The Cooperative Institute for Analysis in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) is looking for a motivated Postdoctoral Affiliate or Analysis Scientist to behavior analysis to know assets, chemistry and affects of reactive hint gases within the surroundings. This scientist will paintings within the NOAA Chemical Sciences Laboratory (CSL) Atmospheric Composition and Chemical Processes staff (ACCP) and can be accountable for acting measurements and research of sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxides (NO, NO2 and NOy) all through airborne science experiments together with the NOAA CSL AEROMMA challenge deliberate for the summer season of 2023. Those measurements are carried out the use of custom-built laser-induced fluorescence tools which were not too long ago evolved in ACCP, and can be deployed at the NASA DC-8 “flying laboratory”. The AEROMMA challenge will basically focal point at the faraway marine surroundings, city air high quality, and atmospheric chemistry on the interface of those city and marine environments. Those efforts are essential to advancing figuring out of atmospheric chemistry, and feature necessary implications for local weather and air high quality.
The scientist will take part in all facets of acting measurements of those species on airborne platforms together with device upkeep, enhancements, integration, calibration, operation, and data-reduction. Ongoing analysis subjects the use of those information come with figuring out assets and chemistry of sulfur and its have an effect on on aerosol and cloud formation and radiative forcing. Reactive nitrogen subjects of passion come with however aren’t restricted to atmospheric assets and destiny of NOx together with air/sea trade, roles of NOx in atmospheric oxidation and peroxy radical chemistry, quantification of lightning NOx, and synergistic use of in-situ and faraway sensing geostationary measurements. The chosen candidate will pursue novel analysis into any of those subjects the use of information got all through airborne science campaigns. The preliminary appointment is for 12 months with the opportunity of extension relying on investment and function.
The College of Colorado Boulder is dedicated to construction a culturally numerous group of school, body of workers, and scholars devoted to contributing to an inclusive campus surroundings. We’re an Equivalent Alternative employer, together with veterans and people with disabilities.
