Project Manager Positions to work with the UW King Air Research Aircraft #4519)

The Department of Atmospheric Science and Donald L. Veal Research Flight Center at the University of Wyoming is seeking applications for a Project Manager for the University of Wyoming King Air Research Aircraft (UWKA) facility including the Wyoming Cloud Radar (WCR) and Wyoming Cloud Lidar (WCL). The successful applicant will join a team of more than a dozen engineers and scientists that support the mission of UWKA as part of the project management group. Responsibilities include project planning, overseeing deployment logistics, participating as scientific crew on flights, processing and assuring quality of the resulting scientific data sets, and acting as the primary scientific representative for the UWKA during field projects. The successful applicant will be expected to join in the development of new instrumentation, calibration, and data processing methods.

Faculty Highlights

Professor Snider's areas of expertise are cloud chemistry and aerosol physics. Both endeavors have yielded results essential for understanding the response of clouds, and the atmosphere in general, to changing levels of air pollution.
Professor Zhien Wang's work centers on understanding cloud processes using remote sensing tools such as lidar and radar. He was awarded NSF five year Faculty Early Career Development grant (CAREER), NSF's most prestigious honor for young faculty members who are 'most likely to become the academic leaders of the 21st century.'
Professor Geerts' work addresses the mesoscale dynamics of precipitating systems, boundary-layer circulations over flat and complex terrain, cloud dynamics, and cloud precipitation radars. The main tools have been the Wyoming
