PhD Research Project The Cloud-Aerosol Interaction Studied with Numerical Models The School of Earth and Environment at the University of Leeds, UK, is seeking applications for a 3-year PhD studentship. This fully-funded award (a stipend of £13,590 per year) is available immediately for a UK/EU candidate. Entry requirements/necessary background: A BSc degree in physics, engineering or a related area is required, with an MSc degree giving an advantage. Required skills: experience in using FORTRAN or C, and analysis packages such as MATLAB, is needed. Some knowledge of maths, atmospheric science and general physics is needed. Research topic: The linkage between aerosol particles and cloud properties is crucial to treat in atmospheric models when projecting future changes in climate. Continental aerosols can modify the intensity of systems of severe weather, such as hurricanes and other tropical cyclones. In this project, clouds’ dependencies on aerosol conditions of chemistry and loading will be treated in a hierarchy of cloud models and in a large-scale model. Focus will be given to influences from aerosol pollution on glaciated clouds. The aim is to represent this linkage better in the large-scale models used for climate studies. The project will benefit the community by allowing more accurate prediction of severe weather and climate change. Funding: The student will receive a stipend approximately at the level of similar funding by UK research councils (13590 GBP per year) and will not pay any tuition fees. More information and how to apply is given at: http://www.see.leeds.ac.uk/admissions-and-study/research-degrees/icas/phillips/ Enquiries about the PhD opening may be made to Dr V. Phillips at University of Leeds (firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com>; Tel: +44 (0)113 343 6429).
