Post-doctoral research position on on Aerosol, Cloud & Radiation Interactions

We are looking for a Postdoctoral researcher in the dynamic Climate Processes 
Group<https://www2.physics.ox.ac.uk/research/climate-processes> within the 
sub-Department of Atmospheric, Oceanic and Planetary Physics at the University 
of Oxford. The post is available immediately for a fixed-term period of 24 
months.

This position is part of the CLouds and Aerosol Radiative Impacts and Forcing 
(CLARIFY) project focusing on aerosol-cloud interactions over the South-East 
Atlantic. CLARIFY is a major consortium programme consisting of five UK 
universities (Exeter, Oxford, Leeds, Manchester and Reading) with project 
partners from the UK Met Office, the US NASA ORACLES (ObseRvations of Aerosols 
above CLouds and their interactions) as well as the US ARM LASIC: Layered 
Atlantic Smoke Interactions with Clouds project. The CLARIFY field campaign 
with a deployment of the FAAM (www.faam.ac.uk<http://www.faam.ac.uk>) research 
aircraft will take place in August/September 2017.

The focus of the postholder in this position will be on the representation of 
aerosol-cloud interactions in the global climate model configuration of the UK 
MetOffice Unified Model, using multiple observations from the 
CLARIFY/ORACLES/LASIC campaigns, satellite remote sensing as well as 
high-resolution modelling as benchmarks. The successful applicant will work 
closely with the UK MetOffice and is expected to develop innovative evaluation 
strategies. The results should be presented at national and international 
meetings as well as published in high-impact publications. The postholder will 
have the opportunity to teach.

Applicants should have (or be close to obtaining) a doctorate in atmospheric 
physics or a related field and a strong background in clouds/aerosols. Strong 
computing skills, including the knowledge of UNIX/Linux, Python, html, or other 
high-level languages are essential. Experience with global climate models is 
preferred but not required.

Please direct enquiries to Philip Stier 
(Philip.stier@physics.ox.ac.uk<mailto:Philip.stier@physics.ox.ac.uk>).

You will be required to upload a statement of research interests, CV and 
details of two referees as part of your online application.

Only electronic applications received before 12.00 midday on 15 December 2016 
through the Oxford University recruitment 
webpage<http://www.recruit.ox.ac.uk/pls/hrisliverecruit/erq_jobspec_version_4.jobspec?p_id=126257>
 can be considered.
