Reference: 014173 Closing date: 22 November 2016


We are looking for an enthusiastic and self-motivated scientist to contribute to ongoing national and international projects on air quality forecasting and analysis of atmospheric processes that influence air quality and atmospheric composition on multiple scales. While this post is initially available for 18 months, we will expect to continue the post depending on availability of funding.


You must have a good first degree in a relevant science subject (e.g. Physics, Mathematics or Meteorology) and a PhD in a topic related to atmospheric process modelling including a theoretical understanding of boundary layer physics, dynamics and transformation processes. You will have strong experience in the development and/or use of advanced atmospheric models (e.g. WRF-CMAQ or WRF-Chem). You may also have some experience in the use of laboratory and field observations for atmospheric process analysis or use of modelling for investigating interactions between atmospheric composition and climate. In addition to having excellent communication skills, you will have a strong commitment to publishing papers in high quality journals.


The School of Physics, Astronomy and Mathematics takes pride in the diversity of its staff, and is a Practitioner in the IOP’s Project Juno, as well as holding Athena SWAN Bronze award.
