Scholarship Opportunity: Postdoctoral Fellowship at Geophysical Institute, University of Alaska Fairbanks

Job Description
A postdoctoral position is available to join a growing research group working in the area of Arctic aerosol assessment using a variety of modern remote sensing and in-situ measurement techniques, and numerical modeling methods. The primary responsibility associated with this full time funded position is to conduct research to assess temporal and spatial variations of anthropogenic water vapor emissions in the Arctic. Research tasks will include modeling of the respective microphysics and related visibility constraints due to ice fog. Candidates need to have a strong background in physics, and extensive IT and programming skills. The position is aimed to improve the capabilities of the Weather Research and Forecast (WRF) model to simulate the microphysics of point sources of water vapor in an Arctic environment.

If you have questions regarding the position, please contact Dr. Martin Stuefer at the Geophysical Institute at University of Alaska Fairbanks, (907) 474-6477 or email:

If you have questions about applying online, please contact Farra Smith, HR Consultant, Geophysical Institute, University of Alaska Fairbanks, (907) 474-5511 or e mail: The University of Alaska Fairbanks is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.

Expertise in numerical modeling, and ability to conduct field measurements under Arctic conditions. A strong background in physics is required; previous experience in atmospheric science and/or water vapor microphysics is a plus. In addition extensive programming skills are necessary; Sufficient relevant experience to contribute significantly to a specific project; Strong interpersonal and communication skills.
