We seek to appoint a Senior Research Associate at the Lancaster Environment Centre to contribute to an exciting new NERC-funded project “Quantifying and Reducing Uncertainty in the Processes Controlling Tropospheric Ozone and OH”.
This project will apply new statistical approaches and uncertainty analysis to atmospheric chemistry models, allowing us to quantify the importance of different processes, explain the diversity in model assessments of past and future atmospheric composition change, and attribute observed changes to specific causes. The project involves national and international collaborators and will inform future international assessments of atmospheric composition and climate, such as those of the IPCC.
You should have (or be about to complete) a Ph.D. in atmospheric modelling, applied statistics, or a related quantitative discipline. You should have experience in developing and running numerical models and/or in model emulation and data analysis. Experience evaluating models against complex observational datasets would be an advantage.
This is a fixed term post for up to 36 months starting in October 2015 or at a mutually agreed date.
Informal enquiries: Oliver Wild (o.wild at lancaster.ac.uk<mailto:o.wild at lancaster.ac.uk>).
