[Met-jobs] Post-doc position in Arctic atmospheric chemistry modeling

postdoctoral fellow position is available at the University of
Michigan (Ann Arbor, MI, USA) 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.

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.

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@umich.edu.
