Postdoctoral Research Officer - Atmospheric Dynamics Centre for Space, Atmospheric & Oceanic Science University of Bath, UK Salary: Starting from £30,424, rising to £36,298 Closing Date: October 14, 2013 SG-WEX: THE SOUTH GEORGIA WAVE EXPERIMENT Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Officer position in the atmospheric dynamics group of Professor Nicholas Mitchell based in the Centre for Space, Atmospheric & Oceanic Science at the University of Bath, UK. The post is funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC). It is a fixed-term three-year contract and is available from November 1, 2013. The research will investigate the role of the isolated island of South Georgia in the South Atlantic as an intense source of gravity waves as part of the ?SG-WEX: South Georgia Wave Experiment? project. It will study how these gravity waves propagate from the troposphere into the stratosphere and mesosphere. Data from radiosondes, from satellite radio-occultation measurements (COSMIC) and from a VHF meteor radar will be used to determine wave fluxes and their variability. The Research Officer will join a fieldwork team from Bath and The British Antarctic Survey to deploy the VHF meteor radar on South Georgia and will carry out two radiosondes campaigns from the island. Applicants should hold, or expect to shortly receive, a PhD in physics, meteorology, engineering or mathematics. Experience of atmospheric dynamics would be an advantage. Research skills in data analysis are essential. The work of the Centre is strongly international and the Research Officer will be expected to take part in international collaborations and to present their work at international meetings.
