Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge? Do you have a background in atmospheric science?  Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research intensive Universities?

We are searching for a specialist in experimental atmospheric analysis to work as a Research Fellow on the remaining 9 months of the ongoing UK Natural Environment Research Council funded Large Grant Project Black and Bloom (Microbial processes darken and accelerate the melting of the Greenland Ice Sheet). You will be focusing on research related to atmospheric particulate research. 

The aim of the post is to carry out research related to atmospheric processes and particulate aerosol delivery to the Greenland Ice Sheet. You may be part of a field campaign to Greenland, which will aim at assessing how for example BC aethalometer data and optical particle counter size distributions can be integrated with other organic and inorganic analyses of airborne particulates.

You will have a PhD and research experience in atmospheric science with a strong track-record in sample collection and data analysis ideally with a particular focus on aerosols.
