Ph.D. student position in Atmospheric Physics at Stockholm University 

From: Jorg Gumbel <gumbel at misu.su.se>


Dear colleagues,

the Department of Meteorology (MISU) at Stockholm University, Sweden,
invites applicants for a fully funded Ph.D. student position in Atmospheric
Physics. Application deadline is November 20, 2013. Please find complete
information and instructions under http://www.misu.su.se/about-us/vacancies.


This position focuses on a Rayleigh/Mie/Raman lidar that our Atmospheric
Physics group operates at the Esrange Space Center in Northern Sweden.
Research with the lidar facility concerns atmospheric dynamics, clouds and
aerosols from the upper troposphere to the mesosphere. This Ph.D. project
aims at using the lidar for studies within these research areas. This also
includes work on maintaining and developing the lidar. Of particular
interest is scientific collaboration with upcoming international projects
addressing e.g. mountain wave dynamics, troposphere/stratosphere exchange or
polar stratospheric clouds. 


At the Department of Meteorology at Stockholm University (www.misu.su.se),
research and education is conducted in an international environment. The
four main research areas are atmospheric physics, dynamic meteorology,
physical oceanography and chemical meteorology. Around 75 people are working
at the department, of which around 25 are teachers and scientists and 30 are
Ph.D. students. Research in Atmospheric Physics at the department concerns
studies of the stratosphere, mesosphere and lower thermosphere, the coupling
between these, as well as the coupling to the climate system as a whole.
These activities build on projects involving satellites, sounding rockets
and lidar, as well as related theoretical and modeling studies. 


For further information contact Jorg Gumbel (gumbel at misu.su.se).
