Postdoctoral scholar opening in Jaffe research group

The Jaffe Research Group has an opening for a postdoctoral scholar who will focus on understanding gas and aerosol chemistry from global and regional sources. The position will focus on collecting, interpreting, and/or modeling observations from the Mt. Bachelor Observatory, an NSF-funded observatory that we have operated since 2004. The Mt. Bachelor Observatory operates year round to measure a suite of key gases and aerosol components (e.g., O3, CO, CO2, σscat, σabs). During spring and summer intensives, additional measurements (NOx, NOy, VOCs, aerosol chemistry, and physics) are added to focus on specific research questions.

The primary responsibilities of this position include:

  1. Leading or assisting with making high-quality observations of atmospheric constituents.
  2. Interpretation of the data with other observations, such as meteorology, regional air quality, satellite data, and air quality models.
  3. Publishing the results in top scientific journals.

The initial appointment will be for one year with possible extension. Compensation is competitive and postdocs at the University of Washington are considered faculty and receive a full benefits package. The position is based at the UW Bothell campus but will include fieldwork and significant interaction with colleagues at UW Seattle and other universities.

Qualifications

  • A Ph.D. in Chemistry, Atmospheric Sciences, Geosciences, or a related field.
  • Strong expertise in one (or more) of the following areas: instrumentation for gas and aerosol measurements (especially VOCs by GCMS), data interpretation, integration of satellite data, and/or modeling of transport and chemistry.
  • Good communication skills and experience publishing in scientific journals.

Application Instructions

To apply and see the full position description, see http://apply.interfolio.com/75597. If you have questions about the details of this search/position, please contact Professor and Division Chair Dan Jaffe at djaffe@uw.edu.

The position is available immediately and will remain open until filled.

Postdoctoral Research Associate openings

The Jaffe Research Group has openings for 1–2 postdoctoral fellows who will focus on understanding gas and aerosol chemistry from global and regional sources.

  • One position will focus on collecting and interpreting observations from the Mt. Bachelor Observatory (MBO), an NSF-funded observatory that we have operated since 2004. MBO measures a suite of key gases and aerosol components (e.g.,O3, CO, CO2, σscat, σabs) year round. During spring and summer intensives, additional measurements (NOx, NOy, VOCs, aerosol chemistry, and physics) are added to focus on specific research questions.
  • The second position will study O3, NOx, and VOC chemistry in wildfire plumes as part of the NOAA FIREX campaign.

The primary responsibilities for these positions include:

  • Making high quality observations of atmospheric constituents.
  • Interpretation of the data with other observations, such as meteorology, regional air quality, satellite data, and air quality models.
  • Publishing the results in top scientific journals.

Qualifications include:

  • PhD in Chemistry, Atmospheric Sciences, Geosciences, or a closely related field.
  • Strong expertise in one or more of the following areas: instrumentation for gas and aerosol measurements (especially VOCs by GCMS), data interpretation, integration of satellite data, and modeling of transport and chemistry.
  • Good communication skills and experience publishing in scientific journals.

Appointments will be for one year with possible extensions. Compensation is competitive and post docs receive a full benefits package.
