[Met-jobs] Post-doc on Global Aerosol-Climate Interactions at University of Oxford

Date Fri, 18 Feb 2011 12:00:10 +0000

We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher in the Climate Processes Group ( within the sub-Department of Atmospheric, Oceanic and Planetary Physics (AOPP), Department of Physics, University of Oxford. The post is available immediately initially for a fixed-term period of two years.

The focus of this research will be on aerosol microphysics in complex global climate models with the aim to quantify the relative importance of structural and parametric uncertainties.

The successful applicant will guide this research activity and is expected to develop original research strategies, take responsibility for the relevant model development and run the models on local as well as supercomputing facilities. The results should be presented at national and international meetings as well as published in peer-reviewed publications. This post offers the possibility to co-advise a doctoral student and potentially other teaching opportunities.

This position is part of the National Environmental Research Council (NERC) funded research project AEROS (NE/G006148/1), with the objective to quantify the sources of uncertainty in current aerosol-climate models at the process level and separate the uncertainties due to parameters and model structures between the Universities of Oxford and Leeds with project partners at the UK Met Office and the European Monitoring and Evaluation Programme (EMEP) at the Norwegian Meteorological Institute.

Applicants should have a doctorate in atmospheric physics or a related field and ideally a strong numerical modelling background.

Please direct informal enquiries to Dr Philip Stier (
