Job description

The atmospheric remote sensing group in the Atomic and Molecular Physics Division of the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory in Cambridge, Massachusetts (USA) is seeking applicants for two post-doctoral research fellows. The fellows will perform research on atmospheric composition measurements, including those from ground-based instruments and Earth satellites. The fellows will join a vibrant research group working to design, implement, and improve atmospheric measurements of trace gases and to perform scientific research using such measurements. The project will include advancing trace gas retrieval algorithms and validating measurements made by UV/VIS instruments (OMI, GOME2, OMPS and TEMPO).

For further details on the conditions of the positions, please consult the official announcement at https://pweb.cfa.harvard.edu/opportunities/sao-employment-opportunities/posting-21-30 and https://pweb.cfa.harvard.edu/opportunities/sao-employment-opportunities/posting-21-19

For more information about the research project and application process, please contact Gonzalo González Abad (ggonzalezabad at cfa.harvard.edu).
