Subject: [Met-jobs] Post-Doctoral Research Assistant position at the University 
of Reading

Post-Doctoral Research Assistant position at the Department of Meteorology of 
the University of Reading (UK)

Applications are invited for a 2-year postdoctoral position to investigate 
aerosol radiative forcing of the Earth system. The aim of this work is to 
provide support for model-based quantifications of aerosol radiative forcing by 
obtaining statistics of natural aerosol distributions and anthropogenic 
perturbations. The work combines analysis of aerosol remote sensing products 
with global climate modelling: the exact balance between the two activities 
will be determined by your skills and interests.

The context for the project is the change in our view of the natural and 
pre-industrial atmosphere, which has moved to an atmosphere where aerosols are 
more abundant than previously thought. This change has two consequences. First, 
anthropogenic perturbations may not be as large and frequent as previously 
considered. Second, the natural atmosphere becomes a large source of 
uncertainty when quantifying aerosol radiative forcing. Using a variety of 
aerosol and cloud remote sensing products, you will characterise aerosol 
properties in the natural and perturbed atmosphere to quantify how often the 
natural aerosol background is perturbed, and how strongly. You will then use a 
state-of-the-art numerical model of the global Earth System to reproduce the 
observed statistics, and quantify the corresponding aerosol radiative forcing.
