Postdoctoral Fellow position at Institute of Geophysics Institute Faculty of Physics University of Warsaw
There is a vacancy for a postdoctoral fellow position at Institute of Geophysics, Faculty of Physics University of Warsaw within Aerosol Modeling.  The position is for a period of 2 years between 1 Feb 2016 and 31 Jun 2018.
About the project/work tasks
The position is connected to the SONATA-BIS grant nr UMO-2012/05/E/ST10/0157 entitled “Integrated studies of climate processes involving absorbing aerosols” focuses on the aerosol –climate modeling. The position will focus on:
-      estimating long-term variability of aerosol optical depth as well as black carbon optical depth in Central Europe between 1970 and 2015
-      preparation and execution climate simulations for Central Europe between 1970 and 2015 for different black carbon emission scenario
-      determination of the vertical profiles of black carbon on the radiative forcing, climate sensitivity as well as the parametrization of vertical variability of black carbon on the climate simulation results 
-      estimation radiative forcing and climate sensitivity of black carbon deposited on snow surface in Central Europe.     
-    applicants must have achieved a PhD or equivalent in meteorology, oceanography, physics, or related fields, or have presented the dissertation for assessment by the closing date for applications.
-       candidates must have a strong background in aerosol and climate and should have good knowledge of climate dynamics proven experience with simulation of aerosol optical properties, radiative transfer and climate modeling
-       excellent skills are required in programming and performing simulations with general circulation models and analysis of observations and model data
-       proven experience of MATLAB or IDL as well as FOTRAN language
-       proficiency in both written and oral English
-       the candidate will work in a lively research environment and should have good team working skills
-       encourage people with disabilities to apply for this position.
We can offer:
-                     a good and professionally challenging working environment
