My apologies for cross-postings:

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Edinburgh to develop methods that will help estimate European fossil fuel CO2 emissions (ffCO2). The project will achieve this by using computational models together with in situ and remotely sensed measurements of CO2 and co-emitted trace gases.

The project is part of the H2020 VERIFY project (SC5-04-2017) that includes 38 partners institutes and 12 European countries, Turkey, and Russia.

You will join a group of researchers studying various aspects of atmospheric composition, including fluxes from land and ocean surface processes. The group uses in situ and remotely sensed measurements, computers models, and advanced data analysis techniques to improve fundamental understanding of atmosphere composition. The group website:

The ideal candidate will be a quantitative scientist in a relevant discipline with peer-review publications in leading journals. They will also have proven experience using FORTRAN and Python computer languages.

For further details of the post, please see:

The closing date for this position is 19th October 2018, with interviews scheduled for late November 2018. The anticipated start date for the post is February 2019. It is a full-time post for 34 months.
