Aerosol Characterization by Laser Spectroscopy Research

Postdoctoral or Senior Research Fellow opportunity is available in the U.S. Army Research Laboratory, Adelphi, Maryland. The lab seeks experimental approaches to use laser spectroscopy to study atmospheric aerosols, especially biological and chemical aerosols. Two projects focus on the detection and characterization of individual aerosol particles by using multiple optical methodologies. Preference will be given to candidates having good experience in optics and laser spectroscopy, instrumentation, and familiarity with aerosols. U.S. citizenship is required.
The Army Research Laboratory (ARL) is the Army's corporate basic and applied research laboratory. Our mission is to provide innovative science, technology, and analysis to enable full-spectrum operations. The opportunity available is in the Battlefield Environment Division of the Computational and Information Sciences Directorate (CISD). For further information on ARL, please see the website, default.cfm. For immediate response reply with your resume and research interests. Additional application instruction are listed below.

About CISD
The Computational and Information Sciences Directorate (CISD) conducts research in a variety of disciplines relevant to achieving and implementing the so-called digital battlefield. Problems address the sensing, distribution, analysis, and display of information in the modern battle space. CISD research focuses on four major areas: communications, atmospheric modeling, battlefield visualization, and computing
The Army Research Laboratory Research Associateship Program (ARL-RAP) is designed to significantly increase the involvement of creative and highly trained scientists and engineers from academia and industry in scientific and technical areas of interest and relevance to the Army. Scientists and Engineers at the CCDC Army Research Laboratory (ARL) help shape and execute the Army's program for meeting the challenge of developing technologies that will support Army forces in meeting future operational needs by pursuing scientific research and technological developments in diverse fields such as: applied mathematics, atmospheric characterization, simulation and human modeling, digital/optical signal processing, nanotechnology, material science and technology, multifunctional technology, combustion processes, propulsion and flight physics, communication and networking, and computational and information sciences.
