The University of Utah invites applications for a graduate student
(MS/PhD) position in the climate research group at the Atmospheric
Sciences Department. The position is funded by the National Science
Foundation under the project “Tropospheric Influences on Stratospheric
Low-frequency Variability”. This research studies variations in the
strength of the wintertime stratospheric polar vortex over the Northern
Hemisphere. Such variations are of interest because they are related to
variations in the frequency of stratospheric sudden warmings (SSWs),
which impact weather and climate at the surface. The student will use
numerical modelling with simple and complex climate models to
investigate the physical pathways for influences of the troposphere on
the stratospheric vortex and its subsequent consequences at the surface.

The position commences in August 2016. The application deadline is
February 21st 2016, and will be extended until the position is filled.

Contact Prof. Thomas Reichler <thomas.reichler@utah.edu> for further
information.
