The project will focus on clouds in the climate system. We are interested in understanding how clouds may respond to different types of radiative forcing (by aerosol particles or greenhouse gases) and how these cloud responses feed back on climate change.  We will tackle the problem through numerical modelling, focusing either on the small scale using large-eddy simulation modelling or on the large scale using general circulation modelling; a combination of the two approaches is also possible. The specific focus of the study is left open and will be developed together with the PhD student.

Application deadline is 2014-11-20.
