PhD (DPhil) Project at University of Oxford

We are looking for excellent applicants for a PhD (DPhil) studentship on "Investigating Aerosol Effects on Convective Clouds and Climate Using Time-Resolved Remote Sensing"  in the Climate Processes Group within the sub-Department of Atmospheric, Oceanic and Planetary Physics of the Department of Physics at the University of Oxford. Funded by a grant of the European Research Council (ACCLAIM), the studentship will start in autumn 2012. 

In the ACCLAIM project we will consistently combine global models, cloud resolving models and remote sensing data to advance our understanding on the physical processes underlying such observed relationships. Closely tied with the other research strands in ACCLAIM, this PhD (DPhil) project will develop novel constraints on aerosol-convection interactions and their representation in models based on resolved remote sensing from geo-stationary satellites, such as MSG, and ground based instruments, such as radar and lidar.

This PhD (DPhil) project is expected to involve an active co-operation with the UK aerosol-cloud community, the UK MetOffice as well as international partners, such as the German Space Agency (DLR)  / University of Munich.

Please see our Graduate Admissions Webpage for more details. Graduate application deadlines at the University of Oxford are streamed but we strongly recommend to apply for the 20 January deadline.  Please direct informal enquiries to Philip Stier.
