Research Fellow – UK Atmospheric Greenhouse Gas monitoring using atmospheric data and transport modelling
Fixed term until 30 September 2016, to start as soon as possible
We are seeking an individual who will use Eulerian and Lagrangian (air parcel following) atmospheric chemistry and transport models and atmospheric greenhouse gas concentration data to provide estimates of UK budgets of the major anthropogenic greenhouse gases.
This work is part of the NERC consortium grant GAUGE (Greenhouse gAs Uk and Global Emissions) which aims at establishing the infrastructure for greenhouse gas emissions monitoring for the UK and involves several UK Universities. The atmospheric sampling programme is performed on a range of platforms including ships, tall towers and dedicated flights using the NERC FAAM aircraft. The successful candidate will analyse the data and design and apply appropriate estimation methods. The work will be guided and supervised by Prof. Emanuel Gloor in the School of Geography and Prof. Martyn Chipperfield in the School of Earth and Environment.
You will have a PhD in quantitative sciences (e.g. climate sciences, mathematics, or physics) by the start of the appointment, experience with geophysical fluid dynamics computer codes and ideally have experience with data assimilation methods. You should have a strong interest in environmental and climate change questions.
