Postdoctoral Position: Distribution of methane emissions from gas/oil extraction

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Princeton University is seeking a postdoctoral researcher to quantify fugitive methane emissions from shale gas/oil operations in the Marcellus Shale. The researcher will be expected to lead a project to quantify the distribution of emissions from well pads by synthesizing mobile laboratory measurements, micrometeorological measurements, and large eddy simulation models. The ideal candidate will have expertise in areas such as boundary layer meteorology, large eddy simulation and Gaussian plume modeling, and atmospheric trace gas measurements. The postdoctoral researcher will work closely with the Environmental Fluid Mechanics, Atmospheric Chemistry, and Life Cycle Analyses groups within the department. Initial term of appointment is for one year with the possibility of renewal based on satisfactory performance and funding. This position is subject to the University's background check policy. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, preference will be given to candidates who apply by July 15, 2014, with a fall 2014 start date. Please indicate availability in the cover letter.

A Ph.D. in atmospheric science, physics, chemistry, environmental or mechanical engineering or related fields is required. Experience with optical field instrumentation, atmospheric boundary layer modeling and meteorology, and flux measurements are desired.

Candidates should apply online at Requisition #1400389 and submit the following items: 1) a cover letter; 2) curriculum vita; 3) a statement describing their research capabilities and how they match to the position; 4) contact information for three people who can act as a reference.

Questions about the position and the nature of the work can be addressed to, but applications emailed to this address cannot be considered. All applications must submitted through the website indicated above.

Princeton University is an equal opportunity employer and complies with applicable EEO and affirmative action regulations.
