Research Fellow in Cloud and Climate Uncertainty Modelling University of Leeds, School of Earth and Environment Institute for Climate and Atmospheric Science Fixed term for 2 years This post is part of a UK consortium funded by the Natural Environment Research Council to reduce the uncertainty in estimates of radiative forcing and climate feedbacks relating to aerosol and cloud processes. The Leeds contribution to the project will be to use new applications of uncertainty modelling to quantify the key uncertainties in cloud microphysical processes and climate effects. You will run cloud-resolving models and global climate models simulating the interaction of aerosols and clouds. New approaches using statistical emulators will be used to understand how uncertainties in numerous cloud processes impact the cloud properties of relevance to climate. You will closely collaborate with other project scientists carrying out laboratory and modelling studies. The ACID-PRUF consortium involves nine UK universities (Manchester, Leeds, Bristol, Exeter, York, Leicester, Hertfordshire, Cambridge and Oxford) and the Met Office and brings together laboratory studies and modelling of clouds and climate processes on all scales. Other scientists involved in the project at Leeds are Prof Alan Blyth, Dr Steven Dobbie and Dr Ben Murray. You will have a PhD and expertise either in a relevant area of atmospheric modelling or in uncertainty quantification in complex models. You will be able to demonstrate commitment to publication of original results at an international level. University Grade 7 (£30,122 - 35,938 p.a.) Informal enquiries may be made to Prof Ken Carslaw, tel +44 (0)113 343 1597, email email@example.com<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> Closing Date: 1 September 2012 For further details and to download an application form please … Summary of Job Description · Application of cloud-resolving and global models to simulate the interaction of aerosols with clouds and quantify the radiative forcing · The design of ensembles of model experiments to enable the uncertainty in cloud radiative properties and its sources to be quantified · Application of statistical techniques to quantify the uncertainty in cloud radiative properties based on model results · Collaboration with project partners to help define model experiments and interpret the results and their relevance to the project’s aims · Publication of the results in high quality, peer reviewed journals or other appropriate outlets and presentation of results at national and international meetings Aerosol and Cloud Research at Leeds ICAS has an extensive programme of research in global aerosol and aerosol-climate modelling, led by Prof Ken Carslaw (www.see.leeds.ac.uk/aerosol<http://www.see.leeds.ac.uk/aerosol>). The group has developed the Global Model of Aerosol Processes (GLOMAP) and the aerosol module of the UK climate model (UKCA, http://www.ukca.ac.uk). The group currently has five postdoctoral researchers and six students working on a wide range of aerosol-climate problems, including aerosol nucleation, global CCN, cloud microphysics, and volcanic aerosol, etc. Two projects are applying statistical techniques to quantify the uncertainty in these complex aerosol models.
