Research Fellowship in Haze Impacts of Indonesian Peatland Fires
- University of Leeds
- Location: Leeds, United Kingdom
- Job Number: 7112197 (Ref #: ENVEE1604)
- Posting Date: Sep 30, 2022
Are you an ambitious scientist inspired to work in a multi-disciplinary team to develop solutions to a major environmental problem? Do you have a PhD in environmental science, an established background in modelling atmospheric pollution and a commitment to solutions-focused work?
This exciting position will use advanced numerical models to assess the impacts of Indonesian peat fires on atmospheric pollution (haze). You will be part of a large multi-disciplinary team working for the KaLi Project, a collaboration between Indonesian and UK universities. The KaLi Project aims to explore drivers and impacts of Indonesian fires and to identify routes to build resilience through sustainable development. You will work to update estimates of peatland fire emissions through including the latest information on peatland fire emission factors. Working with other team members you will analyse how different interventions can reduce peatland fire and use numerical models combined with updated emission datasets to assess the impacts of these interventions on haze. Finally, working alongside other team members you will contribute to data collection to make a first assessment of how living conditions influences exposure risk.
This interdisciplinary role will be directly guided by Professor Dominick Spracklen (providing expertise in modelling atmospheric pollution), Dr Thomas Smith (London School of Economics, providing expertise in fire emissions and particulate matter exposure) and Dr Rory Padfield and Dr Rachel Carmenta (providing expertise in exposure inequality and environmental justice), but will also benefit from wide ranging interactions will the KaLi project team.
