Postdoctoral Scholar Position: Air Quality Modeling
Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering
University of California, Davis

Professor Michael Kleeman invites applications for a postdoctoral 
scholar with an interest in advanced application of air quality models 
to generate datasets for epidemiological studies of the health effects 
of airborne ultrafine particles (Dp<0.1 µm). Multiple projects are 
underway predicting composition and source-origin of airborne particles 
in the PM0.1 size fractions across spatial scales from 250m to thousands 
of km over time periods spanning several decades. The successful 
candidate will work with an existing air quality modeling system to 
generate meteorological inputs, emissions inputs, air quality model 
output, and post-processed results suitable for integration into future 
epidemiology studies.  High performance computing resources are 
available to support all project activities.

Qualified candidates will hold advanced degrees in Chemistry, 
Engineering, Atmospheric Science, or a related field with detailed 
knowledge of the techniques used to model pollutant concentration in the 
atmosphere.  Knowledge of FORTRAN is required, with further knowledge of 
C and MPI programming desirable but not necessary.  The position will 
include opportunities for model development, model application, model 
verification, and documentation of results in peer-reviewed scientific 

The position is available immediately with funding renewable annually, 
upon mutual agreement.  Salary will be commensurate with experience, and 
full benefits are included.

To apply, please send a copy of your CV, unofficial graduate transcript, 
and contact information for three references to Mike Kleeman 
(mjkleeman at ucdavis.edu).   Review of applicants will begin immediately. 
Please contact Mike Kleeman at 530-752-8386 for further information.

The University of California, Davis, is an affirmative action/equal 
opportunity employer with a strong institutional commitment to the 
development of a climate that supports equality of opportunity and 
respect for differences.
