Experimental Studies at Whiteface Mountain (WFM)

Experimental Studies at the Atmospheric Sciences Research Center (ASRC) in Albany, NY

  • Fundamental investigation of heterogeneous aqueous chemistry (currently unfunded)


Graduate Student position in Atmospheric Science at SUNY-Albany, NY


A graduate research position is open within the Atmospheric Sciences Research Center (ASRC) at the State University of New York (SUNY) in Albany. The Lance Lab will be recruiting a PhD student to conduct measurements of aerosol and cloud water composition, for the study of multiphase chemistry. Summertime field experiments are anticipated at Whiteface Mountain (WFM) in the Adirondack Park in northern New York State and potentially also in the greater NYC Metro area. Laboratory and field measurements will complement each other, and both will revolve around organic aerosol formation via heterogeneous chemical reactions within cloud droplets, with relevance for air quality and climate change. The successful applicant will be enjoy making measurements using instrumentation including a high resolution aerosol mass spectrometer, cloud condensation nuclei (CCN) counter, and counterflow virtual impactor.


Applicants interested in the above opportunity should contact Dr. Sara Lance at for more information.

Applications must be received by Feb 1, 2020.

Priority will be given to applications received before Jan 15, 2020.
