The atmospheric chemistry and biometeorology group (www.atmoschem.umn.edu; www.biometeorology.umn.edu) at the University of Minnesota has immediate openings for two postdoctoral researchers. The successful candidates will work as part of an interdisciplinary team to advance scientific understanding and predictability of methane emissions from the US Upper Midwest, a key region for the global methane budget. The work will include analysis of ongoing, long-term measurements from the UMN tall tower and other flux datasets, as well as new in-situ eddy-covariance measurements in the field for wetlands, rivers, and agricultural systems.

Candidates should have a PhD in a related science or engineering field. Analytical experience with advanced instrumentation is required. Expertise in one or more of the following areas would be a significant asset: eddy covariance measurements, methane measurements, agricultural emissions, wetland dynamics, trace gas emissions, and numerical modeling.

The University of Minnesota offers a number of high-quality career development resources for postdocs, for example through the Postdoctoral Association for Advocacy, Career Development, and Networking (http://www.pda.umn.edu) and the “Preparing Future Faculty” program (https://cei.umn.edu/support-services/preparing-future-faculty/). In addition, the research project itself will be multi-institutional and collaborative, providing a strong opportunity for disciplinary and cross-disciplinary development and networking.

Please email a CV, a cover letter describing research experience, career goals, your fit for the position, 2-3 representative publications, and contact information for three references to Tim Griffis, timgriffis@umn.edu and to Dylan Millet, dbm@umn.edu, ATTN: Postdoctoral Search.
