The Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory in Palisades, New York, is seeking a Postdoctoral Research Scientist to join its Atmospheric Chemistry Group (https://atmoschem.ldeo.columbia.edu/), under the mentorship of Professor Arlene Fiore and Dr. Dan Westervelt (https://www.ldeo.columbia.edu/~danielmw/), within the Lamont research community. The project involves collaboration with scientists in the Mailman School of Public Health, Ecology Evolution and Environmental Biology, Electrical Engineering and the Data Sciences Institute.
The Postdoctoral Research Scientist will apply multiple data science approaches to identify sources of fine particle pollution over India. A model will be used as a testbed for method development, with an eventual application of these methods to products retrieved from current and soon-to-be launched satellite instruments and other public datasets. We seek a data scientist or atmospheric/climate scientist with prior experience analyzing, visualizing, and interpreting large datasets. The researcher is expected to present findings at national and international scientific conferences, to prepare publications for submission to scientific journals, and to participate in other activities related to the project.
