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.

Please direct informal enquiries to Dr Philip Stier 
(philip.stier at physics.ox.ac.uk <mailto:philip.stier at physics.ox.ac.uk>).
