Aerosol Drug Products Fellowship at FDA

Posted August 3, 2022

A research opportunity is currently available in the Office of Testing and Research (OTR) at the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER), Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in St. Louis, Missouri.

The fellow will participant research projects aiming to better understand the safety, efficacy, and quality of aerosol drug products by examining the physiochemical characteristics of a variety of complex dosage forms, including nasal spray, metered dose and dry powder inhalers, and OTC sunscreen products, etc. New methodology and data will be generated on the performance of aerosol drug sprays to support FDA regulatory research and activities.

The qualified candidate should have received a doctoral degree in one of the relevant fields within the past five years, or be currently pursuing the degree with completion within one year from application.

If interested, please send CV to xiaofei.liu@fda.hhs.gov for consideration. 


Postdoctoral scholar position: Hygroscopicity and CCN potential of organic functional groups in ambient aerosol, University of California, Davis

Posted August 1, 2022

The Air Quality Research Center (AQRC) at the University of California, Davis is seeking a postdoctoral scholar to perform laboratory research to investigate the hygroscopicity and CCN potential of organic functional groups in aerosol. The post-doctoral fellow will be mentored by Drs. Ann M. Dillner and Anthony Wexler. The importance of organics in hygroscopicity is increasing due to emissions controls of SOx, NOx, and primary particles, leading to an increasing fraction of organics in ambient aerosol. The chemical form and hygroscopicity of aerosol electrolytes are well known but not so for the organic fraction. This limits our ability to understand the extent that organics are cloud condensation nuclei (CCN).

The post-doctoral scholar will investigate hygroscopicity as a function of organic functional group composition in aerosol over a range of complexities of chemical composition, ranging from single compounds to smog chamber studies to ambient field samples. The data will be used to validate thermodynamic models, developed by Dr. Wexler as part of this project, to predict water content of aerosol based on functional group composition. The functional groups composition of the samples will be measured by Fourier Transform-Infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR, (Boris et al., amt-14-4355-2021, 2021, Boris et al., amt-2019-144, 2019; Ruthenburg et al., j.atmosenv.2013.12.034, 2014) and the water-uptake of these samples will be determined using a relative humidity controlled chamber (constant humidity solutions compendium published by Dr. Wexler in Lide, D. R. CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics; CRC press, 2004; Vol. 85). Both the FT-IR and hygroscopicity methods will be enhanced during this project.

The candidate must have a Ph.D. in Atmospheric Science, Chemistry, Chemical or Environmental Engineering or a related field. A background in atmospheric aerosol organic chemistry, hygroscopicity/CCN, and/or FT-IR is preferred. Programming experience in R, Matlab and/or Python is also preferred. Interested individuals should send a single PDF file containing a cover letter, CV, graduate transcripts, date of availability, contact information of three references, and up to three published papers to Dr. Ann M. Dillner (amdillner at ucdavis dot edu). Applications will be accepted until the position is filled. The initial appointment is for one year beginning late summer or early fall 2022 and may be extended for an additional two years contingent upon mutual agreement. The position includes health insurance and other benefits. More information on Dr. Dillner’s laboratory, the FT-IR Laboratory in the AQRC at UC Davis, is available at https://aqrc.ucdavis.edu/people/ann-dillner. More information on Dr. Wexler’s lab is available at https://faculty.engineering.ucdavis.edu/wexler. This ad is also posted at https://aqrc.ucdavis.edu/job-announcements. The University of California, Davis, is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer with a strong institutional commitment to the development of a climate that supports equality of opportunity and respect for differences.


Postdoctoral scholar position: FT-IR and ACSM, University of California, Davis

Posted January 13, 2022

The Air Quality Research Center at UCDavis is seeking a Postdoctoral Scholar to perform research using Fourier Transform-Infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) and Aerosol Chemical Speciation Monitor (ACSM) instrumentation to study ambient organic aerosol composition and contribute to enhanced organic speciation measurements in the Atmospheric Science and mEasurement NeTwork (ASCENT). The post-doc will measure laboratory, smog chamber and ambient organic composition data using an ACSM and FT-IR. The post-doc will use these measurements to develop parameterizations of ACSM data that increases the chemical resolution of OA from the ACSM. Similar types of empirical parameterizations have proven useful for estimating the contribution of carboxylic acid to OA measured by aerosol mass spectrometers. The parameterizations will be incorporated into the ACSM data analysis tools for chemical composition and source apportionment for ASCENT.

The candidate must have a Ph.D. in Atmospheric Science, Chemistry, Chemical or Environmental Engineering or related. Interested individuals should send a single pdf file containing a cover letter, CV, graduate transcripts, date of availability, contact information of three references, and up to three published papers to Dr. Ann M. Dillner (amdillner at ucdavis dot edu). Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.

For the full job posting for this position, including candidate requirements, and other open positions with the ASCENT network, see https://ng.chbe.gatech.edu/sites/default/files/ASCENT_open_positions.pdf.
