[Met-jobs] Industry-sponsored PhD studentship to study PM2.5 over Delhi, India

I have a PhD studentship available to study the role of the transportation sector on observed variations of PM2.5 over the National Capital Territory of Delhi, India. It is funded by the Ford Motor Company.

The starting point for the project will be to use an established model that describes the chemical aging of organic aerosol, which will be linked to high-resolution atmospheric trajectories over Delhi. We will run the model using climatological environmental conditions indicative of Delhi during different seasons of the year (e.g., emissions, temperature, precipitation). We will also consider anomalous environmental conditions, e.g. heatwaves.

A more detailed description of the project is here: https://www.geos.ed.ac.uk/postgraduate/PhD/getDocument?SerialNo=1195. I am happy to discuss further project details by email.

The ideal candidate has a degree in one of the physical sciences.

The deadline for applications is Friday 26 January 2018. Details on how to apply can be found here:
