New ideas are all around us, but only a few will change the world. That's our focus at JPL. We ask the biggest questions, then search the universe for answers - literally. We build upon ideas that have guided generations, then share our discoveries to inspire generations to come. Your mission - your opportunity - is to seek out the answers that bring us one step closer. If you're driven to discover, create, and inspire something that lasts a lifetime and beyond, you're ready for JPL.
Located in Pasadena, California, JPL has a campus-like environment situated on 177 acres in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains and offers a work environments unlike any other: we inspire passion, foster innovation, build collaboration, and reward excellence.
Greenhouse Gases Observing Satellite (GOSAT, launched in Feb 2009) and Orbiting Carbon Observatory -2 (OCO-2, launched in July 2014) provide more than 10 years of column CO2 observations and solar induced chlorophyll fluorescence observations across the globe. It provides great opportunity to understand carbon cycle in combination with other ancillary observations. JPL's Carbon Cycle and Ecosystems Group is currently seeking a Postdoctoral Scholar to perform flux inversion from global to regional scale and carry out the analysis to understand the interactions between terrestrial carbon cycle and climate. The selected candidate will present the results in conferences, publish in scientific journals, and engage with a highly interdisciplinary, multi-center scientific staff. Dr. Junjie Liu will serve as the advisor to the position.
Candidates should have a recent PhD in Atmospheric Science, or a related field. Strong background in carbon science, atmospheric inverse modeling, data assimilation, and atmospheric modeling is preferred. Excellent communication and writing skills are highly desirable. Candidates who have received their PhD within the past five years since the date of their application are eligible. Postdoctoral Scholar positions are awarded for a minimum of one-year period and may be renewed up to a maximum duration of three years. Candidates should submit the following to this site: CV, representative publications, contact information for three references, and a cover letter stating their research accomplishments and interests.
