Jimenez Group at CU-Boulder
Prof. Jimenez joined the University of Colorado at Boulder (CU) in 2002, and is currently a Professor in the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry (Analytical, Environmental, and Atmospheric Chemistry Division), and a Fellow of the Cooperative Institute for Research in the Environmental Sciences (CIRES). CU is ranked #2 worldwide in Geosciences and Boulder is arguably the world capital of Atmospheric Chemistry, which provide an excellent environment for research in our field.
The research of the Jimenez group centers on the development and application of advanced instrumentation for real-time, quantitative measurements of the chemical composition of submicron aerosols and gases. We care about atmospheric aerosols for many reasons, including their effect on radiation balance (climate forcing), severe short-term and long-term effects on human health, reduced visibility, and deposition of acids, toxics, and nutrients to ecosystems and crops. Most of these effects are not well understood, in good part due to the limitations of the instrumentation available. Advanced instrumentation can be used to make faster progress in many of these areas, and we typically work at the cutting edge of instrument development and application. We work on field studies, laboratory chamber and reactor studies, instrument development, and computer modeling.
If you are interested in joining the Jimenez group as a graduate student or postdoc, please read first our FAQs for prospective students & postdocs and then email Jose at firstname.lastname@example.org with a brief description of your research interests and your CV. We typically take 1 PhD student per year, while postdoc positions are available at various times depending on funding, and always advertised here. And remember that Boulder is a great place to live!
