University of Leeds
National Centre for Atmospheric Science and the UK Met Office

Numerical Analyst in Chemistry-Aerosol Modelling

Fixed term for 2 years 9 months
University Grade 7 (£30,728 - £36,661 p.a.)

The United Kingdom Chemistry and Aerosol (UKCA) model is a joint NCAS-Met 
Office programme. Project partners are the Hadley Centre and the Universities 
of Cambridge, Leeds and Oxford.

The UKCA model addresses key scientific questions relating to 
chemistry-aerosol-climate interactions and has since its initiation, evolved 
into a sophisticated model. It supports a variety of chemistry schemes and an 
improved aerosol microphysics component and is used in numerous studies of 
joint NERC-Met Office interest (e.g. aerosol-cloud interactions, regional air 
quality forecasting, and centennial global climate realisations). At the core 
of UKCA are numerical integrators which solve systems of ordinary differential 
equations describing the transformation of chemical tracers and the gas to 
particle partioning of ammonia, sulphuric acid and nitric acid into the 
size-resolved ammonium/sulphate/nitrate aerosol.

Employed by the University of Leeds, you will be based at the UK Met Office in 
Exeter, with visits to UKCA partner Universities of Cambridge, Leeds, and 
Oxford, as appropriate.

You will have a PhD (or be close to obtaining one) and research interests in 
numerical analysis and/or high performance computing. You will have proven 
skills in numerical modelling, numerical analysis, high performance computing, 
and fortran programming.
