[Met-jobs] Postdoc positions at Lancaster and Edinburgh

From Oliver Wild <>
Date Wed, 26 Sep 2012 10:22:44 +0100

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)

ACITES Research Associate in Atmospheric Deposition (Lancaster)

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 of
models in use in the UK community, and will also contribute tointernational intercomparison exercises such as HTAP (HemisphericTransport of Air Pollution, and ACCMIP (AtmosphericChemistry and Climate Model Intercomparison Project,

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.
