modelling atmospheric chemistry and aerosols at a global scale.
  *   A good understanding of the climate system, including processes, 
emissions and observed changes.
  *   Demonstrated ability in data analysis and model evaluation techniques 
involving large atmospheric composition datasets.
  *   Demonstrated experience with UNIX/Linux based computer systems, related 
scripts, and well-developed programming skills in modern FORTRAN.
