Post-doctoral research position on the radiative effects of biomass-burning aerosols
Department of Meteorology, University of Reading, UK

We are looking for a post-doctoral researcher in the Aerosol group of the Department of Meteorology at the University of Reading. The post is available immediately for a fixed-term period of 3 years.

This position is part of the CLARIFY-2016 (CLouds and Aerosol Radiative Impacts and Forcing: Year 2016) project, which is funded by the UK Natural Environment Research Council. CLARIFY-2016 involves a field campaign with the UK Facility for Airborne Atmospheric Measurements in Namibia in late summer 2016 (www.faam.ac.uk/index.php/current-future-campaigns/530-clarify), and global and
high-resolution numerical modelling activities. CLARIFY-2016 is a major consortium programme consisting of 5 UK universities (Exeter, Leeds, Manchester, Oxford, and Reading) with project partners from the UK Met Office, European universities and research institutes.

The successful applicant will assess, using large-eddy modelling, the relative magnitude of rapid adjustments to aerosol-radiation interactions (also called semi-direct effects). This modelling work will be supported by newly-acquired aircraft measurements of aerosol, cloud, temperature, humidity and radiation profiles.

Applicants should have a doctorate in atmospheric physics or a related field including meteorology and climate science, and experience of numerical modelling of radiative transfer, aerosol or cloud processes. Familiarity with large-eddy modelling is desirable, but not essential.

The complete job description is available at

Deadline for application is Sunday 31 January 2016. Informal enquiries are
welcome: please email Dr Nicolas Bellouin (n.bellouin@reading.ac.uk) or
Prof Ellie Highwood (e.j.highwood@reading.ac.uk).
