Air Quality Technician Position

The Department of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University invites applicants for a Research Associate I position in Professor Jeff Collett’s research group. The Collett group conducts experimental investigations of atmospheric chemistry and air quality. Group research projects focus on issues ranging from air quality impacts of unconventional sources (oil and gas development, agriculture, wild and prescribed fires) to cloud processing of aerosols and soluble trace gases. The group conducts air quality field campaigns in local communities, in national parks, and around the world. In addition to field measurements of aerosols, trace gases, and clouds/fogs/precipitation, the group conducts extensive chemical analyses in the laboratory, analyzes collected data, and communicates findings to a wide range of stakeholders, including local governments, industry representatives, state and federal policymakers, and other scientists.

This position will be based in Fort Collins, Colorado, where the full-time laboratory technician/CSU research associate will assist in the planning and execution of air quality field campaigns, including preparation of sampling materials, collection of air samples (trace gases, particles, and fog/precipitation) in the field, and chemical analysis of those samples in the laboratory.  

For complete position announcement details, qualification requirements and to apply electronically, please visit the online posting on the CSU jobs website.

To ensure full consideration, applications should be submitted by 11:59 p.m. MDT Sunday, Aug. 22.

Colorado State University is an EO/EA/AA employer and conducts background checks on all final candidates.
