[Met-jobs] Coarse mode aerosol biogeochemistry postdoctoral position

Coarse mode aerosol biogeochemistry at Cornell University (Ithaca, NY)

The postdoctoral position will focus on characterizing the distribution and variability of coarse mode aerosols from observations and models, especially focused on anthropogenic dust, primary biogenic particles and coarse mode combustion sources.  While substantial previous work has characterized the fine mode, especially for direct radiative forcing and aerosol-cloud interactions, the coarse mode is poorly understood.   However, for some biogeochemistry questions (e.g. involving Fe, P, Ca), the coarse mode is more important than the fine mode.  The successful candidate will be able to synthesize model and observational data to better understand the mean distribution, variability, size distribution and chemical characterization of coarse mode aerosols globally. The successful applicant will demonstrate experience with numerical modeling and/or observational datasets and will have a record of publications in peer-reviewed literature. They should hold a Ph.D. in atmospheric science, engineering or a related field. Applicants should send an email directly to mahowald@cornell.edu.  Applications will be processed until position is filled. Cornell University is an Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer and we strongly encourage applications from women and minorities.
