      Department of Atmospheric Science

    Associate Research Scientist - #4778

The Department of Atmospheric Science at the University of Wyoming has 
an opening for an individual with demonstrated capabilities and 
productivity in aerosol physics, aerosol measurement, and in analysis of 
the impact of aerosol on atmospheric radiation and chemistry. The 
successful candidate will have an earned Ph.D. in atmospheric science or 
a closely related field, will have demonstrated research capabilities, 
and will have the potential to contribute to current stratospheric 
balloon-borne measurement programs at the University of Wyoming, through 
the collection of in situ measurements and their scientific analysis. 
There are also opportunities to contribute to aircraft-borne in situ 
aerosol measurements and to work in the Keck aerosol laboratory.

The successful candidate will build upon existing stratospheric 
measurement capabilities at the University to both extend the 
University's long term measurement program, and to push it in new 
directions. The ideal candidate would be an early to mid-career 
scientist at the associate research scientist level with demonstrated 
ability to work independently, with expertise and accomplishments in 
research on stratospheric aerosol measurements and their impact on the 
atmosphere, with experience with aerosol and chemical measurements, 
especially on balloon-borne platforms, and with the capability and 
energy to lead the in situ stratospheric measurements at the University 
while promoting their scientific use in atmospheric composition and 
climate change studies. This research position is funded for one to two 
years with the potential for extension, contingent on department needs 
and resources, on accomplishments, and on success with external funding.

Applications should include a statement of research interests, and 
accomplishments, curriculum vita, and the names and contact information 
of three references. Send an electronic copy (PDF version preferred) of 
your application materials to Search Committee, Department of 
Atmospheric Science, University of Wyoming, c/o *Terry Deshler*: 
deshler at uwyo.edu <mailto:deshler at uwyo.edu>. The search committee will 
begin reviewing applications on *1 October 2013* and will continue until 
the position is filled.

The Department of Atmospheric Science is one of six in the College of 
Engineering and Applied Science, concentrating principally on research 
and graduate education, with strengths in the study of precipitation, 
cloud and aerosol physics, stratospheric aerosols and gases, boundary 
layer processes, and regional and global climate modeling. Our core 
facilities include the Stratospheric Balloon Facility, the NSF supported 
King Air research aircraft, the Keck Aerosol Laboratory, and the Mobile 
Air Quality Laboratory.
