[Met-jobs] PhD/post-doc positions in cloud satellite observations/radiative transfer

There are now several open positions at the Earth and Space Sciences department, Chalmers University of Technology (Gothenburg, Sweden). The positions are either on PhD student or post doc level and will be placed in the Global environment measurements and modelling group.

A number of research areas are possible for these positions. However, at least one position will be placed having microwave measurement of ice hydrometeors (cloud ice and and falling snow) in mind. The group's present activities in the field can be summarized as preparations for the Ice Cloud Imager (ICI) instrument series, that will be part of Metop Second Generation. ICI will be the first operational instrument to make use of sub-millimeter wavelengths. The efforts include to help in the analysis of data from the ISMAR airborne instrument and to develop a database of microwave single scattering properties of ice particles. Development of retrievals based on existing microwave data is also planned. A core element of the preparations is the Atmospheric Radiative Transfer System (ARTS), and candidates with a special interest/experience of radiative transfer (especially scattering solvers) will also be considered.

PhD student positions are fully funded at a competitive level.
