十大外围app: 3. Postdoctoral Appointee
The Environmental Science Division (EVS) conducts basic and applied research and assessment that seek to understand how natural and human-managed environmental systems function and how system components respond to various perturbations. EVS studies the environmental effects of conventional and renewable energy development and use. We operate the Southern Great Plains Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) site for the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Science.
A PhD in Meteorology, Atmospheric Science, applied mathematics, computer science, engineering or a related field.
- Considerable knowledge of convective scale dynamics and microphysics.
- Considerable skills in working with scanning radar data. Preferably at C- and S-Band wavelengths.
- Considerable analytical abilities including working with large data sets (willingness to learn Python).
- Some knowledge of the workings of convective parameterizations in climate models.
- Some exposure to radiative transfer and radiometry.
- Good communication and collaborative skills.
- Experience with version control systems (git) and social coding (GitHub) is desirable.
- Some experience mapping problems to large computational frameworks is desirable (e.g. Python Multiprocessing or Jupyter clusters, Cassandra databases, etc.)
- A keenness to learn and a sense of excitement about meteorological and weather phenomena are essential.

十大外围app: 5. Research Fellow - Climate Solutions
Previous Drawdown Fellows developed solution-specific models, technical reports, and policy memos projecting the financial and climate impacts of ‘state-of-the-shelf’ solutions deployed at scale over the next thirty years. Fellows in the 2016 Fellowship will build out the second phase of research, analysis, and modeling of Drawdown solutions. Fellows will evaluate and augment the initial research conducted by previous Drawdown Fellows, collect additional data as needed, revise and refine model methodology as needed, and integrate individual solution models.
? Master’s degree required, PhD or equivalent work experience preferred.
? 5+ years of experience in sustainability, renewable energy, energy efficiency, bio-sequestration, agriculture, international development, sharing economy, or related field
? Experience in quantitative analysis, data modeling or econometrics required
? Strong research, analysis and writing skills. Demonstrated ability and commitment to conduct research and produce scholarly work.
? Experience with preparing clear, compelling, and high-quality reports and presentations
? Project management skills, capable of meeting deadlines.
? Interest in and ability to work remotely, yet in collaboration with a team of researchers in different time zones. Comfort with teleconferencing technologies. Ability to participate in videoconferences between the hours of 9:00am – 12:00 pm Pacific Time.
