Forwarded from CLIMLIST... Scientist - Atmospheric Chemistry • based in Wellington, New Zealand • permanent, full-time NIWA is New Zealand's leading environmental research institute and key provider of atmospheric, freshwater and marine research and consultancy services in New Zealand. NIWA has a strong programme of measurement and modelling of atmospheric composition and emissions to the atmosphere, in particular CO2 and non-CO2 greenhouse gases (GHGs) and their isotopic signatures. This is linked to a wider effort to improve knowledge of human impacts on the environment both globally and in the South Pacific region in order to guide and verify national and international strategies aimed at reducing greenhouse gas impacts on the climate system. In support of this effort NIWA operates a clean-air monitoring station at Baring Head near Wellington, an upper atmospheric observatory at Lauder and a fully equipped gas analysis laboratory in Wellington. We have an opening for an accomplished researcher with a research degree in atmospheric physics or chemistry to conduct research on the composition of, and processes in the troposphere and investigate chemical species in air, snow and ice with regards to drivers and mitigation of climate change. The appointee will contribute to analysis of the life cycles of, and interactions between, GHGs and other atmospheric compounds. The position supports research and consultancy projects and is expected to develop collaborations with related groups both within New Zealand and overseas. The appointee will have experience in measurements of trace gases, atmospheric compounds and isotopic composition, including data analysis and interpretation. They will also have experience in working with tropospheric chemical models and relating output to observations. A proven publication record is expected. The appointee will also be expected to actively develop research initiatives and have experience with planning and carrying out research projects, writing funding proposals or pursuing consultancy opportunities in related disciplines. We are seeking a self-motivated and results orientated, conscientious and well organised individual, with a keen eye for detail. They will also have exceptional interpersonal skills, be adaptable and be committed to on-going professional development. A position description, online applications and further information about NIWA can be found at: <http://www.careers.niwa.co.nz> Applications close on 15 July 2013.
