Postdoc position in the field of carbon cycle processes

University of Oklahoma, Norman, USA

The GeoCarb Mission, led by the University of Oklahoma, is currently seeking a postdoctoral researcher for at least 1 year, and potentially 2 years based upon performance and available funding.

Job Description
The selected candidate will conduct original research on carbon cycle processes using observations from airborne and ground based trace gas observations, as well as measurements from space-borne sensors such as OCO-2, GOSAT and TROPOMI. The focus of this position will be on satellite observations, but their synergy with in situ measurements is also a key area of interest to the team. Research will also involve simulation using atmospheric chemical tracer transport models and data assimilation, whereby inference about surface emissions can be made.

Applicants should possess a PhD in atmospheric sciences, ecology, mathematics, statistics, or related fields, with published work relevant to the research being performed. The successful applicant will have strong programming experience in a scientific language. Previous experience with tracer transport modeling and flux estimation is preferred.

Interested candidates should send a CV to Dr. Sean Crowel <scrowell@ou.edu>.
References will be sought from candidates at a later date. Review of candidates will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
