Postdoctoral Research Officer - Atmospheric Dynamics
Centre for Space, Atmospheric & Oceanic Science
University of Bath, UK
Salary:   Starting from £30,424, rising to £36,298
Closing Date:  October 14, 2013


Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Officer position  
in the atmospheric dynamics group of Professor Nick Mitchell based in  
the Centre for Space, Atmospheric & Oceanic Science at the University  
of Bath, UK. The post is funded by the Natural Environment Research  
Council (NERC). It is a fixed-term three-year contract and is  
available from November 1, 2013.

The research will investigate the role of the isolated island of South  
Georgia in the South Atlantic as an intense source of gravity waves as  
part of the "SG-WEX: South Georgia Wave Experiment" project. It will  
study how these gravity waves propagate from the troposphere into the  
stratosphere and mesosphere. Data from radiosondes, from satellite  
radio-occultation measurements (COSMIC) and from a VHF meteor radar  
will be used to determine wave fluxes and their variability. The  
Research Officer will join a fieldwork team from Bath and The British  
Antarctic Survey to deploy the VHF meteor radar on South Georgia and  
will carry out two radiosondes campaigns from the island.

Applicants should hold, or expect to shortly receive, a PhD in  
physics, meteorology, engineering or mathematics. Experience of  
atmospheric dynamics would be an advantage. Research skills in data  
analysis are essential. The work of the Centre is strongly  
international and the Research Officer will be expected to take part  
in international collaborations and to present their work at  
international meetings.
