Post-doctoral research position on aerosol effects on convective clouds and climate 
Atmospheric, Oceanic and Planetary Physics, Department of Physics, University of Oxford

We are looking for a researcher in the dynamic Climate Processes Group within the Department of Physics at the University of Oxford. The post is available immediately, initially for a fixed-term period of two years with an option of a two-year extension.

This position is part of the European Research Council (ERC) funded project, Aerosol Effects on Convective Clouds and Climate (ACCLAIM), with the objective to consistently combine cloud resolving models, global models and remote sensing data to advance our understanding on the physical processes underlying aerosol-convection interactions. The funding provided by the ERC allows supporting a focused team within one research group, fostering exchange across methodologies. 

The successful applicant will guide the cloud resolving modelling activities in the group and is expected to develop original research strategies and take responsibility for the relevant model development. The results should be presented at national and international meetings as well as published in high-impact publications. This post offers the possibility to co-advise a doctoral student and potentially other teaching opportunities.

Applicants should have a doctorate in atmospheric physics or a related field and ideally a strong cloud resolving modelling background with experience in aerosol-cloud interactions. As the overall projects bridges cloud resolving modelling, remote sensing, process studies and climate modelling, this post would suit a candidate with interests beyond an already established demonstrated track record in cloud resolving modelling.

Only applications received before midday on 31 July 2012 can be considered. All applications have to be made online through the University of Oxford recruitment webpage using the vacancy ID 103374. Please ensure that references are sent in by the closing date.

Please direct informal enquiries to Dr Philip Stier (
