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 ( at HIG in 
University of Hawaii or to Dr Vaughan Phillips at University of Leeds
