Department of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign invites applications for Postdoctoral Researcher Opportunity

One Postdoctoral Researcher position is open at the Department of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, starting in May 2011. The successful candidate will work on developing a state-of-the-art regional model representation of nighttime chemistry building on existing model capabilities of the community model WRF/Chem. The NOAA-funded project involves improving the understanding of interaction of transport and chemistry during nighttime, quantifying the impact of nighttime chemistry for chlorine cycling, nitrate formation and ozone production, and validating the model with field observations from the CalNeX Campaign 2010.

The initial appointment is for one year with the possibility of renewal for two additional years based on performance and continuation of funding. The stipend depends on qualifications. The applicant must have a Ph.D. in atmospheric sciences or a related field, with experience in regional modeling of atmospheric chemistry. Advanced scientific programming skills are essential and previous experience with WRF/Chem is highly desirable.

To apply for this opportunity please email a cover letter, brief research statement, CV including publications list, and contact information for three persons willing to serve as references to Dr. Nicole Riemer at nriemer at illinois.edu. Screening of applications will begin on January 31 2011 and will continue until the position is filled.
