Forwarded from CLIMLIST... 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 Vallis. 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. Please contact Hugo Lambert (<email@example.com>) with informal enquiries. 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.
