The Institute of Environment, Energy and Sustainability (IEES) of The Chinese University of Hong Kong is dedicated to enhancing scholarship, education, research and knowledge transfer in various areas related to the environment and energy, with particular emphasis on issues in the Hong Kong and East Asian regions. IEES is looking for several Postdoctoral Fellow(s) to participate in a research project on the impacts of climate change on atmospheric circulation, air pollution and food production, with a focus on the implications for human health in especially the East Asian region during the coming decades.

Applicants should have a relevant Ph.D. or equivalent and expertise and interest in at least one of the following areas:

  • application of a hierarchy of climate and atmospheric chemistry models for simulating air quality at different scales for health impact evaluation
  • health impact modeling, and evaluation of model output using air quality and health data
  • exposure studies based on management and analysis of air quality data collected at monitoring sites
  • emission inventory compilation for past years and future scenarios for long-term air quality model simulations
  • implementation of an adjoint model to estimate the sensitivity of pollutants to climate and atmospheric composition
  • Earth system model development to better represent soil, vegetation and crop physics and biogeochemistry, and to predict their responses to atmospheric changes
  • statistical analysis and diagnostics of observed and modeled data to project the future evolution of agriculture, air quality and climate in an integrated framework.

The appointee(s) will conduct research in the above area(s) under the supervision of Professor Gabriel Ngar-cheung Lau and/or other faculty affiliates of IEES, and perform other duties as assigned.

Appointment will be made on contract basis for two years commencing May 2016 or as soon as practicable, renewable subject to mutual agreement.

Applications and enquiries could be directed to Professor Gabriel Lau at gabriel.lau@cuhk.edu.hk. Applicants should submit their curriculum vitae (with list of publications and the name and address of three referees), as well as a one-page statement of research interests.

The original announcement can be viewed here.

National Weather Service - Intern (Monterey and other locales)

The NWS office in Monterey has an intern opening! This is a great chance for anyone who wants a job in the NWS since you will get exposure to working multiple desks plus outreach and computer programming. If there are any questions, let me know.


Meteorologist (Intern)

This position is located in the National Weather Service Division of the National Ocean and Atmospheric Administartion.

We are currently recruiting for several positions at Sonoma Technology, Inc. (STI).

We are currently working on some very exciting projects; here are some examples:

  • Air Quality Forecasting and Public Outreach. STI meteorologists issue daily weather and air quality forecasts for over a dozen cities across the U.S. These forecasts are disseminated to air quality agency websites and local and national media. STI meteorologists also develop forecast tools and provide forecast training to agencies worldwide.
  • Working with the U.S. EPA to Expand AirNow-International. AirNow-International is a suite of state-of-the-art software programs based on the highly successful AirNow program (http://www.airnow.gov/). AirNow-I facilitates air quality management and promotes public awareness of air quality issues. The first implementation of the system was completed for Shanghai, China, in advance of the 2010 World Expo (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=joljzDtA7FA). It has since been expanded to other parts of China and Mexico.
  • Weather Research for Wind Energy. STI scientists are working with U.C. Davis to improve meteorological forecasts to support real-time wind energy production decisions. As part of this project, STI staff have deployed and are now operating instruments (sodars, ceilometers, radar wind profilers, and microwave radiometers) to continuously measure meteorology in the lower troposphere. Data from these instruments will be used to improve the physical parameterizations in the weather forecast models and improve initial conditions for input into the model.
  • Air Sensor Monitoring Program for Kids. STI is developing the Kids Making Sense (http://www.kidsmakingsense.org/) program, which enables youth to perform air quality measurements and empowers them to drive positive change in their communities.
I look forward to any questions or comments you may have about our company, projects, and staff.

I hope this email finds you well. I came across your information on LinkedIn and I was inquiring if you would have any interest in hearing about a Google - Project Loon - Atmospheric Scientist (https://youtu.be/OFGW2sZsUiQ) opportunity that I have available in the Mountain View, CA area?

This is a contract to hire position, six months with potential to convert to full-time.

Project Loon requires an Atmospheric Scientist's expertise in order to steer its balloon network through the Stratosphere. The goal of this project is to improve short, medium, and long-range weather forecast capabilities in support of Project Loon.


  • Degree in Atmospheric Science or related field
  • Five plus of experience
  • Previous employment or experience with NOAA/ECMWF/NRL/NASA, etc.
  • Intimately familiar with wind modeling and common wind models (e.g. GFS)
If you are interested and would like to see the position description please email me back and I will gladly send you the description.

Thank you and have a great day,
