Postdoctoral position in organic aerosol modeling with WRF/Chem
---------------------------------------------------------------

We invite applications for a postdoctoral research position in regional modeling of organic aerosols (OA) with a focus on the WRF/Chem model development/evaluation and analysis of field project data. The position will be based at NCAR starting in Summer 2011, in collaboration 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 such as MILAGRO, BEACHON, GVAX, DC3, SEAC4RS, 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, 1D, etc. is also beneficial. - Ability to work independently as part of a multidisciplinary collaborative team.

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 early to mid 2012. Applications will be reviewed starting Nov. 25, and until the position is filled.

If you are interested in the position, please email Alma Hodzic <alma@ucar.edu> and Jose-Luis Jimenez <jose.jimenez@colorado.edu>, attaching as a single PDF file: a cover letter indicating your date of availability, your CV, 2-3 first author publications, and contact information for 4-5 references. NCAR is an Equal Opportunity Employer.

Some previous publications from our collaborative research include Hodzic et al. ACP 2009; Hodzic et al., ACP 2010a; Hodzic et al., ACP 2010b; Hodzic and Jimenez, GMD 2011.

PS: an advertisement for this position was sent about 4 months ago but we are re-sending it due to delays in setting up the funding, which is now available.
