Dear All,


Please find below an advertisement for multiple open PhD positions at the University of Houston.


Sincerely,

Anirban Roy


We are looking for multiple PhD students to join our real-time air quality forecasting group at the University of Houston. The successful applicants will investigate air pollution at the urban-to-regional scale, with a primary focus over the continental United States or Asia. The research will be carried out in conjunction with important stakeholders, both at the US and international level. The focus will be on numerical air quality modeling, to develop accurate chemical transport algorithms, using inverse modeling to improve emissions inventories, update existing chemistry modules using machine learning approaches. Complementary research themes can include public policy applications, such as the air quality and cost benefits of motor vehicle electrification, investigating the air quality impacts of upset events, and determining solar flux as a function of multiple parameters such as position, season and time of the day.


Candidates are expected to have a master’s/bachelor’s degree (or be in the final stages of completing one) in an atmospheric science/engineering and public policy related field. Experience with technical computing/scripting languages (including Linux, FORTRAN, and scripting languages such as Perl, Python, or R) is essential. Knowledge of atmospheric aerosol chemistry and prior experience with either regional-scale models such as WRF-Chem/ CMAQ /CAMx/PMCAMx, or higher resolution models would be an advantage. Candidates should be fluent in written and spoken English.


Additional details about our group are available online: http://spock.geosc.uh.edu. Interested candidates should send a copy of their CV and contact information for three (3) references to Dr. Yunsoo Choi, ychoi6@uh.edu.
