Postdoc: WRF-Chem modelling of the Importance of Marine Gases and
Particles for Tropospheric Chemistry
In this project the 3D regional atmospheric chemistry model WRF-Chem
will be used to investigate chemical processes in the marine atmosphere
with a focus on halogen compounds and links between halogen and organic
chemistry and how they influence the oxidation capacity of the
atmosphere and climate forcing. The model results will be evaluated with
results from the recent TORERO and EqPOS campaigns in the East Pacific
and with data from the North Atlantic. This is an exciting opportunity
for someone who is interested in the technical challenge of modifying
and running a regional 3D model and the scientific challenge of
understanding atmospheric chemistry of the marine atmosphere including
the role of meteorological forcing.
The successful candidate will have a PhD in atmospheric or related
sciences (or equivalent experience) and ideally experience with a
regional 3D model. This is a full time 36 month post (£30,728 to £36,661
per annum), with an intended start date of 01/06/2014 or soonest thereafter.
Closing date: 12 noon on 6 May 2014. Further details and application
