    Post-Doc Research Opportunity at NOAA's Earth System Research Laboratory:

    Wind and Solar Energy Siting Optimization

    This opportunity involves assisting with an ongoing research project to optimize the siting of wind and solar energy projects using high-resolution numerical weather model data over multiple years. The literature contains work on relatively low penetration wind and/or solar power integration into the US grid. However, analysis and optimization of high penetration levels of renewable energy in the United States is lacking. This research has the potential to lead to multiple journal publications. In addition to the physical parameters of wind and solar radiation, this study will also optimize based on project economics. Computational work for this project is being done using a NOAA owned supercomputer, and the Associate will be working at the NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory in Boulder, CO. This project spans several disciplines and technical areas: mathematical optimization, coding (Python, FORTRAN, Linux), supercomputing, meteorology, renewable energy generation, electricity transmission, large-scale energy storage, GIS, and project finance/economics. Applicants are not expected to be expert, or even experienced in all of these areas, but having academic training or practical experience in many of these areas will be beneficial to the project and increase likelihood of success.

    The research program will start around October - December of 2011, and will be funded for two years under the National Academies NRC Research Associates Program. This position may be of special interest for GW post-docs from Engineering Management, or Systems Engineering programs.

    Emerging Leaders' Extraction and Environment Program

    Qualifications: Graduate students, junior faculty and professionals encouraged to apply.

    Applications are now being accepted for participation in this unique leadership training program, a program which focuses on training emerging young US leaders from the public, private and nonprofit sectors in strategies for handling the complex societal, economic and environmental challenges which arise from the extraction of natural resources.

    The Emerging Leaders' Extraction and Environment Program (E-LEEP) will be hosted by the University of Ghana in Accra, Ghana in July, 2011. The program is offered via a partnership between the University of Ghana and Duquesne University's School of Leadership and Professional Advancement, with support from a grant from the U.S. State Department.

    The program will include a combination of classroom lectures, site visits and field trips, guest speakers and social events, all of which will contribute heavily to the participants' understanding of natural resource extraction while simultaneously providing them with an extremely valuable opportunity to be exposed to a country and culture other than their own. Program scholarships cover participants' program fees, airfare, and lodging and will also include a modest per diem amount for meals.

    "While at first look it might appear that there are few parallels between concerns in a developing African country and those in mature industrial region in the US, in reality the patterns of investment, economic gain and cost, community impact and environmental effects are remarkably consistent," said Dr. Dorothy Bassett, Dean of the School of Leadership and Professional Advancement. "US participants will not only help in shaping the future direction of natural resource extraction in Ghana, they will also expand their knowledge and leadership skills that can be applied to their roles in the US."

    Please visit the program Web site at www.duq.edu/eleep for details on tuition, application requirements and additional program details.
