MISU are looking for 2 PhD students, one in Arctic aerosols and clouds and one in ocean and climate modeling. Deadline for applications is February 15, 2016.
PhD student in climate science with focus on Arctic aerosols and clouds
The position will be associated with the project ”Marine Aerosol Influence on Clouds in the High Arctic” funded by the Swedish Research Council. The aim is to understand how high Arctic cloud properties are influenced by aerosol particles, in particular those linked to the microbiological life at the ocean surface To investigate the problem, we will make use of high resolution (large-eddy) numerical modelling and measurement data from previous campaigns conducted close to the North Pole during summertime. The PhD student is expected to work both with data analysis and numerical modelling, but the specific focus of the study can be adjusted depending on the background of the PhD student.
PhD student in Ocean and Climate modelling
The position will be associated with the project ”The coupled ocean-atmosphere climate system in temperature-salinity-humidity space”. Emphasis will be on ocean and climate modelling with focus on how the global atmospheric hydrothermal cycle is connected to the ocean thermohaline circulation in the temperature-humidity-salinity space using the EC-Earth climate model. An important part of the work will be to adapt and use numerical ocean-atmosphere models and to analyse the model integrations. The candidate will need a good knowledge in ocean-atmosphere numerical modelling and computer programming (UNIX and FORTRAN).
