Postdoctoral Position - University of California - Los Angeles

 The Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at the University of California Los Angeles, is seeking a Postdoctoral Researcher to work in the area of remote sensing of atmospheric trace gases in the tropical upper troposphere from NASA’s Global Hawk platform.


PhD studentship: Atmosphere-biosphere exchange, Edinburgh

A fully funded PhD studentship is available at the School of GeoSciences, The University of Edinburgh/ Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, on the topic: Global-scale modelling of atmosphere-biosphere exchange and interactions between air quality and climate change.

We seek a quantitative scientist with computing skills and a strong interest in modelling air quality and climate. The studentship is open to all EU citizens with, or expected to obtain, a good science degree (UK 2i or equivalent) (e.g. physics, chemistry, computing, etc.).

There are two main aims:

  • to develop and evaluate the atmosphere-biosphere exchange scheme within the UK Chemistry-Aerosol model (UKCA);  and
  • to apply UKCA to understand and quantify key interactions between air quality and climate change.

Postdoctoral Position – CNRS Lyon

 *Post-doctoral position in *"Atmospheric Aerosol Chemistry & Air/Sea Exchanges"*

The research group focussing on atmospheric chemistry at the “/Institut de Recherches sur la Catalyse et l’Environnement de Lyon/” (IRCELYON) invites applications for a postdoctoral fellowship in Atmospheric Chemistry.

*This fellowship, for at least two years, focuses on air/sea exchanges driven by light.*

The scientific motivation of this project is the significant presence of organic compounds at the surface of the ocean. They form the link between ocean biogeochemistry through the physico-chemical processes near the water-air interface with primary and secondary aerosol formation and evolution in the air aloft and finally to the climate impact of marine boundary layer aerosols. However, their photochemistry and photosensitizer properties have only been suggested and discussed but never fully addressed because they were beyond reach. This project suggests going significantly beyond this matter of fact by a combination of innovative tools and the development of new ideas.

This project is therefore devoted to new laboratory investigations of processes occurring at the air sea interface to predict emission, formation and evolution of halogenated radicals and aerosols from this vast interface between oceans and atmosphere. It progresses from fundamental laboratory measurements, marine science, surface chemistry, photochemistry … and is therefore interdisciplinary in nature.

The successful candidate will have access to a wide range of aerosol and associated analytical facilities for both field and laboratory analyses and experimentation.

Applicants should have a background in experimental physical chemistry or physics. Postdoctoral researchers with experience in one or more of kinetics / mass spectrometry / laser photolysis measurements / flow tubes / aerosols are encouraged to apply.

A curriculum vitae, letter of intent and names, addresses and telephone number of three references must be sent electronically to Dr. Christian

Postdoc and PhD Students: Arctic Sea Ice (Univ East Anglia, UK)

Postdoc and PhD Student: Arctic Sea Ice

These positions are part of a 5-year research project funded by the European Research Council (ERC) with the overriding aim to improve our understanding of the links between the Arctic atmosphere, sea ice and the ocean and to investigate the biogeochemical processes in the sea ice under various sea ice states. To this end a new state-of the-art sea ice chamber will be constructed and operated and a hierarchy of numerical models employed.

This project is an exciting opportunity for highly motivated individuals with an interest in the technical challenge of chamber work and the scientific challenge of understanding fundamental sea ice properties and the relevance for the atmosphere.

This project will be conducted in the Centre for Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences (COAS) at the School of Environmental Sciences, University of East Anglia, Norwich, UK.

Postdoc: 30 months position; £30,728 to £36,661 per annum; Closing date: 12 noon on 6 May 2014. Further details and application form: http://tinyurl.com/naf2jda

PhD: 3.5 years of funding; Closing date: 31 May 2014.  Further details and application form: http://tinyurl.com/oggxjb6
