A postdoctoral research scientist is sought to undertake exciting and innovative research into novel techniques for the simulation and parameterization of atmospheric convective clouds. This research will form a major component of the ParaCon programme with the aim of significantly improving the representation of convection across model scales from 1-100 km. The primary responsibility will be to develop, implement and test improved parametrizations of cloud condensation within higher-order turbulence-based parametrizations of unresolved flow. To do this you will use data from existing and, where required, new high-resolution reference simulations and theoretical ideas based on defined probability density functions. You will also work closely with others on the project (both in Reading and other institutions involved). Specifically, the work undertaken will need to take account of the results of those who are working on improved understanding and specification of turbulence length scales in convective clouds, and (separately but related) will need to combine with work by those developing new approaches to parametrization based upon mass-flux concepts to work towards a unified approach.
