[Met-jobs] Postdoctoral position in modeling bio-aerosols and clouds, Lund

Postdoctoral fellow in atmospheric modeling with a focus on bio-aerosols and clouds

Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science, Lund University. Closing date: 24 February 2016.

Work description:

The work will involve numerical modelling and laboratory observations:

* Samples of bio-aerosols from Brazil will be analysed in our laboratories with microbiological and molecular-biological techniques.

* Our cloud models will be improved so as to resolve the ice-nucleus (IN) and cloud-condensation nucleus (CCN) activity of each type of PBAPs.

* Individual clouds will be simulated by our aerosol-cloud models, with analysis of the effects from the various types of PBAPs.

* Amazonian mesoscale convective systems will be studied in the same way.

Qualifications:

Scientists with a strong background in numerical modeling, with knowledge of mesoscale meteorology, are encouraged to apply. Candidates must have a BSc degree in Physics or Biology, in addition to the PhD degree in Meteorology.

Candidates must have experience with programming languages in a UNIX environment, such as FORTRAN or C.

Additionally, candidates must have examined proficiency, preferably from their university education, in:- (1) biology and laboratory experimentation; (2) mathematics, especially calculus; (3) numerical methods and/or computer programming; and (4) physical meteorology (e.g. cloud physics).

Experience would be advantageous in optical or electron microscopy. Examined proficiency in microbiology would be advantageous.

In their applications, candidates should provide evidence for how they meet these requirements.

This position is a qualifying appointment focused on research, with intention to be an initial career step.

Lund University welcomes applicants with diverse backgrounds and experiences. We regard gender equality and diversity as a strength and an asset.
