Postdoctoral Associate - Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences
The Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Cornell University seeks two postdoctoral research associates to work on a new NASA-funded interdisciplinary project spanning volcanology, remote sensing, and atmospheric sciences to study volcanic ash and its impact on the Earth system.
Postdoc #1, supervised by Prof. Esteban Gazel, will work on the in-situ characterization (e.g., SEM, TEM, FTIR) of morphology, chemical composition, and spectroscopy signatures of volcanic ash and aerosols materials from chemically representative eruptions to understand their long-term impact in climate and ocean productivity.
Postdoc #2, supervised by Prof. Matt Pritchard, will use a variety of remote sensing techniques to observe volcanic ash as well as monitoring data to understand eruption precursors.
The postdocs will work closely together along with atmospheric scientists led by Prof. Natalie Mahowald and collaborators around the world, including the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. There will be opportunities for fieldwork to collect ash samples and produce field measurements.
A completed Ph.D. in volcanology, remote sensing, spectroscopy, material characterization, or a related field is required. Review of applications begins on June 15, 2020 and while the start date is negotiable, we prefer a start by 1 January 2021. The position is for one year and is renewable, contingent on funding and performance.
