*Postdoctoral Research Associate at Princeton: Understanding sources of 
tropospheric ozone variability and trends*

Princeton University Program in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences seeks 
an enthusiastic postdoctoral researcher to participate in modeling and 
observational studies of tropospheric ozone variability and trends. 
During the first year, the successful candidate will analyze intensive 
measurements from the 2017 Fires, Asian, and Stratospheric Transport - 
Las Vegas Ozone Study (FAST-LVOS), in conjunction with high-resolution 
global chemical transport models, to fingerprint the specific sources of 
high surface ozone events in the Las Vegas area and across the western 
United States. The candidate will work with Dr. Meiyun Lin 
<https://www.gfdl.noaa.gov/meiyun-lin-homepage/>, the Principal 
Investigator of the project, to estimate the importance of deep 
stratospheric intrusions and long-range transport of Asian pollution 
relative to US regional anthropogenic pollution and wildfires.During the 
second year, contingent upon satisfactory performance, the candidate 
will assist in a process-oriented study to assess how well the global 
models used in phase 1 of the IGAC/Chemistry-Climate Model Initiative 
<http://www.igacproject.org/CCMI>(CCMI) represent observed interannual 
variability and long-term trends of tropospheric ozone at northern 
mid-latitudes over the past 20-40 years. The postdoctoral researchers 
will also have opportunities to interact with other researchers at NOAA 
Geophysical Physical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory and Earth System Research 

The candidate must have a PhD, preferably in atmospheric chemistry.A 
good knowledge in air quality-climate modeling, strong statistical 
skills, and experience in joint analysis of observations and models to 
improve understanding will be appreciated. Postdoctoral appointments are 
initially for one year with the renewal for subsequent years based on 
satisfactory performance and continued funding. A competitive salary is 
offered commensurate with experience and qualifications.

Applicants must apply online.Complete applications,**including**a CV, 
copies of 2-3 recent publications, names of three referees who will be 
providing letters of support, and a titled research proposal, should be 
submitted to https://www.princeton.edu/acad-positions/position/701 no 
later than April 10, 2017, for full consideration. This position is 
subject to the University’s background check policy.

Princeton University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer 
and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment 
without regard to age, race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, 
gender identity or expression, national origin, disability status, 
protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.

Thank you.
