Postdoctoral Research Position

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) at Princeton University invites applications for a post-doctoral or more senior researcher in the broad area of urban meteorology and air quality.

The researcher will work with Professors Elie Bou-Zeid and Mark Zondlo on integrating low-cost and high-end environmental sensing in cities, and linking the spatio-temporal patterns to urban and meteorological drivers. The work will primarily focus on the development and testing of the Mobile Urban Sensing Technology Kits (http://must.princeton.edu), their co-deployment with the PACE platform http://zondlo.princeton.edu/pace.html, and development of machine learning approaches for interpreting the measurements to better understand how air quality in cities will be modified by the emerging urban mobility (electrification, sharing, autonomy and micro mobility).

A doctoral degree in environmental engineering or related fields (atmospheric science, mechanical engineering, etc.) is required. Experience with experimental air quality sensing techniques is also needed.

This is a renewable 1-year position, with a preferred start date in March of 2022 or later.

Interested candidates should submit an application online at https://www.princeton.edu/acad-positions/position/24301
