Postdoctoral Scholar-Air Quality Modeling


The Computational Environmental Sciences Laboratory at UC Irvine welcomes applications for a position as a Postdoctoral Scientist to develop computational tools to study atmospheric chemistry processes and their interactions with the meteorology related to secondary particulate matter.
Preferred experience: strong knowledge of three-dimensional air-quality models (e.g., CMAQ), working knowledge of SMOKE, UNIX, FORTRAN, and excellent oral and written communication skills. Knowledge of MPI is desirable but not necessary. The successful candidate will work with an existing air-quality modeling system to generate meteorological inputs, update modules related to the dynamics of secondary organic aerosols, and prepare emissions and meteorological input as well as post-process results.

The successful candidate should hold a Ph.D. degree in engineering or another field relevant to air quality. The appointment is for one year starting approximately May 2016 with renewal to a second year if progress is satisfactory.

To apply, please send a copy of your CV, unofficial graduate transcript and contact information for three references to Donald Dabdub ( Review of applicants will begin immediately.

The candidate should be available for a start date during the May 1– May 31, 2016 period and be willing to commit to at least a one-year stay. Renewal of the appointment can be offered contingent upon the availability of adequate funding. The salary and benefits will be competitive for a postdoctoral position in the university.
