[Met-jobs] Postdoctoral position available at the laboratoire de Météorologie physique (LaMP/CNRS) Physics Clermont Ferrand, France

A postdoctoral position
is available at the Laboratoire de Météorologie Physiques
(LaMP/CNRS), at the University Blaise
Pascal, Clermont Ferrand, France. The successful candidate will
participate in
airborne measurements aboard the French research aircraft
(ATR-42) within the
European FP7 project DACCIWA (Dynamics-aerosol-chemistry-cloud
interactions in West Africa, http://www.dacciwa.eu). The
airborne field campaign is
planned for June-July 2016, in Togo, West Africa.

The
postdoctoral position will involve:

1)    
The operation, analysis, and
interpretation of aerosol and gas measurements
including aerosol number concentration and size distribution
(CPC, SMPS), aerosol
chemical composition (C-ToF-AMS), and gas-phase measurements.

2)    
Combining aerosol measurements with
gas-phase measurements to interpret
aerosol formation and evolution processes.

3)    
Combining aerosol measurements with
in-situ cloud microphysics
measurements to study aerosol cloud interactions.

The candidate should hold a Ph.D.
in
environmental science/engineering, chemistry, chemical
engineering, or a
related discipline. Experience with mass spectrometry and data
analysis
(Matlab/Python/IGOR) skills are highly desirable. The initial
appointment will
be for one year, renewable for an additional year based on
performance. Ideally
we would like the candidate by June 2016. All qualified
candidates are
encouraged to apply and they should send a CV and names of at
least two
references to e.freney@opgc.univ-bpclermont.fr.

Please forward to anyone who
might be interested
