Research Fellow in Global Aerosol Modelling at Univ. Leeds, U.K.
(Fixed Term, 11 months).

Thepostis part of the MACC (Monitoring Atmospheric Composition and
Climate) project, a major consortium since 2009 involving over 40
partner institutions across Europe funded via the EU Framework Programme 7.

The GLOMAP-mode aerosol microphysics module
(http://www.researchpages.net/glomap)  has been implemented into the
ECMWF Integrated Forecasting System as an improved forward model for
global aerosol forecasts and re-analyses.  Within MACC-II, an improved
configuration of “IFS-GLOMAP” which runs coupled to the tropospheric
chemistry module C-IFS has now been developed.

The post will involve analysis/visualisation of output from simulations
with C-IFS-GLOMAP and IFS-GLOMAP and evaluating the model against a
range of benchmark observational datasets.

The scientific aspects will involve assessing the improvements in model
skill with the coupling to atmospheric chemistry, including the effects
of resolving online aerosol-chemistry interactions such as heterogeneous
chemistry and aerosol impacts on photolysis.

You will have a PhD (or be close to obtaining one) and research
interests in atmospheric modelling, with expertise either in atmospheric
chemistry/aerosol processes or modelling of other complex systems. You
will have proven skills in numerical modelling in fortran and data
visualisation/analysis techniques. You must have a demonstrable
commitment to publication of research findings at an international
level, as your role will involve leading a peer-reviewed journal article.

The post will be based in the School of Earth and Environment within the
aerosol modelling group (http://www.see.leeds.ac.uk/aerosol/)which is
carrying out a range of research topics, including volcanic impacts on
climate and air quality, modelling aerosol-cloud interactions and
quantifying uncertainty in aerosol-climate models

Pay will be at Univ. Leeds Grade 7 (£30,424 - £36,298). Closing date is
3^rd July 2013.
