Student & Postdoc Opportunities

My research group has an opening for a student “research data analyst”.  This person would  analyze large datasets containing observations of Earth’s atmosphere.  The initial task involves tracking vortices that produce severe floods in the tropics and optimizing the fluid dynamical metrics used in this tracking.  Depending on the candidate’s interest and abilities, the position could evolve to include management of large data stores on supercomputing clusters, design of real-time algorithms for storm tracking, and dissemination of results via web portals.  Hours are flexible.  Candidate must have experience working in a Linux computing environment and using either Matlab or Python (other data analysis languages may also be suitable).
Prospective graduate students are encouraged to apply for admission to our doctoral program.  Interested candidates are welcome to contact me directly, though I cannot guarantee a reply due to the number of inquiries.

Candidates for postdoctoral positions are encouraged to contact me directly with a CV and a statement of research interests.  My group works on a wide range of topics, including tropical atmospheric dynamics, climate dynamics, land surface processes, radiative transfer, and tropical rainfall prediction.  New fields of expertise that complement our existing specialties are always welcome.  Postdoctoral fellowships are periodically available through the Yale Institute for Biospheric studies and our department.
