Post-doctoral research positions in Aerosol, Cloud and Precipitation

We are looking for up to two postdoctoral researchers in the dynamic
Climate Processes Group
<> within the
sub-Department of Atmospheric, Oceanic and Planetary Physics at the
University of Oxford. The posts is available immediately for a
fixed-term period of 3 years.

These positions will be at the forefront of developing modelling based
assessments of aerosol, cloud and precipitation interactions as part of
the new European Research Council project constRaining the EffeCts of
Aerosols on Precipitation (RECAP). Science and simulations will utilise
from idealised global scale modelling to detailed CRM/LES modelling of
aerosol and cloud processes on smaller scales.

The successful candidates will work closely with national and
international collaborators and are expected to develop innovative
modelling approaches. The results should be presented at national and
international meetings as well as published in high-impact publications.
The ability and drive to work collaboratively, yet independently, as
part of a team is essential.

Applicants should possess, or be very close to obtaining a doctorate in
physics or a related field and ideally a strong background in in
atmospheric modelling. Depending on the post, additional experience with
either large-scale to meso-scale atmospheric dynamics/modelling or with
aerosol and cloud microphysics/cloud resolving/LES modelling would be of
benefit. Candidates are expected to demonstrate an excellent
understanding of atmospheric physics, a strong background in atmospheric
modelling and a demonstrated drive and ability to perform novel research
of international standing. The postholder will have the opportunity to
