Within VANAHEIM you will work closely with groups at the Universities of Oxford and Bristol who have developed algorithms to infer from space-borne sensors the amount and altitude of SO2 and volcanic ash parameters. You will lead the chemical interpretation of these observations using the nested GEOS-Chem chemistry transport model over and downwind of selected volcanic eruptions.
You will be a self-motivated individual with the ability to take responsibility for the delivery of key components of the research project. You will be required to identify and refine the underlying research questions and to develop tools to address those questions. You will also be expected to present your results to the VANAHEIM consortium and to the broader scientific community.
You will have experience in developing and applying a global 3-D chemistry transport model and interpreting remotely sensed data. Knowledge of FORTRAN and IDL (or Python) computer languages are essential. You will likely have an undergraduate degree in physics, chemistry or applied mathematics.
The post is full-time for 18 months, and is available from 01 January 2013.
