*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 
first instance.
Salary range: £28,982-£37,768 depending on experience.
Closing date: 12 June 2016.
