Fully funded PhD Studentship: Global Importance of Sea Ice and Snow for the Atmosphere



This studentship is part of a 5-year research project funded by the
European Research Council (ERC). In this studentship, the UK community
atmospheric chemistry-aerosol global model UKCA will be used, coupled
to an ocean and sea ice model. Based on the results of
other parts of the ERC project, the production of gases in the ocean,
snow and sea ice and their exchange with the atmosphere will be
included in UKCA in collaboration with the Met Office and U
Cambridge. The goal is to provide a global assessment of the past,
present and future roles of sea ice for the composition and chemistry
of the atmosphere in polar regions with a focus on the greenhouse
gases CO2, CH4 and O3 which act on very different
timescales. Furthermore, the role of snow photochemistry (polar and
continental) on global atmospheric composition will be quantified.

Some background knowledge of atmospheric chemistry, snow
photochemistry and/or the Arctic climate system is desirable. This
project is an exciting opportunity for a highly motivated student with
a first degree in a relevant field in physical sciences (including
atmospheric sciences, meteorology, oceanography, physics, chemistry)
and ideally a background in numerical modelling.

3.5 years of funding (stipend and fees) for UK/EU applicants;
Application deadline 15 July 2015, Start: 01 Oct 2015. Further
details and application form: http://tinyurl.com/oxr82v2

Please contact Prof Roland von Glasow (R.von-Glasow@uea.ac.uk) for
further information and informal discussions.
