We invite applications for a post-doctoral research associate at the Hawaiian Institute of Geophysics (HIG) in the University of Hawaii at Manoa, USA. The project is being organised jointly with the School of Earth and Environment at University of Leeds, UK. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to study lightning’s environmental dependencies with a state-of-the-art model of the aerosol-cloud interaction. The main goal of the project is to understand the influence from diverse environmental factors, such as instability and aerosol loadings, on the lightning of a cumulonimbus cloud. The appointment will be for one year, if performance is adequate. The position may be extended for longer, depending on availability of funds and on performance. Scientists with a strong background in atmospheric modeling and in either mesoscale meteorology or cloud physics are encouraged to apply. Candidates must have a PhD in meteorology or a related field (e.g. physics, atmospheric science) with modeling and programming experience. Applicants may have any nationality. The stipend will be between $55,000 and $60,000 for the year, depending on experience. Enquiries may be made to Dr Barry Lienert (email@example.com) at HIG in University of Hawaii or to Dr Vaughan Phillips at University of Leeds (firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com>). To apply, please send a curriculum vitae and a letter of interest to: Dr Vaughan Phillips, Lecturer, School of Earth and Environment, University of Leeds, Woodhouse Lane, Leeds LS2 9JT, United Kingdom (email: firstname.lastname@example.org; Tel: +44 (0)113 343 6429). Specify contact details of 3 referees who can provide letters of support for the application. Evaluation of candidates will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.
