[Met-jobs] Research Fellow in Atmospheric Chemistry - University of Birmingham

From William Bloss <>

Date Mon, 11 Mar 2013 11:39:18 +0000

Research Fellow in Atmospheric Chemistry
University of Birmingham, UK
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research position as part of a new 
research project "Reactions of Stabilised Criegee Intermediates in the 
Atmosphere: Implications for Tropospheric Composition & Climate", funded by the 
UK NERC. The post is fixed term for 30 months, until 30 September 2015.

The project will involve the use of the EUPHORE atmospheric simulation chamber, 
in Valencia, Spain, to quantify the contribution of SCI reactions to the 
processing of atmospheric SO2 and NOx under realistic ambient (boundary layer) 
conditions. The resulting reaction parameters will then be employed in 
atmospheric models to assess the impact of SCI reactions upon atmospheric 
chemistry, air quality and climate.  The Research Fellow will be responsible 
for planning and overseeing the chamber experiments in Valencia, (building upon 
existing proof-of-concept data, and established chemical models), analysis of 
the experimental results, and modelling interpretation (with input and support 
from the project PIs).  

The project is a collaboration between the Universities of Birmingham (Dr 
William Bloss) and York (Dr Andrew Rickard; Prof Mat Evans). The post will be 
based at Birmingham, but with substantial linkage with York (for the modelling 
aspects) and other project partners.

Potential applicants are welcome to discuss the position informally with Dr 
William (Bill) Bloss, Tel. +44 (0)121 414 2558, email

Starting salary £27,854 a year, in a range up to £36,298 a year, with potential 
progression to £38,522 a year.
