PhD position at the University of Alaska Fairbanks


Applicants are invited for a funded PhD position starting in fall 2011
as part of our volcanic ash modeling efforts. The project aims at
investigating the dispersion of volcanic ash in the atmosphere using the
Weather Research and Forecast Model with inline Chemistry (WRF/Chem). A
variety of volcanic eruption models are used to initialize WRF/Chem. The
models will be verified using case studies worldwide with the specific
purpose to provide improvements for the modeling basis of volcanic ash
concentration calculations. Methods will include model inter-comparison
and testing of satellite remote sensing algorithms; operational tools
are developed to support volcanic ash advisory centers.

The successful candidate will have a strong background in geophysics
with emphasis in atmospheric sciences and fluid dynamics. Excellent
programming skills are required.

Interested applicants are welcome to contact professors Martin Stuefer,
<stuefer@gi.alaska.edu>, or Peter Webley, <pwebley@gi.alaska.edu>.
