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.
