Job Details

Join our team! The atmospheric chemistry group at the University of Minnesota seeks applications for a Postdoctoral Associate to work with us in developing and interpreting exciting new satellite measurements of atmospheric volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from the Cross-Track Infrared Sounder (CrIS).  The postdoc will use these new datasets with the GEOS-Chem chemical transport model to study key air quality and climate issues including fossil fuel emissions, wildfires, and biosphere-atmosphere exchange.

The primary responsibilities of the position include 1) conducting research and analysis to develop new space-based VOC retrievals, and using them to better understand global emissions and their impacts on atmospheric chemistry; 2) writing and publishing results in scientific journals; 3) presenting research results at scientific meetings; 4) participating in regular meetings with supervisors and collaborative team; and 5) participating in professional development activities including DEI efforts and proposal writing.

The successful candidate will join a dynamic research group that couples measurements with modeling to examine natural and human-caused impacts on atmospheric composition. We are based at the University of Minnesota (UMN), which offers a rich and collaborative research environment with ample opportunities for professional development, in the heart of a large and diverse metropolitan area. At UMN we value having a diversity of views and experiences that enrich our campus community and foster excellence. We are dedicated to creating a campus culture that respects everyone equally. We strongly encourage applications from women, minorities, and other underrepresented groups.

Job qualifications

Required: A Ph.D. in atmospheric chemistry or related field at time of hire.

Preferred: Experience with 3D atmospheric modeling and/or atmospheric remote sensing. Strong expertise in atmospheric chemistry.
