dbm at umn.edu
Tue Apr 18 11:04:53 MDT 2017
The atmospheric chemistry and biometeorology group (www.atmoschem.umn.edu;
www.biometeorology.umn.edu) at the University of Minnesota has immediate
openings for two postdoctoral researchers. The successful candidates will
work as part of an interdisciplinary team to advance scientific
understanding and predictability of methane emissions from the US Upper
Midwest, a key region for the global methane budget. The work will include
analysis of ongoing, long-term measurements from the UMN tall tower and
other flux datasets, as well as new in-situ eddy-covariance measurements in
the field for wetlands, rivers, and agricultural systems.
Candidates should have a PhD in a related science or engineering field.
Analytical experience with advanced instrumentation is required. Expertise
in one or more of the following areas would be a significant asset: eddy
covariance measurements, methane measurements, agricultural emissions,
wetland dynamics, trace gas emissions, and numerical modeling.
The University of Minnesota offers a number of high-quality career
development resources for postdocs, for example through the Postdoctoral
Association for Advocacy, Career Development, and Networking (
http://www.pda.umn.edu) and the “Preparing Future Faculty” program (
addition, the research project itself will be multi-institutional and
collaborative, providing a strong opportunity for disciplinary and
cross-disciplinary development and networking.
Please email a CV, a cover letter describing your research experience,
career goals, your fit for the position, 2-3 representative publications,
and contact information for 3 references to Tim Griffis (timgriffis at umn.edu)
and to Dylan Millet (dbm at umn.edu), ATTN: Postdoctoral Search.
