The British Antarctic Survey, Cambridge, UK is seeking applications for a PhD studenship on Future stratospheric ozone changes and associated climate impacts through its Cambridge Earth System Science Doctoral Training Partnership, starting in autumn 2018.

Successful applicants will work with Dr Andrew Orr on producing realistic projections of the recovery of the Antarctic ozone hole, and associated changes to the Southern Hemisphere atmospheric circulation and climate, by including the effects of mountain waves on Polar Stratospheric Cloud formation in a chemistry-climate model. The impacts on the Arctic climate will also be examined. The project will involve considerable interaction with Cambridge University, as well as international collaboration with scientists at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and Julich Research Centre, Germany.
