Overview

The facilities of the Department of Environmental Sciences include local and remote supercomputing and an array of state-of-the-art laboratory instrumentation. As a member of the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research, we have access to the computing and research facilities of the National Center for Atmospheric Research. Locally, our Photochemical Assessment Monitoring (PAM) Site (http://pamsite.rutgers.edu/) supports continuous, real-time measurements of various physical and chemical properties of the lower boundary layer, including surface energy fluxes. Through the PAM Site, the department has a strong working relationship with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection’s Division of Air Quality, which controls over 100 air monitors at 33 different field sites throughout the state. A member of the Big Ten and the Association of American Universities, Rutgers-New Brunswick is America’s eighth oldest institution of higher learning and New Jersey’s premier public research university. The city of New Brunswick sits in the center of America’s vibrant northeast corridor, which runs from Boston to Washington, D.C. We are close to NOAA’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory in Princeton and NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York, NY, and our faculty members collaborate with scientists at both. We host one of the most diverse student bodies in the United States. As our 2016 commencement speaker President Barack Obama said, “America converges here.”

Statement

Preference will be given to applicants with research interests that include, but are not limited to, the interactions between climate change and air quality or the role of atmospheric chemistry in biogeochemical cycles. We are particularly interested in scientists whose research fits synergistically into interdisciplinary projects and who are eager to collaborate with faculty from other programs and departments at Rutgers including Earth and Planetary Sciences, Ecology and Evolution, Geography, Marine and Coastal Sciences, Biochemistry and Microbiology, the School of Engineering, and the Rutgers Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences Institute. The successful applicant will be eligible for membership in the Institute of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences, which unites faculty, researchers, and graduate students studying Earth’s interior, continents, oceans, atmosphere, and biosphere, their interactions through Earth history, and their effects on human civilization today.
