*Research Fellow in Aerosol-Cloud Interaction as part of the CLARIFY 

*University of Leeds, Faculty of Environment, School of Earth and 
Environment, *

*Institute for Climate and Atmospheric Science*

*Fixed term for **3 years*

*Job sharing arrangements can be considered*

**This research position is part of the NERC collaborative Project 
CLARIFY (CLoud-Aerosol-Radiation Interactions and Forcing). CLARIFY 
involves the universities of Exeter, Leeds, Manchester, Reading, Oxford 
and the Met Office. The overall objective of CLARIFY is to use the 
natural laboratory of the southeast Atlantic to improve our 
understanding of aerosol-radiation and aerosol-cloud interaction 
processes and their impacts on local, regional and global weather and 
climate. CLARIFY involves an intensive airborne field campaign in 2016 
with supporting surface and satellite measurements over the southeast 
Atlantic. The measurements will be used to develop improved models at 
different spatial scales from the cloud scale to the global scale that 
couple aerosols, clouds and radiation.

The research fellow post in Leeds focuses on modelling aerosol-cloud 
interactions. The research will exploit a new version of the Met Office 
Unified Model that couples aerosol and cloud microphysics embedded at 
regional scales with resolutions of <1 km within the global model. The 
model will be used, together with new measurements, to understand how 
climatically important shallow clouds respond to changes in aerosols, 
including biomass burning.

The Leeds research project is led by Professor Ken Carslaw, Professor 
Paul Field and Professor Alan Blyth. The successful candidate will have 
the opportunity to work in close cooperation with scientists at the Met 
Office, supported by Professor Field who has a joint position between 
the University of Leeds and the Met Office.


You will have a PhD (or be close to obtaining) and experience in a 
relevant area of atmospheric modelling. Experience of developing and 
running complex numerical models is also essential.  You will be able to 
demonstrate commitment to publication of original results at an 
international level.


The University of Leeds’ commitment to women in science has been 
recognised with a national accolade. The University has received the 
Athena Swan Bronze Award in recognition of our success in recruiting, 
retaining and promoting women in Science, Engineering and Technology (SET).
