NIWA is a leading environmental research institute and key provider of atmospheric, freshwater and marine research and consultancy services in New Zealand.  NIWA has a strong programme of measurement and modelling of emissions to the atmosphere and atmospheric composition, including greenhouse gases.  This is linked to a wider effort to improve knowledge of human impacts on the environment both globally and in the South Pacific region in order to guide and verify national and international strategies aimed at reducing greenhouse gas impacts on the climate system.

NIWA is seeking a post doctoral researcher in the area of regional atmospheric CO2 modeling to undertake Lagrangian modeling to interpret surface and total column observations of CO2, assess regional uptake of CO2 by the terrestrial biosphere and oceans, and investigate relationships between climate drivers and terrestrial CO2 uptake in New Zealand.  This position will collaborate with Drs. Sara Mikaloff Fletcher and Vanessa Sherlock and will be primarily based in Wellington, with some time also spent in Lauder, South Island.

The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. in Atmospheric Science or a related field; strong analytical, statistical, and programming skills; and the ability and aptitude to network with other New Zealand experts on the terrestrial carbon cycle. A background or interest in Lagrangian modeling, carbon modeling, or in situ and/or remote-sensing trace gas measurements is also desirable.
