Postdoc: Numerical modelling of snow photochemistry
The aim of this position is to improve an existing 1D model of snow
photochemistry, expand and evaluate it against various sets of field data
and laboratory results. Furthermore photochemical processes involving sea
ice will be included. Based on the outcome of this, a simplified version
will be developed for inclusion into regional and global 3D models such as
WRF-Chem and UKCA. This is an exciting opportunity for someone who is
interested in the technical challenge of scientific code development and
the scientific challenge of understanding fundamental snow and sea ice
processes and the relevance for the atmosphere.
This position is part of a 5-year research project funded by the European
Research Council (ERC) with the overriding aim to improve our understanding
of the links between the Arctic atmosphere, sea ice and snow.
The successful candidate will have a degree in natural sciences or a
related field and ideally experience with numerical modelling including 3D
modelling. This is a full time 24 month post, with an intended start date
of 1 January 2015 or soonest thereafter.
This project will be conducted in the Centre for Ocean and Atmospheric
Sciences (COAS) at the School of Environmental Sciences, University of East
Anglia, Norwich, UK.
£31,342 to £37,394 per annum; Closing date: 12 noon on 07 Nov 2014. Further
