PhD Studentship in Mathematics: Understanding how the interaction
between atmospheric radiation and dynamics leads to regional climate
change Ref: 1995

We invite applications for a PhD studentship at the University of Exeter
on how the interaction between atmospheric radiation, fluid dynamics and
surface properties leads to changes in regional climate. The PhD
studentship will be supervised by Dr Hugo Lambert and Professor Geoff

Simulations will be run using a flexible climate model that allows the
easy testing of a wide range of hypotheses and plausible representations
of uncertain model processes. The work will be largely idealized, but
the eventual aim is to understand past and 21st century regional climate
change on the real Earth. A range of approaches are possible depending
on the student’s interests and how the project develops. One initial
avenue for research is to investigate how newly observed patterns of
radiative feedbacks caused by climate change drive changes in
atmospheric circulation that produce impacts on surface climate. Another
avenue is to investigate how the representation of uncertain processes
in climate models – particularly convection – impacts on the generation
of radiative feedbacks themselves.

Application information:

Applicants should have, or expect to achieve, at least a 2:1 Honours
degree, or equivalent, in Mathematics, Physics or Environmental
Sciences. Experience in software programming is desirable but not essential.

Application deadline: 10th June 2016.
Value: 3.5-year studentship: Tuition fees (UK/EU) and an annual stipend
equivalent to current Research Council rates.
Starting date: The studentship can start in September 2016 or January
2017 depending on the applicants availability.
