Research Associate I Position in Ice Nucleation

The Department of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University invites applicants for a research associate (RA) I position with Drs. Jessie Creamean and Thomas Hill in the Kreidenweis/DeMott research group. Drs. Creamean and Hill are the ice-nucleating particle (INP) mentors of the Department of Energy’s Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (DOE ARM) program, whereby their main task under this position is to collect aerosol samples for offline laboratory analysis at specified DOE ARM sites to provide robust, publicly-available INP data for observational and modelling usage by researchers within the scientific community.

The position will be based in Fort Collins, Colorado, where the successful candidate will work with Drs. Creamean and Hill to: 1) construct a new ice nucleation instrument called the Ice Spectrometer (IS); 2) process aerosol samples for INP measurements using the new IS; 3) organize shipment of materials, supplies and collected samples; and 4) process raw data and assist with compilation of data summaries. The position is funded by DOE ARM.

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

To ensure full consideration, applications should be submitted by 11:59 p.m. Sunday, April 18, 2021.
