[Met-jobs] Postdoctoral position at Colorado State University

From "Chris O'Dell" <>
Date Thu, 25 Oct 2012 14:07:02 -0600

Dear colleagues,

My group at Colorado State University welcomes applications for a post-doc or 
early-career research scientist to perform research related to the upcoming 
Orbiting Carbon Observatory (OCO-2) mission, scheduled to launch in July 2014.  
Our group at CSU develops and applies retrieval algorithms for column-mean 
carbon dioxide concentration from satellite-based measurements of reflected 
sunlight, and uses this information to better understand processes related to 
the global carbon cycle.  This technology may ultimately provide a mechanism to 
monitor anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions in a treaty-relevant manner.  
The position will entail analyzing both simulated OCO-2 data as well as data 
currently being generated by the Greenhouse Gases Observing Satellite (GOSAT), 
with which we work strongly.  Our team collaborates extensively with both the 
NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, as well as numerous scientists around the 

The position is for a minimum of 1 year and may be renewable.  Salary is a 
minimum of $46K per year (USD), but may be higher depending on the successful 
applicant's qualifications.  For a complete position description and 
information on how to apply, please visit  

To ensure full consideration, applications should be submitted by November 16, 
2012.  The successful applicant should have a PhD in a quantitative field of 
research completed by the position start date.  If you have questions or seek 
further information related to this position, do not hesitate to contact me
