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.
