Research Fellow

Multiple Scale Atmospheric Composition and Climate Modelling

University of Hertfordshire - Centre for Atmospheric and Instrumentation Research - Physics, Astronomy & Maths

Salary range: £25,251 - £27,578 per annum depending on skills and experience

Salary scale: UH6

FTE: This is a full time position for 37 hours per week 

Duration of contract: This is a fixed term contract for a period of two years and is available immediately

We are looking for an enthusiastic and self-motivated scientist to contribute to research programmes on modelling of meteorology, atmospheric composition and climate and associated impacts of air quality on regional to global scales. Particular focus will be on the use of global and regional scale models and simulating distribution of pollutants such as aerosols and ozone at high resolutions and understanding how large scale forcing can influence atmospheric composition on continental scales.  

You must have a good first degree in a relevant subject and a PhD in atmospheric modelling. Strong experience in the use of advanced regional and global air pollution and/or climate models operating on LINUX platforms, programming languages (eg FORTRAN) and associated visualisation techniques will be essential. Experience of using different modelling approaches, interfacing regional and global models and use of large datasets in community standard formats will be important. You should also have experience of critically analysing model predictions with available measurements and relate these to underlying mechanisms and multiscale processes. You must also have excellent skills in writing and speaking English and a good track record of publishing papers in high quality journals.

Additional information: Please include your full CV (with contact details of three referees)

Contact details/Informal enquiries: For an informal discussion please contact Professor Ranjeet S Sokhi, Centre for Atmospheric and Instrumentation Research (CAIR), Tel: 01707 284520, Fax: 01707 284208, Email:
