Date Wed, 13 Apr 2011 05:19:25 -0700

The Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at the University of California Los Angeles, is seeking a Postdoctoral Researcher to work in the area of remote sensing of atmospheric trace gases in the tropical upper troposphere from NASA’s Global Hawk platform. The successful candidate will participate in the deployment of a new airborne scanning limb DOAS system on NASA’s Global Hawk unmanned high-altitude aircraft during the NASA-ATTREX ( field missions in California, the eastern Pacific, and Australia. The data from these field experiments will be analyzed and interpreted to study the chemistry in the upper troposphere / lower stratosphere, with a particular focus on reactive halogens and their budget.


The project is a collaboration between the research groups of Jochen Stutz (UCLA) and Klaus Pfeilsticker, Institut für Umweltphysik, University of Heidelberg, Germany. The position is primarily at UCLA, but the candidate is expected to spend some time in Germany as well. Scientists with experience in atmospheric chemistry, spectroscopy and/or radiative transfer are encouraged to apply. A PhD degree in a discipline such as atmospheric/environmental science, chemistry or physics is required. The initial appointment is for one year, and may be extended for up to three additional years. Annual salary depends upon qualification, starting at $45,000.


The position is available immediately and will remain open until filled. Please send a CV with the names of three references by email to Jochen Stutz (
