 +The position is research-oriented,​ and the specific duties associated with the position are research and teaching addressing advanced data analysis and computational inverse problems methods in uncertainty quantification of sustainability of natural resources, in particular, related to atmospheric and ecosystem processes. A successful candidate should have a strong background in applying computational methods to physical phenomena. In addition, knowledge on transport phenomena and/or atmospheric aerosol processes is an advantage. The research is implemented in the Computational Physics and Inverse Problems group (http://​venda.uef.fi/​inverse/​) in close collaboration with the Aerosol Physics group (https://​www.uef.fi/​fi/​web/​aerosol).
 +
 +The currently open position will strengthen the activities of the university’s strategic research areas. Please see: http://​www.uef.fi/​en/​tutkimus/​strategiset-tutkimusalueet-2015-2020
