SPARC (Stratospheric Processes and Their Role in Climate) is one of the four core projects of the WCRP (World Climate Research Programme). WCRP aims to improve the predictability of climate, particularly under the influence of the effects of anthropogenic climate change by facilitating international research collaboration to provide society-relevant science. SPARC was initiated more than 20 years ago and ever since it has stimulated strong scientific collaboration that has lead to excellent, bottom-up driven international research providing deliverables with significant added scientific value. SPARC research is strongly focused on the stratosphere and outcomes of many of the SPARC activities have served as the basis for the regular WMO/UNEP  Assessments of Ozone Depletion, as well as the IPCC  Assessments of Climate Change. Examples of recent SPARC achievements include the coordination of chemistry-climate modelling and the development of metrics for the evaluation and intercomparison of models, as well as several activities focused on the critical assessment of key long-term observations. A recent review of the WCRP by its governing bodies led to a structural revision, which aims at making the core projects work closer with the new climate services. Through this revision, SPARC’s mandate has been extended to include tropospheric processes influenced by the stratosphere, implying that in future SPARC will include more tropospheric focus in its research activities. SPARC is the only WCRP core project with a strong emphasis on chemistry, and therefore an important SPARC activity is the coordination of work using chemistry-climate models that also include the troposphere. This activity is currently underway as a common effort with IGAC  of the IGBP . The SPARC International Project Office (IPO) is essential to the programmatic and operational functioning of SPARC’s scientific activities. It promotes SPARC’s work by (i) publishing SPARC Newsletters that appear twice a year, (ii) producing all SPARC assessment reports, (iii) managing the SPARC website and coordinating outreach and communication activities, and (iv) by organising or assisting with the arrangement of many important international workshops and meetings. It achieves these tasks by keeping itself up-to-date with SPARC science. The SPARC Office is presently located at ETH Zürich in Switzerland, supported by ETH Zürich, MeteoSwiss, FOEN (Federal Office for the Environment) and the WCRP. This funding covers only the essential, “house keeping” activities and is insufficient to continue the provision of “added-value” science that the SPARC Office is expected to provide. To this end, the SNF has supported the SPARC Office through an infrastructure project since February 2012 with a full postdoctoral position for a “Project Scientist”. Already during her first year, the Project Scientist (Dr. Fiona Tummon) was able to make substantial contributions to several of SPARC’s scientific activities, which will result in a number of peer-reviewed first- and co-author publications. With this present application we ask for a continuation of the SNF postdoctoral position for two years. This postdoc will continue with her own SPARC-related research, advance SPARC research activities, take the lead in the production and editing of the SPARC newsletters, scientific reports and review papers, and contribute to the organisation of SPARC’s scientific meetings.
