Post doctoral position in global modelling of marine aerosol

Job description

Finnish Meteorological Institute’s (FMI) Kuopio Unit is a research and
weather service unit located at the campus of the University of Eastern
Finland. Our main research focus is atmospheric aerosol particles and
their climate and health effects.

Currently we invite applications for a post doctoral position in the
project “Current and future sources of cloud condensation nuclei in the
marine atmosphere” funded by the Academy of Finland. The position is for
2.5 years (with a possible extension of 1.5 years) starting from 1st
January 2012.

The overall aim of the project is to quantify how microphysical,
chemical and meteorological processes control aerosol properties and
their variability in the marine boundary layer. This will be done by
analysing a broad set of field measurements in terms of transport,
transformation and aging with a state-of-the- science global aerosol
model GLOMAP. The project will result in an identification of processes
with largest uncertainties in order to guide future process studies and
field measurements as well as in an improved aerosol scheme in climate
model ECHAM.


Candidates must have a PhD in natural or computational sciences, ideally
in the area of atmospheric, ocean or climate sciences, physics,
chemistry or engineering. In addition, strong numerical modelling skills
and fluency in English are essential for this project, and experience
with large scale atmospheric models, data analysis and meteorology is
highly desirable. We are looking to recruit a highly motivated scientist
with good communication and organizational skills who is able to carry
out independent research as well as work as a part of a team.

To apply

To apply, please send your CV completed with a list of publications, two
letters of reference and a brief statement of research interests to
<>  (and cc’d to<>) by 30th
September 2011.

For more details, please contact Senior Research Scientist Hannele
Korhonen (<>, +358-50-344 7116).
