Postdoctoral position in air quality modelling

Do you know of anyone who might be interested in a postdoctoral position in air quality modeling? The group I work in at Utah State University is focused on energy and the environment. We are located in Vernal, an area of intensive oil and gas development, and a lot of our work revolves around high wintertime ozone we experience here during some winters. We are looking for someone with sufficient experience in WRF and CAMx (and/or CMAQ) to hit the ground running. The position would entail modeling inversion meteorology and winter ozone production. This is a relatively new area of study, and the work promises to be very scientifically and politically relevant, including opportunities not just to publish in peer-reviewed journals, but also to provide information relevant to and participate in SIP development and other regulatory processes.

The position is in Vernal, UT — a very rural area. Due to this, we are prepared to offer an extremely competitive compensation package to the right candidate.

I’ve attached a short position announcement. If you could pass this information along to anyone you know of that might be interested, I would appreciate it.

Thanks a lot.
