Vacancy: 2 Year Postdoc Position in Atmospheric Chemistry, University of

We are looking for an exceptional researcher to work on our EXHALE project
(EXploiting new understanding of Heterogeneous production of reactive
species from AIRPRO: Links to haze and human health Effects), which is
funded by NERC and the Newton Fund. The primary aims of the project are to
quantify the production of nitrous acid (HONO) and other reactive species
from aerosol surfaces and to assess the wider-scale impact of these
processes across China on a range of scales using a variety of numerical
models. The project consists of an interdisciplinary UK/Chinese team with
complementary expertise and capabilities in both experimental and modelling
aspects of atmospheric chemistry, from the Schools of Chemistry and Earth &
Environment at the University of Leeds, and Chinese partners from Peking
University, Nanjing University and Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

You will perform laboratory experiments and run state-of-the-art numerical
models, in collaboration with a team of atmospheric scientists at the
University of Leeds and the Chinese partner universities. As part of the
project, you will participate and help organise workshops and a Summer
School in China. You will also have opportunities for training in science
and people management, science communication, and grant application writing,
with the aim to develop a personal, independent career track.

You will have a PhD (or have submitted your thesis before taking up the
role) in Chemistry, Physics, Atmospheric Science or a closely aligned
discipline, together with experience in laboratory studies of
aerosol/gas-phase processes and/or in running atmospheric models. You will
also have excellent communication skills and the ability to work under
pressure and meet deadlines.

Salary: Grade 7, £33,199 to £39,609 per annum

Fixed Term 24 months. Due to external funding restrictions, appointments
