2013-04-25: Vacancy: Postdoc/Researcher in
Atmospheric CO2 Modelling at Lund University, Sweden
The Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science is seeking to appoint a Postdoc/Researcher with a strong background in atmospheric sciences, meteorology, applied mathematics or physics to work on high resolution atmospheric CO2 modelling.
The position is part of a newly funded project within the Swedish strategic research programme in e-Science eSSENCE (http://essenceofescience.se). It is in close collaboration with the Meteorology Group within the Department of Earth Science at Uppsala University, Sweden.
The project initially focuses on the development and set up of a high-resolution atmospheric modelling system around a mesoscale atmospheric model to simulate regional atmospheric CO2 concentrations in Sweden. This system will then be included in the carbon cycle inverse modelling activities at Lund University to set up an inversion system enabling improved quantification of local CO2 sources and sinks.
The position is embedded in the wider eSSENCE project, the national Integrated Carbon Observation System – Sweden (ICOS-SE, http://www.icos-sweden.se) as well as the European ICOS infrastructure. Lund University plays a central role within ICOS-SE.
The post will be available for 24 months, with a preferred starting date of 1 September 2013.
Closing date for applications: 13 May 2013
