Research Associate at University Of Cambridge

University Of Cambridge has an opening postdoc position. This fellowship is available for all students around the world. Applicants should apply before September 26, 2018.

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 6 months in the first instance.

Applications are invited for a post-doctoral research associate to join the group of Dr Anja Schmidt at the Department of Chemistry.

This project aims to derive volcanic forcing efficacies for large-magnitude explosive eruptions with different eruption source parameters (e.g. eruption magnitudes, eruption latitude, sulfur dioxide emission height, and eruption season) using state-of-the-art global aerosol-chemistry-climate models with fully interactive stratospheric aerosol schemes.

The successful candidate will combine state-of-the-art aerosol modeling with novel statistical tools to quantify volcanic forcing efficacy and its dependency on eruption source parameters. These results from this project will be invaluable in determining the uncertainty in and validity of the relationship currently used by the IPCC to deduce volcanic forcing of climate.

The successful candidate will have (or be about to obtain) a PhD in atmospheric science. They will be highly motivated and able to work independently. Some experience analyzing output from climate models and creating statistical emulators based on this output is necessary. Experience with running and setting up aerosol-climate models is desirable but not essential.
