Organic aerosols (OA) are an important fraction of fine mode atmospheric aerosols and, consequently, OA impact air quality, climate, human health, visibility, and ecosystems. Yet, the sources, evolution, properties, and impacts of OA remain uncertain. We are seeking two Postdoctoral Fellows to study the emissions, formation, and properties of OA from emerging sources (wildfires, volatile chemical products, and food cooking) and understand their contribution to air quality in urban environments. These studies will be supported by projects funded through the Environmental Protection Agency, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and National Science Foundation. Studies will include, but not be limited to: (i) data analysis and interpretation of environmental chamber and oxidation flow reactor experiments performed at CSU and partner research institutions, (ii) development and validation of chemical mechanisms and parameterizations using laboratory data to predict aerosol formation and evolution, (iii) application of Eulerian and Lagrangian box models to estimate and evaluate the photochemical evolution of urban emissions, and (iv) development and application of three-dimensional models to study source-resolved, urban and regional air quality in North America. The Postdoctoral Fellow will work extensively with collaborators, both within CSU (Chemistry, Atmospheric Science) and outside of CSU (universities, national laboratories). This is a one-year appointment with the option to renew based on performance and availability of funding.
