Postdoctoral Scholar in Atmospheric Chemistry

Applicants are sought for a two-year, full-time postdoctoral scholar, beginning April 1, 2013.  This scholar will participate in a large, collaborative, multi-institution field campaign (SOAS, http://wiki.envsci.rutgers.edu/, Jun 1 – Jul 15, 2013), running spectroscopic and ion chromatographic instruments focused on measurements of NOy.  Thereafter, they will analyze the field dataset in parallel with ongoing laboratory chamber experiments of SOA formation with Reed undergraduates, and in summer 2014 prepare and deploy instruments for follow-up collaborative chamber experiments at the new University of Colorado chamber facility.  This project combines high-level collaborative research with an opportunity to mentor undergraduate research, ideal for a scientist looking towards a career in teaching and research at a primarily undergraduate institution (PUI).  The group’s ongoing research is described at: http://academic.reed.edu/chemistry/fry/research.html.

The position requires a PhD in chemistry or atmospheric science. We prefer a scholar with research interests and experience in experimental atmospheric chemistry and a commitment to undergraduate education.  The postdoc will be expected to publish peer-reviewed journal articles, communicate results at regional and national meetings, and work effectively with undergraduate thesis, independent study, and summer students.  The PI will provide mentoring in PUI career preparation and building a successful undergraduate research program.

Applications should consist of a cover letter describing research experience and interests and career goals; a curriculum vita; and the names and contact information of three references. Application review will begin Feb. 1, 2013.  Please submit inquiries as well as completed applications via email to Julie Fry (fry@reed.edu).


Deadline: Feb 1, 2013
