The link to the position is at:

NCAR - NCAR Earth System Laboratory (NESL)

Atmospheric Chemistry Division (ACD)

Basic Function of Job:  The Postdoctoral Researcher will work as part of 
interdisciplinary teams that are working on cookstove intervention 
experiments in West Africa and China. The Postdoctoral Research will 
conduct original research and engage in group research using the Weather 
Research Forecasting Model with Chemistry (WRF-Chem) to investigate the 
impact of cooking technologies on emissions, chemistry and climate. The 
Post-Doctoral Researcher will use laboratory and field measurements to 
develop emissions inventories and scenarios, and use WRF-chem to 
simulate air quality and climate.


Works with team members to develop emission inventories for the study 
region. Designs and conducts modeling experiments with WRF-chem. Uses 
in-situ measurements and satellite observations to evaluate the results. 
Analyzes WRF-Chem data with respect to other observations and in-situ 

Collaborates with other researchers and team members to analyze modeling 
and measurement results. Communicates the results of the research 
through publication in peer-reviewed journals, book chapters, meeting 
proceedings, presentations at scientific meetings, and contributions to 
scientific assessments.

Will work safely in accordance with ACD and NESL procedures, the 
Employee Safety Handbook and the UCAR Safety Manual.  Will report 
injuries and unsafe conditions to supervisor and the Safety Office


Education & Experience:

  * Ph.D. in physics, atmospheric science or equivalent.
  * Demonstrated record of research and publication.

Knowledge, Skills and Abilities:

  * Detailed knowledge of fundamental processes controlling atmospheric
    chemistry and transport.
  * Familiarity with global and regional chemical transport models, so
    as to be able to run simulations and to customize the model code and
    inputs for specific studies, along with analyzing the results.
  * Skill in the analysis and interpretation of experimental results.
  * Ability to participate and interact productively in
    multidisciplinary research.
  * Ability to work both independently and collaboratively on scientific
  * Detailed knowledge of differential and integral equations, numerical
    and statistical methods and linear algebra.
  * Skills in written and oral communication of research results and
    presentation of proposals.
  * Skills in UNIX, FORTRAN and IDL.

*DESIRED (but not required)*:

  * Experience using the WRF-chem model.
