From Atul Jain <jain@atmos.uiuc.edu>
To met-jobs@lists.reading.ac.uk
Date Wed, 29 Jun 2011 22:17:32 -0500 (CDT)

The Department of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Illinois at 
Urbana-Champaign is seeking a postdoctoral research associate to conduct 
research on improving our understanding of the interactions among earth’s 
climate and terrestrial biogeochemical-biogeophysical systems. The candidate’s 
research will focus on studying the role of carbon and nitrogen dynamics and 
land cover and land use changes and their impacts on atmospheric CO2, climate, 
carbon sequestrations in terrestrial ecosystems and soils using an earth system 
model.

A Ph.D. in earth system science, climate science, or another related field in 
the sciences or engineering with a working knowledge of global biogeochemistry 
model, an earth system model or similar complex model. A working experience in 
FORTRAN 90 is must and parallel programming and running models on super 
computers is preferred. The initial term will be for two years with the strong 
potential for renewal based on performance.

Applicants should send the following materials by email to Prof. Atul Jain at 
jain1@uiuc.edu: (1) a cover letter describing research interests and 
experience, (2) curriculum vita, and (3) names and contact information for 
three references. Review of completed applications will start immediately. The 
salary is commensurate with experience.
