[Met-jobs] PhD position on atmospheric lee waves at University of Reading - deadline 1 February

From Miguel Teixeira <>
To "" <>
Date Sat, 26 Jan 2019 11:12:44 +0000

Fully funded PhD position (for UK or EU resident students) at the University of 
Reading within the NERC SCENARIO Doctoral Training Programme on: 

"Trapped lee waves as a source of low-level drag on the atmosphere" 

lead-supervised by Miguel Teixeira (University of Reading), co-supervisors: 
Suzanne Gray (University of Reading), and Annelize van Niekerk and Simon Vosper 
(UK Met Office).

The project entails using a combination of high-resolution numerical modelling, 
theory and field data to improve the representation of gravity wave drag in 
weather and climate models, used to predict climate change, where that 
representation is a very important source of uncertainty.

This project will provide training for skills in numerical and mathematical 
modelling and data analysis. It will offer opportunities to attend postgraduate 
modules and summer schools.

CASE  support for an internship at the UK Met Office (Exeter) is being sought. 
This will allow closer contact with operational weather forecast in a 
professional  environment, as well as additional opportunities for training.

This project is suitable for students with a good (1st class or upper 2nd 
class) degree in physics, mathematics or a closely related environmental or 
physical science. Good computational skills are essential. Experience  in 
numerical modelling and in applied mathematics are preferred, but not essential.

Deadline: 1 February 2019

Application procedure:

Please contact Miguel Teixeira ( ) for enquiries on 
scientific aspects of the project.
