Forwarded from CLIMLIST... Postdoc positions in satellite and aircraft UV/Visible remote sensing of trace gases and scientific analysis We are seeking several motivated postdoctoral fellows to analyze satellite and aircraft UV/Visible spectra for retrieving atmospheric ozone and other trace gases, and to perform and participate in scientific process studies with the results. Instruments include OMI, GOME-2, SCIAMACHY, and OMPS, and aircraft instruments ACAM (during the DISCOVER-AQ mission) and GEO-TASO (to be developed under the funding of the NASA Instrument Incubator Program). Gases include ozone profiles and tropospheric ozone, HCHO, BrO, IO, NO2, CHOCHO, H2O, SO2, and OClO. The research involves improving atmospheric spectral fitting, inversion, radiative transfer modeling, and instrument calibration, validating satellite/aircraft measurements, and using satellite/aircraft retrievals to investigate the spatiotemporal distribution, sources, sinks, transport, and transformations of atmospheric trace gases. The applicant must have a Ph.D. in atmospheric science, meteorology, physics, or a related field and should have a strong background in remote sensing of atmospheric trace gases, radiative transfer modeling, and/or analysis of satellite measurements of trace gases. Excellent programming skills (e.g., FORTRAN) and shell scripting under Unix/Linux environments, and extensive plotting and mapping capability are crucial. Good oral and written communication skills in English as demonstrated by a publication record are also required. The work will be conducted at Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA. The tentative start date is September 1, 2011 but is negotiable. The initial appointment is for 2 years with the possibility of renewal. To apply, applicants should send a CV, a letter of motivation, and a list of relevant publications to Dr. Kelly Chance (<firstname.lastname@example.org>) or Dr. Xiong Liu (<email@example.com>). ------------------------------------------------------ Dr. Xiong Liu Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics 60 Garden Street, MS-50 Cambridge, MA 02138 USA Web: http://www.cfa.harvard.edu/atmosphere/
