Date Tue, 15 Nov 2011 21:11:52 +0000


Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Earth Observation Science Group of the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Leicester


Salary Grade 7 - £30,870 to £35,788 per annum


Open Ended Contract, subject to Fixed Term Funding. Funding is available for 30 months.


A new role has arisen for a Research Associate to work in the Earth Observation Science Group, Department of Physics and Astronomy, on the characterization and utilization of greenhouse gas data from satellites, the development of more accurate greenhouse gas retrievals and the wider exploitation of the remotely-sensed greenhouse gas data through models and data assimilation. You will be involved in two major European projects and you will directly work with colleagues from the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts.

You will have a PhD or near completion of a PhD in Earth Observation, Physics, Astronomy, Meteorology, Geography or Environmental Science as well as a good publication record or potential for publication. Any candidates with expertise in any of the following: radiative transfer, earth observation, optimal estimation retrieval or data assimilation would be desirable but not essential. See attached document for more details.

Informal enquiries are welcome and should be made to Dr. Hartmut Boesch on
