Wed Apr 29 21:31:54 MDT 2015

A postdoctoral fellow position is available at the University of 
Michigan in the research group of Prof. Kerri Pratt in the Department of 
Chemistry.The research will focus on one-dimensional modeling of Arctic 
atmospheric chemistry, with emphasis on halogen chemistry and snowpack 
photochemistry. Model results will be compared to field data from 
chemical ionization mass spectrometry measurements. This position is 
part of a National Science Foundation grant to improve our understanding 
of near-surface halogen chemistry under changing snow and sea ice 
conditions. The one-dimensional model MISTRA will be utilized in 
collaboration with Prof. Roland von Glasow at the University of East 
Anglia. The position will also include assisting in the development of a 
general chemistry laboratory course focused on snow chemistry research, 
as part of an educational grant funded by the Howard Hughes Medical 

A PhD in atmospheric science, chemistry, or a related area is required, 
as well as strong written and oral communication skills. Prior 
experience with one-dimensional or chemical transport modeling is 
desired. An interest in teaching is desired for participation in course 
development. The postdoctoral position is expected to be for two years; 
initial appointment will be for one year, with likely renewal, pending 
demonstrated progress. Preferred start date is August or early September 

To apply, please send a cover letter (describing your research 
experience and interests, as well as anticipated date of availability), 
CV, and names/contact information for 3 references to Prof. Kerri Pratt, 
email: prattka at umich.edu.
