University of Leeds, UK School of Earth and Environment Institute for Climate and Atmospheric Science Research Fellow Project: Desert Storms Fixed term for 33 months, start date 1 January 2013 We seek a motivated researcher to understand and quantify boundary-layer processes over the Sahara desert that affect the uplift and transport of dust, using large-eddy simulations. The Sahara is the world's largest dust source and plays an important role in the Earth System through interactions with radiation, clouds and the biosphere. This work is integrated in the ongoing "Desert Storms" research initiative at the University of Leeds that is funded through a European Research Council Starting Grant and aims at developing parametrisations for peak-wind generation to be used in climate and dust models. You will work alongside another research fellow and 3 PhD students studying a wide range of aspects of Saharan dust at Leeds. Collaborating with others in the UK and internationally, you will specifically quantify the distribution of peak surface winds associated with the break-down of low-level jets and dust devils. You will have a PhD (or be nearing completion) in some aspect of meteorology or atmospheric science, experience with the modelling, analysis and visualisation of atmospheric datasets, good communication skills, and the ability to work effectively as part of a team. Experience with programming on a unix/linux operating system is essential. You will be expected to show demonstrable 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 Professor Peter Knippertz, tel: +44 (0)113 343 6422, email: email@example.com.
