PostDoc position in chemistry-climate modeling


PMOD/WRC is offering a PostDoc position within the project “Study of
factors influencing ozone layer evolution (SILA)” funded by the Swiss
National Science Foundation. The main goal of this project is to study
the ozone layer behavior during the recent decade and define the
spectral solar irradiance dataset which gives the best agreement between
the simulated and measured data. We will also analyze the causes of a
strong ozone increase observed in August 2004, the anomalous Arctic
ozone decrease during winter 2011, and the ozone depletion after the
major Sudden Stratospheric Warming in January 2009. PostDoc will apply
the chemistry-climate model SOCOL to simulate the climate and ozone
layer behavior, analyze the results, compare them with observations and
prepare publications.

The candidate should hold PhD in physics, mathematics, environmental,
earth sciences or engineering. The candidate should further have deep
interest in the modeling of physical or chemical processes in the
atmosphere at all scales or some experience in numerical climate and
chemistry modeling. Good knowledge of mathematical fundamentals,
FORTRAN-95, Unix Shell-scripting, IDL or other visualization packages
will be required.Fluency in English is essential.

The position should be filled by July 2014. The project duration is 1
year. Please send your application including a statement of interest,
transcripts, CV, publication list, and contact information of at least
two referees (preferably as a single pdf-file) to Eugene Rozanov by
email (e.rozanov@pmodwrc.ch <mailto:e.rozanov@pmodwrc.ch>). For informal
enquiries concerning this position, please, contact Dr. Eugene Rozanov
(+41 81 4175135). The review of applications will start in April 2014.
