Ph.D. position in Meteorology at Uppsala University, Sweden (focussing
on the atmospheric boundary layer and sound propagation in cold climates)
Starting date 2014-10-01 or according to agreement.

Project description: The Arctic and other cold regions have a
significant influence on the global climate. Despite this importance
there are still many uncertainties regarding how meteorological
processes work in these areas. Often, the atmospheric boundary layer in
cold regions differs from warmer zones, which has implications for sound
propagation (for example from wind turbines).

The project will focus on the physical processes in the atmospheric
boundary layer in cold climates and the impact on sound propagation. The
project will be mainly experimental, including field work, but numerical
simulations may also be included.

Requirements of the applicants: The applicant shall have a university
science degree including meteorology/atmospheric physics. Other
technical or science degrees together with experience in meteorology may
also be considered. The successful candidate shall have a solid base in
mathematics, physics, and basic computer skills. Previous experience of
meteorological field work, as well as programming and numerical methods
is considered a merit. The applicant must be prepared to conduct field
work in cold and demanding climates.

For further information about the position, please contact Anna Sjöblom,
tel. +46 18 471 71 80, e-mail <>, or Conny Larsson,
