[ES_JOBS_NET] Post-doc position in Arctic atmospheric chemistry modeling

A
postdoctoral fellow position
is available at the University of Michigan in the research group
of Prof. Kerri
Pratt in the Department of Chemistry.  The
research will focus on one-dimensional modeling of Arctic
atmospheric
chemistry, with emphasis on halogen chemistry and snowpack
photochemistry.
Model results will be compared to field data from chemical
ionization mass
spectrometry measurements. This position is part of a National
Science
Foundation grant to improve our understanding of near-surface
halogen chemistry
under changing snow and sea ice conditions. The one-dimensional
model MISTRA
will be utilized in collaboration with Prof. Roland von Glasow
at the
University of East Anglia. The position will also include
assisting in the development
of a general chemistry laboratory course focused on snow
chemistry research, as
part of an educational grant funded by the Howard Hughes Medical
Institute.

A PhD
in atmospheric science, chemistry,
or a related area is required, as well as strong written and
oral communication
skills. Prior experience with
one-dimensional or chemical transport modeling is desired. An
interest in teaching is desired
for participation in course development. The postdoctoral
position is expected
to be for two years; initial appointment will be for one year,
with likely
renewal, pending demonstrated progress. Preferred start date is
August or early
September 2015.

To
apply, please send a cover
letter (describing your research experience and interests, as
well as
anticipated date of availability), CV, and names/contact
information for 3
references to Prof. Kerri Pratt, email: prattka at umich.edu.
