New Webinar on March 27th!

Description: In this webinar, we will introduce Carbon Solutions’ 𝘊𝘖₂𝘕𝘊𝘖𝘙𝘋 software! The goal of

𝘊𝘖₂𝘕𝘊𝘖𝘙𝘋 is to identify opportunities and to project the cost of retrofitting facilities with carbon capture. Carbon Solutions has developed 𝘊𝘖₂𝘕𝘊𝘖𝘙𝘋 during the past year under an NSF SBIR grant. In this presentation, we will explain how 𝘊𝘖₂𝘕𝘊𝘖𝘙𝘋 works, demonstrate a user interface, and preview results from applying 𝘊𝘖₂𝘕𝘊𝘖𝘙𝘋 that will be released as a white paper later this year. Stay tuned!

We are hiring a Research Scientist with experience in air dispersion modeling & data analysis!

Job Description: The Research Scientist will work as a part of a multidisciplinary team creating and implementing interactive software tools that provide decision support for clean energy infrastructure development. The Research Scientist will help manage multi-year U.S. DOE-funded projects, conduct original research, and interact directly with clients. The selected applicant must have excellent communication skills and feel comfortable working in an environment with evolving job responsibilities. Initially, the Research Scientist will support a Phase II SBIR-funded project (LOCAETA) that is developing an interactive tool for quantifying air quality co-benefits to decarbonization. For this project, the Research Scientist will be expected to:

  • Lead and perform atmospheric dispersion modeling analyses related to industrial air pollution using tools such as AERMOD, Hysplit, CMAQ, etc.

  • Evaluate and quantify air quality co-benefits to decarbonization using public health modeling approaches.

  • Perform model validation, QA, and visualize data and modeling results using tools such as R, Python, Julia, etc.

  • Lead and/or substantially contribute to peer-reviewed scientific publications based off the original research they are conducting with the team.

  • Write code to support team efforts to develop cutting-edge software and data visualization tools on other low-carbon energy projects and software
