*Post-doctoral research positions in Aerosol, Cloud, Climate
Interactions, University of Oxford*
We are looking for up to three postdoctoral researchers in the dynamic
Climate Processes Group
<https://www2.physics.ox.ac.uk/research/climate-processes> within the
sub-Department of Atmospheric, Oceanic and Planetary Physics at the
University of Oxford. The posts is available immediately for a
fixed-term period of 3 years.
These projects will be at the forefront of modelling based assessments
of aerosol, cloud climate interactions. One position, part of the NERC
Aerosol-Cloud Uncertainty REduction project (A-CURE) will combine
innovative perturbed physics ensembles with comprehensive observations
to reduce uncertainty in aerosol radiative effects. Two positions are
available as part of the new European Research Council project
constRaining the EffeCts of Aerosols on Precipitation (RECAP) ranging
from idealised to realistic global scale modelling to detailed CRM/LES
modelling of aerosol and cloud processes on smaller scales.
The successful candidates will work closely with national and
international collaborators and are expected to develop innovative
modelling approaches. You will develop original research and analysis
strategies. Results should be presented at national and international
meetings as well as published in high-impact publications.
Applicants should possess, or be very close to obtaining a doctorate in
physics or a related field and ideally a strong background in
in atmospheric modelling. Depending on the post, additional experience
in atmospheric dynamics, small scale processes or the use of
remote sensing and in-situ observations of aerosol and cloud parameters
is of benefit.
Candidates are expected to demonstrate an excellent understanding of
atmospheric physics, a strong background in atmospheric modelling and a
demonstrated drive and ability to perform novel research of
international standing. The post-holders will have the opportunity to teach.
Please direct enquiries about the role to Philip Stier
(philip.stier at physics.ox.ac.uk <mailto:philip.stier at physics.ox.ac.uk>).
You will be required to upload a brief statement of research interests,
CV and details of two referees as part of your online application.
Further particulars and the application form can be found on the Oxford
University recruitment webpage
Only electronic applications received through this form before the
*deadline of 12.00 midday on 17 July 2017* can be considered.
