A funded (Home/EU) PhD studentship is offered at Imperial College London, starting as soon as possible after October 1st 2019. In this project, you will combine the latest satellite datasets with new data on aerosol emissions of individual ships to investigate the 'experiments of opportunity' provided by shipping emissions, with a particular emphasis on convective clouds. The impact of aerosols on clouds is a significant outstanding uncertainty in the human forcing of the climate system. Without the ability to vary aerosol at a large scale, it is difficult to identify its influence on clouds. As large isolated sources of aerosol, ships provide ideal 'experiments' for investigating cloud processes, enabling you to control for known variables in the aerosol-cloud system and detect even very subtle changes to cloud properties. You will have considerable freedom to choose the pathway of the project, including using atmospheric models and working with industry. This studentship will be in the space and atmospheric physics group at Imperial, which conducts a wide range of research into atmospheric and oceanic physics. Opportunities also exist for collaboration through the Grantham Institute for the Environment at Imperial and the wider London, UK and international research communities. The ideal candidate will have 1st or 2.1 degree in physics or a related numerate field. To apply, please send a CV and short cover letter outlining your motivation and background to Edward Gryspeerdt (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please contact me at the above address with any informal enquiries.
