Job description

The Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) in Boulder, Colorado is seeking a highly motivated and skilled Scientist/Engineer/Instrument Specialist to join the Halocarbons and Atmospheric Trace Species (HATS) Division at the NOAA Global Monitoring Laboratory responsible for tracking atmospheric concentrations of gases that impact stratospheric ozone, climate, and human health. The successful candidate will operate, maintain, calibrate, and troubleshoot instruments designed to precisely and accurately measure trace gas concentrations in atmospheric samples. The specialist will hold primary responsibility within the HATS Division for ensuring that the instrumentation operates at the highest levels of precision, accuracy, and consistency over time. In addition, they will be responsible for regularly updating quality-assured data from the instrument for a number of trace gases on internal data servers and maintenance of consistent calibration scales over time for these trace gases.

The instrument involved provides measurements of approximately forty different trace gases in air samples regularly collected from remote locations around the world, and from aircraft and tall towers at sites across North America and other locations. The trace gases targeted include greenhouse gases, ozone-depleting gases, carbonyl sulfide, and select hazardous air pollutants at part-per-trillion concentrations in air at target precisions of 0.1%.

The University of Colorado Boulder is committed to building a culturally diverse community of faculty, staff, and students dedicated to contributing to an inclusive campus environment. We are an Equal Opportunity employer, including veterans and individuals with disabilities.
