Job description

CIRES/ NOAA CSL Aerosol Mass Spectrometer Research Scientist

Requisition Number: 29168
Location: Boulder, Colorado

Job Summary

The Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) at CU Boulder encourages applications for a Research Scientist within NOAA’s Chemical Sciences Laboratory (CSL) in Boulder, Colorado. The successful candidate will work in the Tropospheric Chemistry program alongside a number of federal and university employees engaged in research investigating trace gases and aerosol particles and their impacts on air quality and climate. Our group develops and uses world-class instrumentation to measure these species and deploys these instruments on aircraft and at field sites.
 
This position requires continuing and expanding research regarding the chemical composition of aerosol particles, as well as incorporating trace gas and aerosol physical information to understand aerosol sources, formation and growth, and other chemical and physical processes in the troposphere. Individuals without an aerosol science background, but with relevant laboratory experience, are strongly encouraged to apply. CSL has a collaborative lab culture, and we are looking for a candidate who actively subscribes to this philosophy. Successful candidates will demonstrate competency and sensitivity in working in a diverse community.


The University of Colorado Boulder is committed to building a culturally diverse community of faculty, staff, and students dedicated to contributing to an inclusive campus environment. We are an Equal Opportunity employer, including veterans and individuals with disabilities.

Responsibilities

  • Operate instrumentation to measure the chemical and physical properties of aerosol particles, especially aerosol mass spectrometer instruments.
  • Operate and optimize aerosol calibration systems and apply the calibrations to field data.
  • Independently operate these instruments, calibration systems, and other instruments in the laboratory and in the field.
  • Periodic travel for several weeks at a time is required.
  • Analyze and interpret data collected by these instruments.

Required

  • Ph.D. in chemistry, physics, atmospheric sciences, environmental engineering, or a closely related field.
  • Present results at scientific meetings and publish them in peer-reviewed literature.
