Hi All,

please see descriptions below for 3 air quality modeling post-doc positions
at EPA (NERL) in RTP North Carolina.  I did a post-doc with this group and
think it's a really great place to work.  Looks like the link also includes
announcements for post-doc positions at EPA in other research areas as well.

Air quality modeling colleagues,

Good news to share! The EPA-ORD post-doc program has been reinvigorated and
nearly 2 dozen federal post-doc positions are being advertised.
Applications will be accepted thru October 31, 2014. Pls share this info
with all interested parties (note that US citizenship is required for most

A brief synopsis of the three AMAD-related positions is given below.

*Multimedia Modeling of Nitrogen*

Environmental models are increasingly being called upon to address the flow
and transformation of pollutants between media (e.g., soil-air-water) and
to connect fate/transport models to health and economic decision support
tools. This project seeks to utilize expertise in computer science and
environmental modeling to design, develop, and optimize integrated models,
such as the coupled WRF-VIC-CMAQ-SWAT modeling system. This post-doc
position will especially support research needs identified in EPA/ORD’s
"Nitrogen Roadmap". (Point of contact: dennis.robin at epa.gov)

*Air Quality Modeling to Support 1-hour NAAQS*

With adoption of new 1-hour National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS)
for NO2 and SO2 and with tightening of the NAAQS for ozone and PM2.5,
advanced air quality modeling tools are needed to support implementation of
the NAAQS for the permitting of industrial facilities and to develop State
Implementation Plans (SIPs) for urban areas. This post-doc position would
assist in the development, evaluation, and application of urban/fine-scale
air quality models, which has been expressed as a high-priority need by the
Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards (OAQPS). (Point of contact:
garcia.val at epa.gov)

*Modeling Linkages and Feedbacks of CO2 on Local/Regional Air Quality*

This project will focus on modeling the feedbacks of CO2 controls of fossil
fueled power plants on regional air quality (ozone and fine particulate
matter), assessing impacts of CO2 controls on local/regional CO2
concentrations, and modeling the atmosphere-biosphere linkages to assess
feedbacks of CO2 on deposition of air pollution to vegetation and
transpiration. Effects of ozone damage to stomatal function on CO2 cycling
and other surface fluxes will also be considered. Research in this area
will broaden the Laboratory’s efforts to explore and model issues at the
climate-energy nexus. (Point of contact: Pleim.jon at epa.gov)
