[Met-jobs] Postdoctoral research position in aerosol modeling

From Axel Lauer <>

Date Fri, 24 May 2013 15:33:56 +0200

A postdoctoral research position is available in the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS) in the area of aerosol modeling. The IASS is an international, interdisciplinary center of excellence
located in Potsdam, Germany (

The successful candidate will contribute to a research project investigating the impact of black carbon on air quality, climate, and human health using numerical models. Of particular interest is the Arctic and the role of long-range transport e.g. from Europe to black carbon concentrations in the air and in snow. The project will look into the effects of black carbon in the atmosphere and its deposition on the radiation budget, clouds, climate, and air quality under a reduced emissions scenario compared with “business as usual”. Sensitivity simulations with a global/regional aerosol-climate model (e.g. EMAC, WRF/Chem) will be performed to assess policy-relevant mitigation pathways for black carbon and co-emitted species. The position will at first be filled for 2 years.

All application received before June 30, 2013 will receive full consideration. The position is available immediately, and will remain open until filled. We offer an IASS international fellowship (tax-free stipend), which allows substantial flexibility and freedom to carry out the overall task as the researcher. The IASS particularly encourages applications from female researchers; handicapped applicants will be given preference in case of equal qualifications.
