The Department of Environmental Sciences seeks to hire a postdoctoral research associate to advance the use of satellite remote sensing to study air pollution environmental (in)justice in U.S. cities.

The associate will work to expand the capabilities of satellite measurements for environmental justice research and use these observations to improve our understanding of the factors controlling urban air pollution (in)equality, including, for example, atmospheric chemistry, climate variability, emissions regulations, and the history of the built environment. The associate will conduct complementary modeling analyses, with a choice of projects utilizing either chemical transport modeling or land-use regression techniques, according to their interests and experience. The associate will also have the opportunity to work with the University of Virginia Repair Lab, an interdisciplinary research laboratory focused on environmental and climate justice issues. As part of their Repair Lab affiliation, the associate will explore the policy-relevant aspects of their research and collaborate with community partners.

QUALIFICATION REQUIREMENTS: A Ph.D. in Chemistry, Environmental Science, Atmospheric Science, Geography, Engineering, or a related field at the time of the appointment is required. Experience with either chemical transport modeling, land-use regression modeling, or satellite data analysis are preferred; however, applicants with other relevant training will also be considered.

APPLICATION PROCEDURE: Apply online at and attach the following:
-curriculum vitae
-one example of a first-authored manuscript
-a cover letter describing your interest in the position and relevant past research experience
-three references with contact information.

The position is eligible for telecommuting within the United States. All details of the position and application can be found at:
