POSITION DESCRIPTION – Candidates are sought with expertise in the 
development, evaluation, and application of
numerical air quality models related to air quality, atmospheric 
chemistry, and climate change at urban to regional scales.
The successful applicant will be expected to help lead and grow the WSU 
AIRPACT air quality forecast system operations.
The  selected  applicant  will  be  expected  to  teach graduate  and  
undergraduate  air  quality  and  environmental engineering
courses,  direct  graduate  student  research,  and  develop  a strong  
extramurally  funded  research  program.  The  position
requirements include:
1)  expertise  within  the range  of  available  urban to regional  
scale  atmospheric  chemistry  models  with applications to  air
quality, atmospheric chemistry, and/or climate change, 2) a record of 
research accomplishments as demonstrated by peer
reviewed publications and/or extramural grants, 3) demonstrated ability 
to work with diverse, interdisciplinary teams in a
collegial and collaborative manner, 4) a record of outreach, mentoring, 
or teaching to diverse student populations, and 5) an
earned Ph.D. or equivalent degree in a relevant engineering or science 
field.  In addition, experience using remote sensing
and  in  situ  observations  to  evaluate  and  improve  models and  
participation  in  the  design  and  implementation  of field
campaigns is desirable.

UNIVERSITY - Founded in 1890, Washington State University is a 
comprehensive research, land-grant institution with a
total  student  enrollment  of  approximately  27,000.  WSU has

engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines (see 
www.ADVANCE.wsu.edu). The WSU Pullman campus is located
in Pullman, WA, which is about 75 miles south of Spokane and is one of 
the largest residential universities in the West.

DEPARTMENT - The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering is 
one of five departments within the Voiland
College of Engineering and Architecture. The department has an active 
research program with approximately $7 million in
external annual funding. The department maintains teaching loads in 
undergraduate and graduate instruction at attractive
levels in order to allow time for research development and scholarly 
activities. Additional information about the department
is available at http://www.ce.wsu.edu.

The Laboratory for Atmospheric Research is an air quality and climate 
change research group with a strong reputation for
both measurement and modeling studies of air quality, atmospheric 
chemistry, and climate change (http://www.lar.wsu.edu).
There are nine faculty members in LAR, and the group collaborates with 
WSU faculty and outside scientists across a broad
range  of  topics.  The  LAR  is  a  focal  point  for measurement  and  
modeling  studies  supported  through  the Northwest  Air
Quality  Environmental  Science  &  Technology (NW-AIRQUEST)  
consortium,  which  includes  active participation  by
federal, state, and local air quality agencies throughout the Northwest 
(http://lar.wsu.edu/nw-airquest/).  In this role, LAR
is responsible for the daily operation, maintenance and development of 
the AIRPACT regional air quality forecast system

APPLICATION PROCESS - Applicants should apply online at 
https://www.wsujobs.com by submitting the following: a
cover  letter,  a  detailed  resume,  a  statement  of research  and  
teaching  interests,  and  a  list  of  five references  with  contact
information.  Screening of candidates will begin September 1, 2016, but 
applications will be accepted until the position is
