Post-doctoral research positions in Aerosol, Cloud & Precipitation Interactions 

We are looking for up to two postdoctoral researchers in the dynamic Climate Processes Group  within the sub-Department of Atmospheric, Oceanic and Planetary Physics at the University of Oxford. The posts are available immediately for a fixed-term period of 3 years.

These positions will be at the forefront of developing modelling based assessments of aerosol, cloud and precipitation interactions as part of the new European Research Council project constRaining the EffeCts of Aerosols on Precipitation (RECAP). Science and simulations will range from idealised global scale modelling to detailed CRM/LES modelling of aerosol and cloud processes on smaller scales.

The successful candidates will work closely with national and international collaborators and are expected to develop innovative modelling approaches. The results should be presented at national and international meetings as well as published in high-impact publications. The ability and drive to work collaboratively, yet independently, as part of a team is essential.

Applicants should possess, or be very close to obtaining a doctorate in physics or a related field and ideally a strong background in in atmospheric modelling. Depending on the post, additional experience with either large-scale to meso-scale atmospheric dynamics/modelling or with aerosol and cloud microphysics/cloud resolving/LES modelling would be of benefit. Candidates are expected to demonstrate an excellent understanding of atmospheric physics, a strong background in atmospheric modelling and a demonstrated drive and ability to perform novel research of international standing. The postholder will have the opportunity to teach.

Please direct enquiries about the role to Philip Stier <>.

You will be required to upload a brief statement of research interests, CV and details of two referees as part of your online application. Further particulars and the application form can be found on the Oxford University recruitment webpage:


Only electronic applications received through this form before the deadline of 12.00 midday on 22 January 2018 can be considered.
