Research Fellow in Atmospheric Chemistry
University of Birmingham

Applications are invited for the post of Postdoctoral Research Fellow in 
Atmospheric Chemistry, in the group of Dr William Bloss at the University of 
Birmingham.  The Research Fellow will contribute to ongoing NERC-funded 
atmospheric chemistry projects in the areas of either field and laboratory 
studies, or numerical modelling :

(i) Measurement of atmospheric ozone production and chemical reaction rates, in 
particular the development of new instrumentation to perform in-situ 
measurements of integrated ozone chemistry in the boundary layer
(ii) Modelling atmospheric chemical processing through the use of 
zero-dimensional photochemical box models (employing the MCM).

The post will be based in Birmingham, and will potentially combine aspects of : 
laboratory work (instrument development and testing) and/or field measurements 
for short periods (1-3 weeks) in the UK and potentially overseas and/or model 
simulations of current and previous field data.  The precise balance of duties 
will depend upon the skills, experience and interests of the successful 
applicant.  The applicant will work alongside existing members of the research 
group (PDRAs, PhD students).  

The Research Fellow will also be involved with dissemination of project results 
through peer-reviewed journal publications and presentations at international 
conferences, and will be expected to assist in the supervision of PhD and MSc 
students in related areas.  Further details of the research group, staff and 
ongoing projects may be found at:
 http://www.birmingham.ac.uk/research/activity/environmental-health/index.aspx

The post is available from July 2016, or as soon as possible thereafter, for a 
duration of 6 months in the first instance, although there is scope to extend 
the appointment for at least a further 12 months.  Interviews will be held on 
Weds 13th July.

Potential candidates are encouraged to contact Prof William (Bill) Bloss for 
informal discussions, via email to w.j.bloss@bham.ac.uk.
