*Postdoctoral Position in Atmospheric Chemistry/Physics at NCAT*
*Qualifications*: PhD in Experimental Atmospheric Chemistry/Physics or
related areas (Environmental Chemistry, Chemical engineering, Chemistry)
with experience in aerosol optical and chemical properties research and
operation of smog chambers and lasers.
Other expected skills: LabVIEW programing, Igor Programing. Modeling
experience will be desirable.
The selected candidate expected to conduct research, mentor and supervise
graduate students, get involved in proposal writing and coordinate student
training and collaborations among North Carolina A&T State University,
Colorado State University, Howard University and Aerodyne. The
collaborating institutions will perform research that include: (1)
Controlled laboratory measurements of optical properties of biomass burning
(BB) aerosols as a function of photochemical aging, burning and
meteorological conditions using the NCAT facility; (2) the implementation
of updated smoke emission factors and optical properties measured at NCAT
in the GEOS-Chem chemical-transport model to produce better estimates of
the health and climate impacts of smoke; (3) collection of filter samples
of dust-smoke mixtures aboard the NOAA research vessels, to measure the
optical properties of these aerosol mixtures and estimate the contributions
from biomass smoke. (4) Students participation in biomass-burning related
field work in summer 2019 following a visit to Aerodyne in late 2018 and
2019 to be trained on the operation of their instrumentation and
installation ahead of the summer 2019 FIREEX-AQ campaign. A candidate with
experience on as many of the projects listed above will receive priority.
*Salary*- Competitive with full benefits available to NC University System
*Position* for 1-year renewable for a second year.
