ANNOUNCEMENT NO: LA19D0009
POSITION: Research Physical Scientist, AST, Atmospheric Chemistry and Dynamics, GS-1301-13/14, promotion potential to GS-14
LOCATION: Science Directorate, NASA Langley Research Center. Hampton, Virginia
OPENING DATE: December 10, 2018
CLOSING DATE: January 07, 2019
The Chemistry and Dynamics Branch within the Science Directorate (SD) is seeking an individual to serve as an Aerosol Scientist supporting SAGE-III. The scientist will lead or contribute to tasks related to the development, understanding, characterization, validation and improvement of data products derived from limb observations made by instruments such as SAGE III/ISS.
* The scientist will lead or contribute to tasks related to the development, understanding, characterization, validation and improvement of data products derived from limb observations made by instruments, such as, SAGE III/ISS.
* Interprets sub-orbital and/or satellite remote sensing measurements of the atmosphere related to regional and global change phenomena, developing and/or validating pioneering remote sensing data retrieval techniques.
* Supports the development, operation, data reduction and validation of SAGE-related aerosol measurements in the stratosphere and upper troposphere using data from other in-situ and/or on-orbit instrumentation.
* Independently leads research focusing on formulation of new concepts and developing scientific theories and methodologies.
* Produces and evaluates data sets that form the backbone of assessments of local-to-regional-to-global processes that affect atmospheric constituents, and/or the trend and long-term variability of key components of the troposphere and stratosphere.
* Develops new and improved measurement techniques, enabling hardware and software technologies for future satellite and/or suborbital missions.
* Leads identification of crucial limitations in the current state-of-the-art techniques, practices, and component performance and devises innovative improvements or alternatives that can overcome or bypass current limitations.
* As Principal or Co-Investigator, the researcher provides scientific support for SD missions, leads or contributes to proposal efforts to competitively obtain funding for research projects aligned with NASA strategic goals and objectives.
* The researcher collaborates with internal and external investigators employing analysis methods, models and remote sensing information to derive regional-to-global distributions and properties of atmospheric trace constituents.
* Publishes scientific results and other contributions in refereed journals and present results at science team meetings and at national and international conferences and workshops.
Occasional travel - Travel may be required for training or other work-related duties.
