We wish to appoint a Postdoctoral Research Associate to develop specific
components of an observation-led monitoring and verification system to
estimate European fossil fuel carbon dioxide emissions (ffCO2) using in
situ and remotely sensed measurements of CO2 and co-emitted tracers.
This appointment is part of the H2020 project VERIFY (SC5-04-2017) that
includes 38 partner institutes in 12 European countries, Turkey, and Russia.

At the University of Edinburgh, you will join a group of researchers
that study various aspects of Earth’s atmospheric composition. Our group
website: http://www.palmergroup.org.

You will be a highly qualified and self-motivated individual who will be
able to help refine the underlying research questions, to develop tools
to address those questions, and to deliver key scientific deliverables.
You will also be expected to present your results to the broader VERIFY
consortium and to the wider scientific community.

You will have experience in developing and applying a global 3-D
chemistry transport model, interpreting remotely sensed data, and
Bayesian inversion methods. Knowledge of FORTRAN and Python computer
languages are essential.

The post is full time for 34 months. The anticipated start date is April
