Research Associate III, Special: Air Emissions from Dairy Operations

The Department of Animal Sciences and the Natural Resource Ecology Laboratory at Colorado State University seek a qualified scientist to participate in research into the emissions of trace gases and particulates from dairy cattle production systems. The study will utilize boundary-layer mass balance approaches and point sampling to measure emissions of ammonia, PM2.5 and greenhouse gases from whole-farm systems and to challenge process-based models predicting these emissions. Responsibilities will include tethersonde deployments, instrument oversight, sample collection, and laboratory analyses for ammonia, methane, nitrous oxide and particulates. Collaboration in emission model development and analyses and publication of findings will be expected. As this is an interdisciplinary endeavor candidates with relevant training in fields of biological or environmental sciences will be considered. A PhD or a lesser degree with commensurate experience in biological, atmospheric, or allied sciences is required. Experience in air pollution, trace gas dynamics, atmospheric chemistry and/or animal sciences will be considered advantageous. (See full job description at
