Research Associate Position in Greenhouse Gas Remote Sensing at University of Leicester, UK

The position is initially for 2 years
Salary Grade 7 - £31,644 to £36,661 per annum

At Leicester we're going places. Ranked in the top 20 universities in Britain our aim is to climb further. A commitment to high quality fused with an inclusive academic culture is our hallmark and led the Times Higher Education to describe us as "elite without being elitist".
Satellite remote sensing of major greenhouse gases such as CO2 and CH4 is a novel research area that can lead to a much better understanding of sources and sinks of these greenhouse gases. This will not only help to develop more reliable forecasts of our future climate but it will also provide key data in support of policy makers involved in efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The European Space Agency ESA has recently launched a major activity for the development of essential climate variables from satellite observations which includes greenhouse gases (GHG-CCI project) as one of their themes. Our group at University of Leicester is one of the main partners for the greenhouse gas theme.

We are seeking a Research Associate for the ESA GHG-CCI project to further evolve our retrieval methods for CO2 and CH4 from satellites and to apply it the Japanese GOSAT satellite and the upcoming NASA OCO-2 mission to generate global, well characterized long-term datasets that will allow detailed assessments of model calculations.
Informal enquiries are welcome and should be made to Dr Hartmut Boesch on hb100 at le.ac.uk<mailto:hb100 at le.ac.uk> or 0116 252 2273.
