TWO PhD positions in aerosols, clouds and climate



The CLOUD-MOTION Marie-Curie Network

Positions are open to international applicants (please check job links below for eligibility)


The University of Leeds is recruiting two Early-stage researchers (PhD students) in the framework of the CLOUD-MOTION Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network. The Early-stage researcher (ESR) will be employed for a period of 36 months at the University of Leeds, UK, and will be part of a network of 15 PhD students enrolled in a European network of ten academic and private institutions.

The overall aim of CLOUD-MOTION is to investigate how new aerosol and ice particles form in the atmosphere and how they affect Earth’s climate. These atmospheric processes are the source of some of the largest uncertainties in climate models. The major research activity of the network will be three sets of joint experiments carried out at the CLOUD aerosol chamber at CERN to which all ESRs contribute. At the CLOUD chamber, nucleation experiments are performed at an unprecedented level of precision and completeness using highly innovative instrumentation. The research programme at the University of Leeds focuses on atmospheric modelling to investigate climate impacts.

The Institute for Climate and Atmospheric Science at the University of Leeds is one of the world’s leading institutes in this field of research, with 35 faculty and over one-hundred PhD students and postdoctoral researchers. The CLOUD-MOTION ESR will be embedded in a vibrant research community covering all aspects of atmospheric and climate science.
