at the Department of Meteorology. Closing date: 2 May 2017.
At the Department of Meteorology at Stockholm University, www.misu.su.se, we conduct research and education in an international environment within four main areas: atmospheric physics, dynamical meteorology, physical oceanography and chemical meteorology. In all these areas there is a strong focus on the climate and on processes important for the climate and its development. The department employs some 65 individuals, of which about 30 are scientists and 20 PhD students. The department is part of the Bolin Centre for Climate Research, www.bbcc.su.se, that together with three other departments at the university cover research of most of the important aspects of the climate system. The department also participates in SeRC, the Swedish e-Science Research Centre, e-science.se. More information about the PhD program at MISU can be found at: www.misu.su.se/education/phd-studies.
This project is part of a large-scale collaborative effort in feature tracking funded by the Strategic Research Foundation (see here for details), and will involve close collaboration with visualisation groups at KTH and Linköping University. There will also be close links with the Swedish e-Science Research Centre, SeRC. Candidates with strong computational skills and a keen interest in atmospheric applications are particularly encouraged to apply.
In order to meet the specific entry requirements, the general syllabus for doctoral studies in the field of meteorology stipulates that at least 90 points must be in one of the subjects meteorology, oceanography, physics or chemistry, at least 15 points must be in mathematics, and an independent project work corresponding to at least 15 points must have been completed. The requirements can also be met by acquiring the corresponding knowledge in some other way, in Sweden or abroad.
Only a person who will be or has already been admitted to a third-cycle program may be appointed to a doctoral studentship. The primary assessment criteria in appointing a doctoral student should be the capacity to benefit from the training.
Admission Regulations for Doctoral Studies at Stockholm University are available at: www.su.se/rules.
