[Met-jobs] Project Scientist (Part Time), Micrometeorology

From Robert Rhew <>
Date Fri, 21 Feb 2014 17:29:32 -0700

Dear Colleagues,

The Department of Geography at the University of California, Berkeley seeks 
applications for a Project Scientist, Step 1 or 2, in the area of 
micrometeorological techniques at 50 percent with a start date of May 1, 2014 
ending November 1, 2014. 
Position duties:  To develop automated sampling systems based on the technique 
of Relaxed Eddy Accumulation (REA) with the purpose of measuring 
biosphere-atmosphere exchange of ppt to ppb level trace gases. These sampling 
systems will be interfaced with on-line gas chromatographic (GC) systems to 
provide continuous measurements. This project scope includes the original 
design and fabrication of the sampling system, interfacing with the GC system, 
field installation and testing, and eventually final data evaluation.  Field 
work will be conducted in forested ecosystems in Colorado and Brazil, with 
laboratory work based out of Boulder, CO. 

Basic qualifications:  A PhD or equivalent and at least two years of 
post-doctoral research experience by time of application.   Additional 
qualifications:  (1) Expertise in micrometeorological techniques, such as eddy 
covariance and REA. (2) Experience using sonic anemometry. (3) Experience in 
measuring atmospheric volatile gas phase organic compounds – including 
materials compatibility, sampling method, sample storage and analysis using gas 
chromatography. (4) Knowledge in Labview and Campbell programming. (5) 
Experience in automation and remote operation of field instruments. (6) 
Experience in field installation of equipment on towers.  (7) Record of 
peer-reviewed publications.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, CV, selected publication or writing 
sample, and the names and contact information for 3 professional referees. 

For additional details and to apply, please go to the following link:  

Applications must be received by March 31, 2014.   Please direct questions to 
Professor Robert Rhew at
