[Met-jobs] PhD scholarships in Cloud Microphysical Studies - Manchester, UK

From Jonathan Crosier <>
Date Wed, 5 Oct 2016 15:53:43 +0100

The Centre for Atmospheric Science (CAS) at the University of Manchester, UK, has two PhD projects in the area of cloud microphysics. CAS has world leading aerosol and cloud chamber facilities and instrumentation, and are routine users of the world leading research aircraft and radar facilities. Projects are due to start in September 2017, but start dates may alter depending on the funding stream. Details of the two positions can be found below:

Project 1: Laboratory studies of cloud microphysical processes using a state of the art particle generation system

Project 2: Remote sensing of clouds: Developing and validating retrievals using airborne observations.

Funding Criteria:

Our studentships are funded by NERC and are available to UK nationals and other EU nationals that have resided in the UK for three years prior to commencing the studentship. If you meet this criteria, funding will be provided for tuition fees and stipend. Students from EU countries who do not meet the residency requirements may still be eligible for a fees-only award. Overseas students may be able to join the programme but will need to have arranged funding from other sources.

For exceptional oversees candidates, funding can be sought from the highly competitive Presidents Doctoral Scholar Award, and Faculty Scholarship Scheme:
