Research Assistant/Associate in greenhouse gas inverse modelling
Atmospheric Chemistry Research Group, University of Bristol, UK
University of Bristol reference: ACAD100118
Salary: £30,424- £38,522, profile level A or B, depending on experience, 36
month initial contract
Closing date for applications: 26th April 2013

You will take a leading role in the £3m NERC-funded Greenhouse gAs Global
and Uk Emissions (GAUGE) project. GAUGE aims to develop pioneering
greenhouse gas (GHG) measurement and modeling techniques, to constrain UK
and global emissions at higher accuracy and resolution than ever before.
Based in the Atmospheric Chemistry Research Group (ACRG) at the University
of Bristol, you will work closely with Dr Matt Rigby, Prof Simon O’Doherty
and Dr Alistair Manning from the UK Met Office to deliver UK and global
emissions estimates of CO2, CH4 and N2O. You will work closely with GAUGE
partners at the Universities of Edinburgh, Cambridge, Leicester, Leeds and
Manchester, the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology and Rutherford Appleton
Laboratory, to derive emissions from the diverse new range of GAUGE
measurements (including satellite, aircraft, ship and tower-based
observations). Your work will primarily focus on the development of inverse
modelling techniques using the UK Met Office NAME regional model at very
high resolution and the NCAR MOZART global model. The role represents a
unique opportunity for an ambitious early career researcher to make a
significant impact on this rapidly evolving field.

Critical skills and experience:
•   A PhD in a physical science, mathematics or computing
•   A good background in computing (experience with
IDL/MatLab/Python/Fortran and high-performance computing would be
•   Ability to work innovatively with minimal supervision, to plan and
organise your own time to achieve a high level of productivity, and to lead
scientific projects

You will have excellent opportunities to develop supervisory, written,
teaching and leadership skills and therefore this post provides ideal
training for a career in academia or industry. Duties will include helping
with the training and supervision of PhD and final year project students.

The post will be offered at either Research Assistant or Associate level,
depending on experience. Post-doctoral Research Associates will be expected
to take more of a leadership role in the project, and will already have
post-doctoral research experience.

Enquires to Dr Matt Rigby (matt.rigby at bristol.ac.uk) and Prof Simon
O’Doherty (s.odoherty at bristol.ac.uk).
