Job description

A postdoctoral scholar position in turbulence is available at Clemson University starting fall 2022. The position is part of an NSF collaborative research project on the convective atmospheric boundary layer. The research includes both theoretical and experimental investigations. The focus is the multi-point Monin-Obukhov Similarity Theory that we developed recently. We are currently further developing the theory, and are preparing for an eight-week field measurement campaign (M2HATS) in California to obtain data to further establish the theory. (Research group website: https://nam10.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fcecas.clemson.edu%2F~ctong&data=05%7C01%7Cyyp5033%40psu.edu%7C0ed2c18e2f324cbe3ebc08da2bcc97dc%7C7cf48d453ddb4389a9c1c115526eb52e%7C0%7C0%7C637870454966523798%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C3000%7C%7C%7C&sdata=FkhXd%2Fg3HT%2BhKEaLkYhjGWkdF8DN%2B03F00tZQmL6lf4%3D&reserved=0)

Strong knowledge of turbulence is required. Research experience, especially in field measurements and data analysis in the atmospheric boundary layer, is preferred. Applicants must have a Doctorate in atmospheric sciences, mechanical engineering, or a related field. The successful candidate will play an important role in all aspects of the research and will help advise graduate and undergraduate students in the research group. The position is initially for one year with the possibility of renewal. If interested please send a current CV with a list of three references to Professor Chenning Tong at ctong@clemson.edu.
