The Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP) at The University of Colorado at Boulder, is seeking a post‐doctoral researcher to take a leading role in the development of in novel situ instrumentation for a joint US-European long duration scientific balloon mission called Stratéole 2.

Stratéole 2 will study the chemistry, dynamics and meteorology of the TTL and lower stratosphere through novel quasi‐ Lagrangian measurements. This is a ground-breaking campaign and will be the first long duration instrumented balloon constellation to be deployed at the equator. The focus of the LASP contribution to this mission is to make high‐resolution profile measurements of the temperature structure of the TTL and characterize the phase speed spectrum of fine scale atmospheric waves for the first time. Furthermore, we will examine the role of thermal structure in the dehydration of the TTL and the formation of ice particles from wave driven temperature fluctuations.

We are seeking a candidate with a PhD in Atmospheric Science or related physical science or engineer discipline, preferably with experience in one or more of these fields: atmospheric instrument development, measurements from airborne platforms, fiber optic distributed temperature sensing, analysis of in situ measurement data or high altitude ballooning.
