2 Postdoctoral Research Positions: Atmospheric Chemistry-Climate Interactions, UK

Applications are invited for two post-doctoral researchers to undertake numerical modelling studies of the interaction between atmospheric chemistry processes and the climate system. One position will be based in the Department of Chemistry with Professor John Pyle and will focus on aspects of modelling the chemistry of the troposphere and stratosphere. The second will be based in the Department of Applied Mathematics with Professor Peter Haynes and will focus on dynamical interactions, including stratosphere-troposphere coupling. Both post-holders will be expected to interact strongly with the existing chemistry-climate modelling group in the Department of Chemistry.

Applicants should have (or be about to receive) a PhD in atmospheric science, physical chemistry, applied mathematics, or a related subject, and should have experience with numerical modelling in a research context.

Scholarship Application Deadline:15 April 2011
