PhD position in chemistry-climate modeling

The group of the Institute for Atmospheric and Climate Science, ETH,
Zurich is offering a PhD position within the project “Future and past
solar influence on the terrestrial climate (FUPSOL)” funded by the
Swiss National Science Foundation. The main goal of this project is to
study the response of the climate and ozone layer to the long-term
variability of the solar activity. The PhD student will apply a
state-of-the-art Atmosphere-Ocean-Climate-Chemistry Model to simulate
the climate and ozone layer behavior, analyze the results, and compare
them with observations.

The candidate should have a Master or Diploma degree in physics,
mathematics, environmental or earth sciences or engineering. The
candidate should further have deep interest in the modeling of physical
or chemical processes in the atmosphere at all scales or some experience
in numerical climate and chemistry modeling. Good knowledge of
mathematical fundamentals, FORTRAN-95, Unix Shell-scripting, IDL or
other visualization packages will be required.Fluency in English will be
essential.

The position should be filled by January 2013. The PhD project duration
is 3 years. The doctorate will be obtained from the Swiss Federal
Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zürich. The title of the doctorate will
be Dr. sc. ETH.

Please send your application including a statement of interest,
transcripts, CV, publication list, and contact information of at least
two referees (preferably as a single pdf-file) to Petra Forney by email
(petra.forney@env.ethz.ch <mailto:petra.forney@env.ethz.ch>). For
informal enquiries concerning this position, please, contact Prof.
