Post title: Research Fellow in Global Scale Atmospheric Pollution and Climate 
Modelling
 
SBU: 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 atmospheric pollution and climate and 
associated impacts of air quality on global and regional scales. Particular 
focus will be on the use of global scale air pollution models to simulate 
aerosols and ozone distributions at high resolutions by interfacing with 
regional models and so improve our understanding of 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)
