The Jackson lab at Stanford University (jacksonlab.stanford.edu) is hiring a full-time postdoctoral scientist to characterize methane emissions from household appliances, while also measuring emissions of other pollutants such as benzene, NOx, and formaldehyde. The data will be used to evaluate the climate impact of unburned natural gas from stoves and other appliances, and to measure and model potential impacts from health-damaging pollutants that may be co-emitted with methane. We seek candidates with expertise in gas flux instrumentation, BTEX compounds, air quality, and/or toxicology. The project provides opportunities for collaboration and travel domestically and internationally for the research project and as part of a larger effort to improve understanding of sources and sinks in the global methane cycle through the Global Carbon Project (globalcarbonproject.org). Send a CV, statement of research, diversity statement, and the names and contact information for three references to: rob.jackson@stanford.edu and colinfinnegan@stanford.edu. Stanford is an equal employment opportunity and affirmative action employer.
