Research Fellow in Global Aerosol Modelling at Univ. Leeds, U.K. (Fixed Term, 11 months).
The project is part of the MACC (Monitoring Atmospheric Composition and Climate) project, a major consortium since 2009 involving over 40 partner institutions across Europe funded via the EU Framework Programme 7.
The GLOMAP-mode aerosol microphysics module (http://www.researchpages.net/glomap) has been implemented into the ECMWF Integrated Forecasting System as an improved forward model for global aerosol forecasts and re-analyses. Within MACC-II, an improved configuration of “IFS-GLOMAP” which runs coupled to the tropospheric chemistry module C-IFS has now been developed.
The post will involve analysis/visualisation of output from simulations with C-IFS-GLOMAP and IFS-GLOMAP and evaluating the model against a range of benchmark observational datasets.
The scientific aspects will involve assessing the improvements in model skill with the coupling to atmospheric chemistry, including the effects of resolving online aerosol-chemistry interactions such as heterogeneous chemistry and aerosol impacts on photolysis.
You will have a PhD (or be close to obtaining one) and research interests in atmospheric modelling, with expertise either in atmospheric chemistry/aerosol processes or modelling of other complex systems. You will have proven skills in numerical modelling in fortran and data visualisation/analysis techniques. You must have a demonstrable commitment to publication of research findings at an international level, as your role will involve leading a peer-reviewed journal article.
The post will be based in the School of Earth and Environment within the aerosol modelling group (http://www.see.leeds.ac.uk/aerosol/) which is carrying out a range of research topics, including volcanic impacts on climate and air quality, modelling aerosol-cloud interactions and quantifying uncertainty in aerosol-climate models
Pay will be at Univ. Leeds Grade 7 (£30,424 - £36,298). Closing date is 3rd July 2013.
