Currently over 50% of world’s population lives in urban areas and it is therefore vital to understand and model the processes affecting the urban climate and human well being. The purpose of the project is to improve the description of high latitude cities in atmospheric models, and to understand how urban planning and climate affect the surface energy and water balances in these areas. The PhD involves analysis of observational data from the SMEAR III station (Station for Measuring Ecosystem-Atmosphere relations, http://www.atm.helsinki.fi/SMEAR/) in Helsinki, and development of the Surface Urban Energy and Water balance scheme (SUEWS) to simulate cities located at high latitudes and/or in cold climates. PhD student is expected to finish her/his doctoral studies during the project. In the recruit process, special weight will be given to experience in analyzing measurement data and experience in programming (e.g., Fortran, C, Matlab, Python).
The Division of Atmosphere Sciences at the University of Helsinki (http://www.physics.helsinki.fi/tutkimus/atm/english/) is one the world’s leading groups in the research of atmospheric sciences extending from aerosol particle nucleation to turbulent exchange and atmospheric modeling. The division has also a long experience in urban meteorology and particularly in the surface-atmosphere exchange studies.
The applicant should have a Master degree in atmospheric or climate sciences, physics, geophysics, or a closely related discipline. The applicant should be fluent in English and with good communication skills. Applicants should include a CV and the names of two academic referees. The applications should be sent to leena.jarvi(at)helsinki.fi and the deadline is 4 December 2013.
