ASSISTANT RESEARCH PROFESSOR
An assistant research professor position is available in the study of the fluxes and transport of greenhouse gases. The positions will focus on analyses of airborne measurements intended to quantify and reduce uncertainty in atmospheric inversions caused by atmospheric transport, and improve quantification of regional-scale CO2 and CH4 emissions. The successful candidate will analyze aircraft data with an ensemble numerical modeling system incorporating uncertainties in both atmospheric transport and greenhouse gas fluxes and boundary conditions. The work will contribute to the Atmospheric Carbon and Transport - America (ACT-America) study, a 5-year, NASA-funded Earth Venture Suborbital mission led by Prof. Kenneth Davis. The successful candidate should have a strong background in one or more of the following areas: numerical weather modeling and data assimilation, statistics, inverse methods, carbon cycle science, boundary layer meteorology and aircraft data analyses. Strong communications skills, a Ph.D. in atmospheric sciences or a related field, and at least 2 years of postdoctoral research experience are required.
The ability to contribute to research and data management, and to assist project graduate students and postdoctoral fellows is beneficial. This is a 48 week, fixed-term 1 position, funded for one year from the date of hire, with excellent possibility of refunding. The salary will be commensurate with experience, and will comply with The Pennsylvania State University guidelines. To apply, please upload a current CV, a cover letter, the names and addresses of three references, and a brief statement of research interests and long-term goals.
Applications received by August 30, 2018 will receive full consideration. Applicants should provide evidence, either woven through their application materials or as a separate diversity statement, of a commitment to fostering diversity, equity, inclusive excellence, and belonging and of engagement which creates an inclusive environment in their department/workplace..
