*Post-doctoral Scientist(s) in Atmospheric Sciences*


***Closing date: 31^st October 2013*

The Cyprus Institute (CyI) is a European non-profit science and 
technology institution based in Cyprus and led by an acclaimed Board of 
Trustees.  The research aims of the Cyprus Institute are represented by 
three research centers: the Energy Environment Water Research Center 
(EEWRC), the Science and Technology in Archaeology Research Center 
(STARC), and the Computation-based Science and Technology Research 
Center (CASTORC).

The EEWRC aims to explore issues of global significance in the fields of 
energy-, environmental- and water research, with a focus on their 
specific regional, East-Mediterranean manifestations. Its research 
agenda addresses the great challenges related to: the mitigation and 
adaptation strategies necessitated by climate change, a reduced 
dependence on hydrocarbon energy sources and achieving a low carbon 
economy through the employment of renewables (solar) and enabling a 
sustainable management of water and other natural resources in arid and 
semi-arid environments.

scientist(s) interested in atmospheric chemistry, environmental remote 
sensing and aerosol and climate modelling. The position available is in 
a dynamic team of researchers, investigating air quality and climate 
change in the Mediterranean region, funded by EC/ERC. The project aims 
to improve the understanding of aerosol and cloud processes and their 
representation in regional and global climate models (see
