POST-DOC POSITION - ARCTIC ATMOSPHERIC CHEMISTRY MODELINGUniversity of
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 Institute.
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 2015.
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.
