Job Summary 	
Posting Description 	

CIRES/CSDResearch Associate

The Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) 
is seeking an innovative thinker to participate in field and laboratory 
measurements of black carbon (BC) aerosol in the atmosphere and black 
carbon particulate in snow, ice, rain, and cloud water. Black carbon is 
an important short-lived climate forcer that contributes large 
uncertainties to our understanding of the climate system. The selected 
candidate will acquire and interpret data to improve our understanding 
of black carbon in atmospheric and snow-bound processes. The candidate 
will be appointed as aCIRESResearch Associate ("Research Scientist") and 
have a strong collaboration with the Atmospheric Composition and 
Chemical Processes Group within the Chemical Sciences Division of the 
Earth System Research Laboratory of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric 
Administration. The position will be for a one-year term, renewable in 
succeeding years.

. Work with an existing team of researchers withinNOAA/ESRLto acquire 
measurements of black carbon aerosol from airborne platforms and from 
aerosolized BC-containing liquid using a single particle soot photometer 
(SP2) (see Schwarz et al., Sci. Rep., doi:10.1038/srep01356, 2013; and 
Schwarz et al., Geo. Res. Lett, doi:10.1002/2013GL057775, 2013.).
. Support the operation of instrumentation in field measurements at a 
variety of locations.
. Interpret measurements of black carbon and other species to improve 
our understanding of atmospheric processes and issues related to climate 
and global change.
. Prepare and present scientific findings in peer-review publications 
and at scientific meetings and workshops.
. Participate in the continued evaluation and improvement of black 
carbon instrumentation.

Minimum Qualifications 	

. PhD in physics, chemistry, or related field.
. Interest in using custom instrumentation to make atmospheric and 
atmospherically relevant measurements, and applying these observations 
to solve problems of contemporary interest.
. Experience with the operation of complex instrumentation.
. Experience with measurements in a field environment is a positive.
. Experience with data acquisition and interpretation.
. Experience with development and presentation of scientific results for 
meetings and for publication in scientific journals.
. Interest in both self-focused and in closely collaborative work is
