Postdoc: WRF-Chem modelling of marine atmosphere (Univ East Anglia, UK)

Author: | published date:2014-04-22

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
