Senior Research Associate - Modelling Air Pollution in Beijing

Lancaster Environment Centre, Lancaster University

Grade 7:   £32,600 to £37,768
Closing Date: Monday 30th May

Applications are invited for a Senior Postdoctoral Research Associate at
the Lancaster Environment Centre to model air pollution emissions and
processing in Beijing as part of the NERC/Newton Fund programme "Air
Pollution and Human Health in a Chinese Megacity".

The project will apply newly-developed nested regional models of atmospheric
chemistry and transport to investigate the key emission sources contributing
to poor air quality, the role of haze in altering chemical processing of
pollutants, and the downscaling of air pollution models to the street level
to allow assessment of health impacts. The underlying goals are to develop
a better understanding of pollution formation, to improve predictive
capability, and to inform mitigation options. The project involves national
and international collaborators and will involve travel to work with Chinese
scientists in Beijing.

You should have (or be about to complete) a PhD in atmospheric science,
meteorology or a related quantitative discipline. You should have experience
in developing and running numerical models, and in data analysis. Experience
with air pollution models, radiation schemes, and model evaluation against
complex observational datasets would be an advantage. You should have
demonstrated independence, good communication skills and a willingness to
work effectively in a multidisciplinary international environment. You will
be expected to present results at national and international meetings and
to write up results for publication in leading scientific journals.

This is a fixed term post for up to 30 months starting in October 2016 or
at a mutually agreed date. Informal enquiries should be directed to Oliver
Wild (
