The University of Bristol Atmospheric Chemistry Research Group (ACRG) is 
involved in world-class measurement and modelling activities that aim to better 
understand these changes in atmospheric composition. Projects are under way in 
the ACRG that combine data and models to investigate greenhouse gas sources and 
sinks from urban to global scales. We are seeking a post-doctoral research 
associate who will join the ACRG modelling team, which currently consists of 
three PDRAs, three PhD students, two academics, and one visiting professor. 
Depending on interests and expertise, the post holder will have the opportunity 
to join a range of on-going projects. This could include:

1. modelling megacity CO2 and CH4 and the estimation of urban emissions using 
dense in situ networks and satellite data;
2. global modelling of CO2, CH4, and/or halocarbons (e.g. CFCs, HFCs) using a 
three-dimensional atmospheric chemical transport models, and the estimation of 
sources and sinks using cutting edge Bayesian methods;
3. estimation of national-scale greenhouse gas emissions using atmospheric data 
and high resolution models;
4. development of Bayesian and big data methods for data/model fusion.

We are seeking applicants with a strong background in physical or environmental 
sciences, mathematics, or computing. The project does not require a background 
in chemistry. The work will involve modelling and statistics, but prior 
knowledge of the exact methods employed is not a requirement, if a sufficiently 
numerate and enthusiastic candidate applies. The successful applicant will need 
to work well in a team, and be able to communicate well with other researchers, 
policy makers, and the public.

You will have the opportunity to present the outcomes of your work in 
high-impact scientific journals, project meetings, and at international 
conferences (e.g. the American Geophysical Union).

The contract will be offered on an open-ended basis with funding currently 
secured for 2 years.

Prospective applicants are strongly encouraged to contact Dr Matt Rigby 
( before applying. 

The closing date for applications is 23:59 on Sunday 15th July 2018. It is 
envisaged that interviews will be held in July or August 2018. Further details 
and how to apply:
