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 for a fixed-term period of up to 3½ years.

This position is part of the European Research Council funded project, Aerosol Effects on Convective Clouds and Climate (ACCLAIM), with the objective to consistently combine global models, remote sensing and cloud resolving models 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 convection parameterisation development in the group and is expected to develop original research strategies. 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 background in convective processes/fluid dynamics, experience in global modelling and potentially aerosol-cloud interactions. As the overall projects bridges global climate models, cloud resolving modelling, remote sensing and process studies this post would suit a candidate with interests beyond an already established demonstrated track record in convection.

Only applications received by 12.00 midday on Monday 15 April 2013 can be considered. You will be required to upload a supporting statement, CV and supply names and addresses of two referees as part of your online application through the University of Oxford Recruitment Webpage

In addition, candidates should arrange for the letters of reference to be sent in by the closing date.

Please direct informal enquiries to Dr Philip Stier (
