[Met-jobs] Post-doctoral research position on radiative effects of biomass-burning aerosols

Post-doctoral research position on the radiative effects of biomass-burning aerosols
Department of Meteorology, University of Reading, UK
We are looking for a post-doctoral researcher in the Aerosol group of the Department of Meteorology at the University of Reading. The post is available immediately for a fixed-term period of 3 years.
This position is part of the CLARIFY-2016 (CLouds and Aerosol Radiative Impacts and Forcing: Year 2016) project, which is funded by the UK Natural Environment Research Council. CLARIFY-2016 involves a field campaign with the UK Facility for Airborne Atmospheric
Measurements in Namibia in late summer 2016 (http://ift.tt/231vMNx), and global and

high-resolution numerical modelling activities. CLARIFY-2016 is a major consortium programme consisting of 5 UK universities (Exeter, Leeds, Manchester, Oxford, and Reading) with project partners from the UK Met Office, European universities and research institutes.
The successful applicant will assess, using large-eddy modelling, the relative magnitude of rapid adjustments to aerosol-radiation interactions (also called semi-direct effects). This modelling work will be supported by newly-acquired aircraft measurements
of aerosol, cloud, temperature, humidity and radiation profiles.
Applicants should have a doctorate in atmospheric physics or a related field including meteorology and climate science, and experience of numerical modelling of radiative transfer, aerosol or cloud processes. Familiarity with large-eddy modelling is desirable,
but not essential.
