Fully funded PhD Studentship: Modelling Arctic atmospheric chemistry

This project will use the established regional 3D model WRF-Chem
in its polar configuration. Based on other work a simplified snow
photochemistry module will be implemented in WRF-Chem. This new
configuration will be used to investigate polar atmospheric chemistry,
especially halogen chemistry, and the relevance of snow and sea ice
processes for it. The model results will be compared to field data
from intensive field campaigns, buoys and satellite data.

This position is part of a 5-year research project funded by the
European Research Council (ERC) with the overriding aim to improve our
understanding of the links between the Arctic atmosphere, sea ice and
snow. This project will be conducted in the Centre for Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences (COAS) at the School of Environmental Sciences, University of East Anglia, Norwich, UK.

The successful candidate will have a degree in natural sciences or a
related field and ideally experience with numerical modelling
including 3D modelling.

3.5 years of funding (stipend and fees) for UK/EU applicants;
Application deadline 25 Jan 2015, Start: 01 April 2015.  Further
details and application form:
