Senior Research Associate at Lancaster University (UK)
Global Modelling: Impact of Halogenated Very Short-Lived Substances on Atmospheric Composition
Grade 7: £33,518 to £38,832
Closing Date: Sunday 8th October 2017
Applications are invited for a Senior Postdoctoral Research Associate at Lancaster University to work on the NERC-funded SISLAC (“Sources and Impacts of Short-Lived Anthropogenic Chlorine”) project.
The 2.5 year post will involve the development and application of a chemistry-climate model to examine the impact of very short-lived substances (VSLS) on atmospheric composition. The atmospheric abundance of certain anthropogenic VSLS, such as dichloromethane (CH2Cl2), is increasingly rapidly. The successful candidate will implement a treatment of CH2Cl2 and related VSLS into the UKCA chemistry-climate model, and evaluate the model against a range of observations. Simulations will be performed to quantify the impact of VSLS on tropospheric and stratospheric composition now and in the future, including the impact of continued VSLS growth on ozone layer recovery timescales and subsequent climate impacts.
You should have (or be about to complete) a Ph.D. in atmospheric science – preferably with an element of atmospheric chemistry – or a related quantitative discipline. You should have experience in developing and/or running numerical models, and in data analysis. Experience using chemistry-climate models and model evaluation against complex observational datasets would be an advantage.
Informal enquiries should be directed to Ryan Hossaini (
