Postdoc position for 2.5 years at the British Antarctic Survey on aerosol-cloud-climate modelling

The British Antarctic Survey, Cambridge, UK has a Postdoc position for 2.5 years on aerosol-cloud-climate modelling.

This position is funded by the EU Horizon 2020 project PolarRES (Polar Regions in the Earth System: Role of local-regional scale processes in the changing polar and global climate system).

Successful applicants will use a novel regional convection-scale chemistry-climate model to investigate the potential of local regions of open water within the sea ice zone (polynyas, leads) to alter aerosol-cloud interactions, as well as examine the resulting impacts of this on climate. The focus of this work will be on both the Antarctic and Arctic. The work will involve working closely with other modelling groups in PolarRES also working on this task.

The applicant should have experience using atmospheric models, and particularly chemistry-climate models. Strong understanding of aerosol-cloud interaction is also necessary.

The closing date for applications is 08 August 2021.
