The British Antarctic Survey, Cambridge, UK is seeking applications for a PhD studenship on SOCRATES: Understanding processes that control Southern Ocean cloud through the ARIES Doctoral Training Partnership, starting in autumn 2019.

Successful applicants will work on analysing observations from SOCRATES to improve our understanding of the processes that influence clouds over the Southern Ocean, as well as the relationships between cloud microphysics and the surface radiation budget. The observations are from a variety of instruments on-board aircraft, ships and satellites. The observations will be used to explore the deficiencies in the representation of cloud processes in the state-of-the-art UK Met Office climate model, as well as develop appropriate methods to overcome these deficiencies.

Further details of the project are available here: <>
