Research Fellow

South American Biomass Burning Analysis (SAMBBA)



School of Earth and Environment, University of Leeds

Fixed term for 34 months commencing 1 September 2012

We are seeking a Research Fellow to work within the South American Biomass 
Burning Analysis (SAMBBA) project. Deforestation and agricultural burning 
across South America emit large amounts of aerosol and trace gases to the 
atmosphere with impacts on climate and air quality. The aim of SAMBBA is to 
understand the properties and impacts of this aerosol. We seek a motivated 
researcher to use a global aerosol microphysics model to interpret and 
understand observations of biomass burning aerosol.

SAMBBA is a large consortium project funded by the UK Natural Environment 
Research Council (NERC) involving partners across the UK and in Brazil.



You will have a PhD (or be nearing completion) in a relevant branch of 
atmospheric or Earth System science; e.g. atmospheric composition, climate 
science, land-surface modelling. You will have proven experience in numerical 
programming with FORTRAN as well as data visualisation. You will be expected to 
show demonstrable commitment to publication of original results at an 
international level.

Informal enquiries may be made to Dr Dominick Spracklen, tel: +44 (0)113 343 
7488, email: d.spracklen@see.leeds.ac.uk<mailto:d.spracklen@see.leeds.ac.uk>.
