Exposure to indoor air pollutants from natural gas appliances
Stanford Earth Sciences (the Jackson lab; jacksonlab.stanford.edu) and the Sean N Parker Center (https://climatehealth.sites.stanford.edu) in the Stanford School of Medicine are hiring a full-time postdoctoral scientist to evaluate and model the health consequences of emissions of NOx, CO, and other pollutants from natural gas appliances. The exposure modeling will be based on original pollutant data measured by the team in homes (e.g., Lebel et al. 2022, Environmental Science and Technology, in press, “Emissions from natural gas stoves, cooktops and ovens in residential homes”). The data will be used to model exposure levels and potential impacts from any health-damaging pollutants co-emitted with leaked methane. For example, modeling of potential increased morbidity (e.g. respiratory, cardiac and immune dysfunction) and mortality associated with pollution exposure are of interest.  The project provides opportunities for collaboration and travel domestically and internationally.Additional spn
