[Met-jobs] VACANCY at U. Edinburgh: Postdoctoral Research Associate in modelling the chemical composition of the global troposphere

From Paul Palmer <pip@ed.ac.uk>
To met-jobs@lists.reading.ac.uk

Objective of post:

To interpret observed variations of reactive trace gases and aerosol particles measured by ground-based and airborne instruments, and by Earth-orbiting satellites. This will be achieved by using cutting-edge atmospheric chemistry transport model and inverse model techniques, and also working closely with UK, European and international measurement teams. 


Within this project you will 1) develop an established atmospheric chemistry transport model (GEOS-Chem, http://acmg.seas.harvard.edu/geos/) to understand observations of reactive trace gases (e.g., halogenated compounds, tropospheric ozone, methane, nitrogen dioxide, and formaldehyde) and aerosol particles, building on previous group research; 2) confront the chemistry transport model with a range of data from international measurement campaigns and Earth-orbiting satellites; and 3) use an inverse model approach to infer land surface emissions of trace gases from observed trace gas variations. The work will be undertaken in cooperation with other research teams.

Start date: before late NH Summer 2016.
Duration:
This post is fixed term for 2 years.
