I would like to announce an open position in the Chemical Sciences Division at NOAA Boulder to work on measurements of black carbon aerosol (see position description below). The appointment will be through the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences at CU Boulder.
For full details and to apply please see:
The Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) is seeking an innovative researcher to participate in field measurements and related analysis of black carbon (BC) aerosol in the atmosphere. Black carbon is an important short-lived climate forcer that contributes large uncertainties to our understanding of the climate system.
The selected candidate will work with NOAA instruments to acquire and interpret data from the NASA KORUS-AQ campaign, carried out in Korea in Spring of 2016. This work will be focused on improving understanding of black carbon sources, optics, and lifetime in the atmosphere. The candidate will be appointed a CIRES Research Associate and have a strong collaboration with the Atmospheric Composition and Chemical Processes Group within the Chemical Sciences Division (CSD) of the Earth System Research Laboratory of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Funding is available for three years; the position will be for a one-year term, renewable in succeeding years.
• Work with an existing team of researchers within NOAA/ESRL to acquire measurements of black carbon aerosol from airborne platforms using single particle soot photometers (SP2s) (see Schwarz et al., J. Aero. Sci. 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.
