Postdoctoral Research Scientist Atmospheric Sciences, Columbia University, USA

The successful candidate will work on a project that aims to understand the transport processes from lower latitudes to the Arctic region and the underlying dynamical mechanisms. The work will involve the use of a combination of observations, comprehensive and idealized climate model experiments, to examine the performance of the state-of-the-art global climate models in the representation of long-range transport processes into the Arctic and the associated timescales with links to a broad range of chemical species such as black carbon and others. With the use of both comprehensive and idealized models, the work will also investigate the linkage between dynamics and transport and help pinpoint potential model deficiencies in simulating the transport processes.

Minimum Degree Required
