A postdoctoral research position is available at the University of Michigan in the research group of Prof. Kerri Pratt in the Department of Chemistry and Department of Earth & Environmental Sciences. Our research interests focus on the chemical interactions of atmospheric trace gases, particles, clouds, and precipitation with the cryosphere and biosphere to understand processes associated with air quality and climate change. The successful candidate will play a leadership role in several, interdisciplinary research projects, primarily focused on atmospheric chemistry in the Arctic and northern Michigan through field-based measurements. In particular, the position will include assisting in the construction of a single-particle mass spectrometer and use of a chemical ionization mass spectrometer. While in the Pratt lab, the successful candidate will also have opportunities to be exposed to ion chromatography, additional mass spectrometry methods, one-dimensional atmospheric modeling, and electron microscopy. The successful candidate is expected to have a PhD in chemistry, chemical engineering, atmospheric science, environmental science, or a related area. The successful candidate should have prior experience with mass spectrometry and/or instrument development and data analysis programs (Igor and/or Matlab preferred). Familiarity with LabView and experience conducting field measurements is preferred, as well as interest in mentoring undergraduate and young graduate students. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to collaborate with several environmental chemistry groups across the University of Michigan (e.g., Department of Environmental Health Sciences and Department of Atmospheric, Oceanic, and Space Sciences). The position is expected to be for two years; initial appointment will be for one year, with likely renewal, pending demonstrated progress. Preferred start date is in summer or early fall 2014. To apply, please send a cover letter (describing your research experience and interests, as well as anticipated date of availability), CV, and names/contact information for 3 references to Prof. Kerri Pratt, email: prattka at umich.edu.
