We currently have 2 PDRA positions available as part of the NERC Atmospheric Chemistry In The Earth System (ACITES) research network. Please note that the closing date for applications is the end of this week, and interested candidates are therefore requested to apply now. ACITES Research Associate in Atmospheric Transport (Edinburgh) http://www.jobs.ed.ac.uk/vacancies/index.cfm?fuseaction=vacancies.detail&vacancy_ref=3015983 ACITES Research Associate in Atmospheric Deposition (Lancaster) http://hr-jobs.lancs.ac.uk/Vacancy.aspx?ref=A474 The NERC atmospheric chemistry research network ACITES is looking for two ambitious postdoctoral research associates interested in improving the representation of atmospheric chemistry in Earth System Models. These two-year PDRA positions will contribute to the network by developing and applying new metrics to quantify how well key processes important to atmospheric chemistry are represented in Earth System models. One position, based at the University of Edinburgh, will focus on application of metrics that test key tracer transport processes in models, e.g., boundary layer mixing, convection, long-range transport and stratosphere-troposphere exchange, and comparison with observations. A second position, based at Lancaster University, will focus on the evaluation and improvement of treatments of the dry deposition of trace gases and aerosol from the atmosphere to the biosphere/Earth's surface, and on the development and application of metrics that will allow robust evaluation of these schemes against observations across a range of scales. Both transport and deposition metrics will be applied across a range ofmodels in use in the UK community, and will also contribute tointernational intercomparison exercises such as HTAP (HemisphericTransport of Air Pollution, www.htap.org) and ACCMIP (AtmosphericChemistry and Climate Model Intercomparison Project,www.giss.nasa.gov/projects/accmip).
Candidates should have (or be about to complete) a Ph.D. in a related quantitative field (e.g., atmospheric chemistry modelling or Earth system science). Further details are available for the individual posts at the links above. Suitably qualified candidates may apply for both positions as recruitment for these network will be fully coordinated.These are fixed-term posts for 24 months starting on a mutually agreeddate as soon as possible after 1st October. The closing date for bothpositions is Friday 28th September 2012.
