at the Department of Meteorolgy. Closing date: 2 May 2017.
At the Department of Meteorology at Stockholm University (MISU), www.misu.su.se, we conduct research and education in an international environment within four main areas: Atmospheric physics, Dynamic 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, 20 PhD students and 15 in the administration and the technical support. The department is part of the Bolin Centre for Climate Research, www.bolin.su.se, and together with three other departments at the university cover research of most of the important aspects of the climate system. For more information about PhD studies at MISU:www.misu.su.se/research/phd-studies.
This project is a collaboration with the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (SMHI), and the successful applicant will have the opportunity to visit and do some part of the work at the SMHI research department. He/she will also be able to work within the interdisciplinary project "Arctic Climate Across Scales (ACAS)", recently funded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation.
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.
