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. This could be an exciting opportunity for a
senior-level student or early-career scientist with an interest in
satellite remote sensing. 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 a great deal. Our team
collaborates extensively with both the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory,
as well as numerous scientists around the world. 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,
please contact me directly, and I look forward to hearing from you!
