Job announcement 23 Jan 2012: 2 positions (Full/associate and assistant professor) in Atmospheric Composition modelling and Observations, Groningen (NL)
Faculty Positions (Full Professor and Tenture Track Assistent Professor) in Atmospheric Composition Modelling and Observations
The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences has vacancies for two positions in the atmospheric greenhouse gases group of the Centre for Isotope Research (CIO), which is part of the Energy and Sustainability Research Institute Groningen (ESRIG). One of the positions is a modeller, the other an observationalist.
The first candidate is expected to lead this group, and to extend the present, mainly observation-oriented group by a substantial modelling effort. The second candidate is expected to lead the present atmospheric observational programme of the CIO, directed to greenhouse gases and related tracers. Their experience and innovative ideas, and their fruitful interaction should develop the group into a leading international research group in this field. They have to be able to base the work to a large extent on external funding.
Both are excellent teachers who can motivate students of different disciplines and will develop new courses on specific topics about this subject in the BSc and the MSc programmes. Teaching duties include the supervision of bachelor, master and PhD students.
Closing date : 5 March 2012
For information you can contact:
Prof. H.A.J. Meijer, Scientific Director, ESRIG, + 31 50 3634760, firstname.lastname@example.org

Job announcement 2-12-2011: PhD Atmospheric Science/Inverse Modelling of Halogenated Greenhouse Gas Emissions at EMPA (CH)
The PhD project will include a thorough analysis of the available halocarbon measurement data, and its combination with state-of-the art atmospheric transport models to estimate the European emissions of a wide range of halocarbons down to the country level. Furthermore, campaigns will be performed in Southern Europe (Spain and Crete). The PhD candidate will use a specifically designed gas chromatograph-mass spectrometer (GCMS) to perform measurements of halogenated greenhouse gases in these still under sampled regions of Europe. These campaigns will contribute significantly to filling gaps in the European observation network, and is an important step towards a Pan-European system for the inverse modelling of greenhouse gas emissions.
We are looking for a highly motivated candidate with a Master degree in Environmental/Earth Sciences, Chemistry, Meteorology or Physics. The candidate should be interested in a challenging position between analytical chemistry (including field work) and modelling of atmospheric processes for detection of greenhouse gas emissions. Results of the study will be published in the peer-reviewed literature and will bepresented at international work shops and at the bi-annual AGAGE meetings.
This 3-year PhD project is a joint initiative of the Laboratory for Air Pollution/Environmental Technology (Empa) and IACETH (Prof. Thomas Peter, ETH Zuerich).
For further information contact Dr. Stefan Reimann, phone +41 58 765 46 38, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Job announcement 2-12-2011: Postdoc Position Analysis of atmospheric trace gases /Atmospheric Science at EMPA (CH)
The Postdoc position is focused on advancing measurements of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), nitrogen oxides (NOx) and Non-CO2 greenhouse gases (halocarbons, methane, nitrous oxide) in the atmosphere. These activities are embedded in two European (FP7)
infrastructure projects (ACTRIS and InGOS), aiming at progressing measurement techniques for these atmospheric trace gases in Europe.
For this 3-year position we are looking for a highly motivated candidate with a PhD degree in Chemistry, Physics, Environmental/Earth sciences or Meteorology. The Post-doc position will require both a sound knowledge of analytical chemistry (preferably of atmospheric trace gases) and negotiating skills during discussions with European key players in the field of air
pollution monitoring and Non-CO2 greenhouse gas measurements.
For further information please contact Dr. Stefan Reimann, phone +41 58 765 46 38, e-mail: email@example.com

Info from: Richard van Engelen, ECMWF
The main duty of the post is to work on the assimilation of greenhouse gases within the MACC-II project:
- Develop further the assimilation of satellite data on CO2 and CH4 in the Integrated Forecasting System (IFS)
- Explore the potential of assimilating in situ CO2 and CH4 data
- Assess the performance of the data assimilation system for these variables
- Collaborate closely with the MACC-II consultant working on greenhouse-gas modelling on issues such as biases, model deficiencies and background error representation
- Collaborate with MACC-II consultants working on reactive gases to study interactions through the oxidising capacity of the atmosphere
- Ensure developments on greenhouse-gas assimilation are integrated with other developments within the Satellite Data Section, for mutual benefits regarding atmospheric composition and NWP
- Liaise as required with other partners within the MACC-II subproject on greenhouse gases, in particular with regard to the inference of surface fluxes from atmospheric analyses of CO2 and CH4
Typically within the range of £3,920.00 to £5,429.00 per month net of tax, depending upon qualifications, experience, personal situation and eligibility for expatriation allowance.

Length of contract: Until 31 July 2014 (the end of the MACC-II project).
One year postdoctoral position at INRA-EGC (near Paris) focusing on simulating N2O emissions with the CERES-EGC model: calibration, improvement and validation using measurement data representative of typical French agricultural practices.
Job starts at 1 Jan 2012.
