*Post-doctoral Research Associate in High-Resolution Atmospheric Modelling*
The atmospheric process group within the Department of Geography at the
University of Cambridge is looking for a Post-doctoral Research
Associate to work on high-resolution (LES) simulations of atmospheric
processes. A new multi-scale atmospheric modelling framework will be
used in two applications: the simulation of extreme precipitation events
in coastal areas and the study of atmospheric pollution in an urban
context. The influence of climate change and limits of predictability
will be assessed. In addition, existing physical parameterisations such
as cloud microphysics, radiation, surface fluxes and turbulent mixing
will be further developed within the multi-scale atmospheric modelling
The post is part of two projects: the European Consortium PEARL
http://www.pearl-fp7.eu - Preparing for Extreme And Rare events in
coastal regions - and the UK consortium MAGIC http://www.magic-air.uk -
Managing Air for Green Inner Cities. The main goal of PEARL is to
develop adaptive risk management measures and strategies for coastal
communities against extreme hydro-meteorological events. MAGIC aims to
develop a new modelling capability and decision support system to reduce
air pollution and temperatures in cities.
Applicants should have a doctorate in atmospheric physics or a related
field and ideally a strong background in high-resolution modelling of
atmospheric processes. Proficiency in computer programming (e.g.
FORTRAN) and model development is expected. Experience with cloud
aerosol microphysical and surface flux parameterisations or atmospheric
chemistry is advantageous.
Informal inquiries should be directed to Dr Michael Herzog by email,
mh526 at cam.ac.uk <mailto:mh526 at cam.ac.uk>.
Fixed term: The funds for this post are available for 30 months in the
Salary range: £28,982-£37,768 depending on experience.
Closing date: 12 June 2016.
