A postdoctoral researcher position in Urban Climate Modeling is available in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. The prospective researcher will mainly focus on the influence of building infrastructure/human
activities on the dynamics of coupled heat and moisture transport in the urban atmospheric boundary layer (ABL). The postdoctoral research
associate will also address other open questions related to extreme weather and urban planning. The work will rely on a combination of large
eddy simulations and WRF modeling; experience with one or both is thus advantageous. Questions about the scope of the work can be addressed to email@example.com. Postdoc candidates should possess a Ph.D. in atmospheric sciences, geography or engineering. Excellent written English and oral communication skills are required. Interested candidates are encouraged to apply as soon as possible, the anticipated start date is February, 2020. Applicants should apply by sending (1) curriculum vitae, (2) two most representative publications, (3) a brief research proposal of 3 pages to firstname.lastname@example.org. The application will not be considered if any one of these 3 documents is missing. Review of applications will begin
immediately and continue until the position is filled. Appointment will be made initially on a contract with 18 months, renewable subject to
Salary is 26,500 HKD/month or higher which will be commensurate with qualifications and experiences. Fringe benefits including annual leave,
medical benefits and Mandatory Provident Fund (MPF) will be provided.
Outstanding mainland candidates can apply for the Hong Kong Scholars Program.
