Dear Colleagues,

Alma Hodzic of NCAR and I recently got funding for a collaborative project on OA regional modeling, and we are looking for a postdoc to start around the Fall or early Spring. Please forward the ad below to any finishing students or others you know of who may be qualified and interested.


===== Postdoc Position Ad ===========================================

A position in regional modeling of organic aerosols (OA) with a focus on the WRF/Chem model, will become available at NCAR in Fall 2011, for a collaborative project with the University of Colorado. The successful candidate will adapt and implement new mechanisms and parameterizations of OA and SOA formation, evolution, and loss into WRF/Chem, and evaluate the results using observations from recent large field campaigns (e.g. MILAGRO, CalNex, GVAX, BEACHON etc.).

The ideal candidate will have:
- A Ph.D. in Chemistry, Atmospheric Sciences, or a related discipline.
- Experience with atmospheric chemistry & transport modeling (e.g. regional or global models).

Other modeling experience such as LES, master mechanism, box etc. is also beneficial.

The initial appointment will be for 1 year but the expectation is of renewal for up to 2 more years upon satisfactory performance. The start date should be in Fall 2011 or Spring 2012. Applications will be reviewed starting in Aug. 2011, and until the position is filled.

If you are interested in the position, please email Alma Hodzic <> and Jose-Luis Jimenez <>, attaching a cover letter indicating your date of availability, your CV, PDFs of 2-3 first author publications, and contact information for 4-5 references. NCAR is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
