Job Details

Meteorological Synthesizing Centre – East (MSC-E), hosted by the Department of Environmental Sciences at the Jožef Stefan Institute (Ljubljana, Slovenia), is one of the research centers of the EMEP scientific program operating under the UNECE Convention on Long-Range Transboundary Air Pollution. The Centre conducts cutting-edge research and operational simulations of environmental dispersion of toxic substances on both European and global scales, with a focus on atmospheric and multi-media modeling of toxic metals and persistent organic pollutants (POPs). Comprehensive assessments provided by MSC-E on pollution trends within specific regions and countries, coupled with its assessments of transboundary pollution, serve as valuable tools for policymakers to gauge the success of pollution control measures.

 

Primary Objectives and Responsibilities:

Update and further develop the multi-media modeling approach in the GLEMOS chemical transport model for selected POPs such as polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), polychlorinated dibenzo(p)dioxins and dibenzofurans (PCDD/Fs), and hexachlorobenzene (HCB); Conduct model assessment of POP dispersion and cycling in the environment over the European region and on a global scale; Analyze modeling data and disseminate results through annual reports, journal publications and presentations at conferences.

 

Qualifications:

PhD or equivalent degree in atmospheric sciences, environmental science or other related fields (physics, chemistry, applied mathematics, etc.); Proficiency in programming languages commonly used in environmental modeling (Fortran, Python, etc.); Experience in scientific computing, numerical modelling and working with high performance computing systems (HPC); Demonstrated expertise in data analysis and interpretation of model output. Ability to work both independently and collaboratively in a multidisciplinary research environment; Fluency in written and spoken English.

 

Application Materials:

Curriculum vitae (CV); Cover letter outlining research interests, relevant experience, and career goals; A complete list of publications that demonstrate high-quality, independent and continuous research activity; Contact information for three professional references.
