[Met-jobs] PDRA in Bayesian methods and greenhouse gas flux estimation at the University of Bristol

From Matt Rigby <>
Date Mon, 2 Mar 2015 10:16:36 +0000

Dear colleagues,

We are seeking to appoint a post-doctoral research assistant for a 2.5 year NERC-funded project on the development of Bayesian methods for greenhouse gas flux estimation using atmospheric observations. The successful applicant will be based in the University of Bristol’s Atmospheric Chemistry Research Group (ACRG) and work with staff from the School of Mathematics (Dr. Jonty Rougier) and the UK Met Office (Dr. Alistair Manning). The project will focus on the development of hierarchical Bayesian statistics, Gaussian process emulation and Markov chain Monte Carlo methods. You will work closely with experimental and theoretical atmospheric scientists from the Advanced Global Atmospheric Gases Experiment (AGAGE), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Global Monitoring Division (NOAA-GMD) and UK scientists involved in the Global And Uk Greenhouse gas Emissions project (GAUGE) and the Deriving Emissions related to Climate Change (DECC) network.

We are looking for an enthusiastic, self motivated person who will work closely with other ACRG team members. A background in physical science, mathematics and/or computing is required. Experience in atmospheric science is desirable, but not essential.

Bristol job reference: ACAD101279

Closing date: 1st April 2015


Please email me for further details.
