FORWARDED from MET-JOBS:*
Post-doctoral research position on aerosol effects on convective clouds
and climate *
Atmospheric, Oceanic and Planetary Physics, Department of
Physics, University of Oxford
We are looking for a researcher in the dynamic Climate Processes Group
<http://www2.physics.ox.ac.uk/research/climate-processes> within the
Department of Physics at the University of Oxford. The post is available
immediately for a fixed-term period of up to 3½ years.
This position is part of the European Research Council funded project,
Aerosol Effects on Convective Clouds and Climate (ACCLAIM), with the
objective to consistently combine global models, remote sensing and
cloud resolving models to advance our understanding on the physical
processes underlying aerosol-convection interactions. The funding
provided by the ERC allows supporting a focused team within one research
group, fostering exchange across methodologies.
The successful applicant will guide the convection parameterisation
development in the group and is expected to develop original research
strategies. The results should be presented at national and
international meetings as well as published in high-impact publications.
This post offers the possibility to co-advise a doctoral student and
potentially other teaching opportunities.
Applicants should have a doctorate in atmospheric physics or a related
field and ideally a strong background in convective processes/fluid
dynamics, experience in global modelling and potentially aerosol-cloud
interactions. As the overall projects bridges global climate models,
cloud resolving modelling, remote sensing and process studies this post
would suit a candidate with interests beyond an already established
demonstrated track record in convection.
Only applications received by 12.00 midday on Monday 15 April 2013 can
be considered. You will be required to upload a supporting statement, CV
and supply names and addresses of two referees as part of your online
application through the University of Oxford Recruitment Webpage
In addition, candidates should arrange for the letters of reference to
be sent in by the closing date.
