Post-doctoral researcher position available:   modelling of glaciated clouds

at Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science, Lund University,



The vacancy is within the atmospheric modelling group in Lund University and
will involve development of numerical models for simulation of clouds.
Linux platforms will be used. The main development language is FORTRAN,
while processing of output is done with MATLAB as well as scripting
languages. The research group maintains its own Linux machines but also uses
other HPC facilities, such as those offered by LUNARC (www.lunarc.lu.se
<http://www.lunarc.lu.se> ). The research group of Dr Phillips at Lund
University has a strong track record in creating new cloud models and
applying them to tackle problems related to severe weather, cloud
glaciation, lightning and mechanisms for aerosol effects on cold clouds. 


The researcher will study the microphysics of glaciated clouds with a
high-resolution model.  These questions will be addressed: (1) What is the
balance between the two precipitation mechanisms for ice and liquid phase in
a given cloud? (2) How is the balance dependent on the major environmental
factors (e.g. those controlling cloud basin temperature)? (3) How does the
balance between precipitation mechanisms affect the intensity of charge
separation and lightning frequency in storm?  Such issues will be addressed
using numerical models.

The position will be at the Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystem
Science at Lund University and will be for a period of at least 6 months in


Some of the requirements for the position are that applicants must have:-  a
PhD degree in meteorology and a bachelor's degree in physics or equivalent
field and experience of FORTRAN in UNIX environment. It is desirable to have
documented knowledge from their university education in mathematics,
especially differential equations, numerical methods and/or computer
programming and physical meteorology (e.g. cloud physics).


Full details for the application are given at
https://lu.mynetworkglobal.com/en/what:job/jobID:232610/.  For more
information, contact Dr Phillips at Vaughan.Phillips at nateko.lu.se

The deadline for online applications is 31 December 2018.
