Date Wed, 19 Nov 2014 22:06:23 +0000

The Stutz research group at the Joint Institute for Regional Earth System Science and the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at the University of California Los Angeles, is seeking a Postdoctoral Researcher to work in the area of remote sensing of Solar-Induced Chlorophyll Fluorescence (SIF). The successful candidate will develop and characterize a novel ground-based spectrometer system measuring chlorophyll fluorescence from natural ecosystems in the 730-770 nm wavelength region. SIF measurements will be made at various locations around the US, including one site in California, where a number of support measurements will allow the study of the carbon cycle under different environmental conditions.

The project is a collaboration between the research groups of Jochen Stutz and Ulli Seibt at UCLA, as well as various other Universities and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The candidate will be co-advised by J. Stutz and U. Seibt, as well as Dr. Christian Frankenberg from JPL.

Scientists with experience in atmospheric remote sensing, spectroscopy and/or radiative transfer are encouraged to apply. A PhD degree in a discipline such as atmospheric/environmental science, chemistry or physics is required. The initial appointment is for one year, and may be extended for a second year. Annual salary depends upon qualification, starting at $50,000.

The position is available immediately and will remain open until filled. Please send a CV with the names of three references by email to Jochen Stutz (
