Opening at NOAA/NWS/NCEP/EMC in Aerosol Physics

This is a Physical Scientist opening at the Environmental Modeling Center, one of the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) in the National Weather Service. The NCEP Environmental Modeling Center is seeking outstanding candidates with the following specialized experience, focusing on aerosol and atmospheric chemistry:

  • Participating in the development of one or more atmospheric chemistry models or physics Parameterizations such as atmospheric composition, aerosol-cloud- radiation interaction, subgrid scale gravity waves, planetary boundary layer turbulence, unified cloud parameterization, radiation, cloud microphysics, and stochastic physics, for earth system modeling applications, including global and regional models for air quality, weather and sub-seasonal to seasonal predictions;
  • Improving chemistry or physics for operational modeling systems, such as maintaining and upgrading physics representation and its interaction with other components of earth system models;
  • Collaborating with the scientific community to accelerate research to operational transition of advances in earth system modeling;
  • Participating in national and international research programs.
Candidates from across NOAA’s subject matter disciplines to support EMC’s move into Earth System modeling is sought. Annual mortality from poor air quality substantially exceeds mortality from all other weather phenomena in the US than all other weather events combined, and so is the focus of this announcement.
