Full-time post-doctoral position in Remote Sensing and Clouds, University of 

Term: Full-time, fixed-term until November 2018
Location:  Department of Meteorology, University of Reading, UK
Web link:  Details can be found 

We invite applications for a postdoctoral position to undertake exciting and 
innovative research in remote sensing and clouds. This post holder will work on 
world-leading, high-resolution remote sensing observations to pioneer retrieval 
methods for cloud and precipitation, to explore new approaches to understanding 
cloud-aerosol-precipitation-radiation processes, and to improve their 
representations in models.

The post holder will:

1) Contribute to the exciting on-going development of cloud/precipitation 
retrieval methods, with specific interest in exploiting the synergy between 
scanning cloud radar/lidar and shortwave/longwave radiation measurements, and 
the scientific challenges associated with Doppler information in 
cloud/precipitation retrieval.

2) Analyse and interpret cloud, precipitation, aerosol, and radiation 
observations for various Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Program sites 
and mobile facility deployments, with a focus on the Eastern North Atlantic 
site and the LASIC (Layered Atlantic Smoke Interactions with Clouds) campaigns.

3) Explore new knowledge of the 3D cloud and radiation fields and its synergy 
with high- resolution simulations to constrain cloud/precipitation physical 
processes, and improve their representations in weather and climate models

You will have:
- PhD in atmospheric science, physics or mathematics (or a closely related 
subject), expect shortly to obtain this or equivalent research experience
- Strong analytic, communication and writing skills
- Experience using remote sensing data
- Strong motivation and good willingness to perform high quality research
- Ability to carry out independent research work

Please submit your application 
  If you have any question, please contact Dr Christine Chiu
