statistical fluctuations of the convective mixed layer without terrain.
  • Attend meetings and professional conferences to present research results and interact with collaborators and users; assist in the preparation of publications to describe results when appropriate.
  • Assist with managing research projects (e.g., research design, IRB approval, data collection, data analysis), and research products (e.g., writing, presentations)
  • Contributes to the overall development of the NCAS-M modeling program and participates in the mentorship of graduate research assistants
  • Performs complex statistical analyses which includes selecting appropriate analysis procedures, setting up data for analysis, judging the validity and reliability of data, designing, and writing programs to perform the analyses, and producing written reports on the result of the analysis
  • Publish peer-reviewed scientific papers and present results at national/international conferences.
  • Assists faculty researchers, or may act independently, in the planning and designing of research projects, establishing priorities, and recommending schedules, timetables, and costs
  • Collaborate on additional research projects within the atmospheric science research group at Howard University and across the broader scientific community.
