PostDoc in Polar Atmospheric Chemistry Modelling at British Antarctic Survey:
PostDoc in Polar Atmospheric Chemistry Modelling
Start: 1 October 2017
Duration: 20 months
We are looking for an enthusiastic and driven researcher to support the NERC funded project
ISOL-ICE. The post holder
will be based at the British Antarctic Survey in Cambridge (UK) and will carry out 3-D simulations of stratospheric ozone, using the
UKESM, to investigate the responses of stratospheric ozone, particularly over the Antarctic, to three potential perturbations: (a) solar radiation, (b) volcanic eruptions and (c) natural production of very short-lived halocarbons from the oceans. Model simulations
will be compared to estimates of past column ozone above Antarctica during the last 1 kyr based on an ice core drilled for this project in 2016/17. The post holder will be expected to prioritise modelling tasks, design and perform model experiments and analyse
their outcome. Findings will be published in peer-reviewed journals.
The post requires a smart, self-motivated scientist with a strong background in both numerical simulation, and ideally in atmospheric chemistry (not essential). The successful candidate will have proven experience
in running global climate or chemistry models in high performance computer systems.
