PhD position in atmospheric mountain waves at University of Reading, Start: September 2022, Deadline: 21 January 2022

Deadline for applications: 21 January 2022 


Fully funded PhD position, with CASE support, at the Department of Meteorology, 
University of Reading, within the NERC SCENARIO Doctoral Training Programme on:

"Trapped lee waves as a source of low-level drag on the atmosphere"

lead-supervised by Miguel Teixeira (University of Reading), co-supervisors: 
Suzanne Gray (University of Reading), Annelize van Niekerk and Simon Vosper (UK Met Office).


The project entails using a combination of high-resolution numerical modelling, wave theory 
and field measurements to improve the representation of the drag force generated by short, 
horizontally-propagating gravity waves in numerical models used for weather prediction and 
climate models used to produce climate change projections, where that representation is an 
important source of uncertainty.

This project will provide training for skills in numerical and mathematical modelling and 
data analysis. It will offer opportunities to attend postgraduate modules at the 
University of Reading, summer schools, and scientific workshops and conferences.

CASE support for an internship at the UK Met Office (Exeter) is secured. This will allow 
closer contact with operational weather forecast in a professional environment, as well 
as possible additional opportunities for training.

This project is suitable for students with a good (1st class or upper 2nd class) degree 
in physics, mathematics or a closely related environmental or physical science. Good computational 
skills are essential. Experience in numerical modelling, data processing and applied mathematics are preferred.


Deadline for applications: 21 January 2022

Two PhD positions at FU Berlin

Dear Colleagues,

We are looking for two PhD students to join the Weather and Climate Processes Group at FU Berlin.

The topic of the first position is the dynamics of blocking anticyclones and their change in a 
warming climate. It will be investigated which processes in the atmosphere (e.g., dynamics of 
Rossby waves, latent heating in ascending air streams, ...) can lead to such a change and how 
they are represented in climate models. The topic of the second position is, on the one hand, 
the persistence of weather conditions and, on the other hand, their abrupt change. It will be 
investigated how persistence or abrupt changes are related to extreme weather events, which 
processes are responsible for them, and how these relationships change in a warmer climate. 
There is a teaching commitment for both positions.

Please see the following link for further details:

3-year PDRA in Atmospheric Science or Meteorology

Topic: Improving Understanding and Diagnosis of Jet-Stream Turbulence

The leading cause of weather-related aircraft incidents is turbulence near the jet stream, 
and climate change is exacerbating the problem. Clear-air turbulence (CAT) is one kind of 
turbulence difficult for pilots to detect and forecasters to predict. One source of CAT 
is the release of hydrodynamic instability.  Hydrodynamic instability, defined here as 
dry symmetric instability and its limiting case of inertial instability, is an imbalance 
between the horizontal pressure gradient, Coriolis, and centrifugal forces. We have an 
incomplete understanding of how the instability forms, releases, produces turbulence, 
and returns to stability. This project is a combined observational, modelling, and 
diagnostic approach to understand the life cycle of CAT produced by the release of 
hydrodynamic instability.

The project is a collaboration between Profs. David Schultz and Geraint Vaughan 
(University of Manchester) and Prof. Paul Williams (University of Reading).

This first vacancy is at Manchester but there will be a second vacancy at Reading later.

Internship: Validation of wind resource model chain

3E has developed its own wind resource modelling solution in the past years and is looking for a motivated 
intern to support the innovation team in the development of a validation framework. This validation framework 
aims to standardize and automate the workflow for evaluating uncertainty of the simulated wind resource. 
This will be achieved by comparing wind model chain outputs with on-site measurements in different 
atmospheric and site complexity to derive meaningful performance metrics. The key results should be 
easily interpretable by creating powerful visualisations and standard reporting. Furthermore, an 
analysis of these results should allow to build a link between the site complexity and the model error.

Postdoctoral Fellow in Environmental Science, American University

Postdoctoral Fellow in Environmental Science

American University: College of Arts & Sciences: Department of Environmental Science

Location
Washington, D.C.

Open Date
Jan 01, 2022

Description
We are seeking a postdoctoral fellow for an NSF-funded project that leverages high-spatial and 
high-temporal resolution satellite and drone-based imagery to study urban tree ecosystem function 
such as transpiration, photosynthesis, and phenology at multiple spatial scales. The candidate 
will be expected to pursue advanced research in their areas of interest and expertise, relating 
to one or more aspects of this project. Publication in major journals will be encouraged and 
facilitated by the project team. The position is roughly 90% dedicated to research (e.g., 
data collection, data analysis, manuscript preparation) and 10% for training undergraduate 
and master’s level students. The postdoctoral fellow will also receive relevant training 
and mentorship from the P.I. and will have funds available to cover conference registration 
and travel costs.

At the citywide scale of Washington, DC, we have 4+ years of PlanetScope 4-band data collected 
on a sub-weekly basis. These data allow for estimation of phenological variability due to 
species, site (e.g., impervious surface), and climate at the scale of the individual tree. 
An intensive study site is located on the campus of (nearby) University of Maryland, Baltimore 
County (UMBC). There, we overlay ground datasets such as sap flow, leaf-level spectroscopy and 
physiology, and pigment analysis with airborne imagery from hyperspectral and thermal sensors. 
Key goals include mapping tree transpiration using thermal imagery and collecting observational 
evidence of the coupling/decoupling of photosynthesis from transpiration under warming conditions. 
This project offers a broad array of research opportunities for the qualified postdoctoral fellow.

Duties and responsibilities. The postdoctoral fellow may:

--Participate in field data collection in summer/fall of 2022 and 2023 on UMBC campus. 
This will likely include leaf-level spectroscopy and drone work.
--Work with UMBC and Temple University collaborators to analyze and publish data from intensive campaigns. 
This could include developing methods for translating thermal imagery to canopy transpiration, 
modeling the relationship between species and site conditions on canopy temperature and transpiration, 
relating hyperspectral metrics of tree function to temperature metrics, connecting hyperspectral 
metrics collected at leaf and canopy scale to leaf-level physiological measurements and pigments.
--Analyze and publish using our existing, rich, but largely untapped spatial database of urban tree phenology.
--Engage in related work, connecting urban tree canopy and ground cover to a large dataset of mobile 
air temperature measurements in DC and other cities.

The target start date is June 2022. Initial appointment is for one year, with the expectation of 
renewal for additional 1 year given satisfactory progress.  Review of the applications will begin 
immediately and will continue until position is filled.

Qualifications

Required qualifications
--Ph.D. degree (before June 1, 2022) in remote sensing, ecology, plant biology, or other related fields
--Strong programming skills (R, Python, etc.)
--Ability to work independently
--Excellent written and oral communication skills
--First-author peer-reviewed publications
--Strong research or work experience in one or more key fields including hyperspectral and/or thermal remote sensing.

using equipment we have recently deployed to Halley base in Antarctica, and is co-supervised by 
Dr Tracy Moffat-Griffin at the British Antarctic Survey. Sadly the post can only be funded for 
students who qualify for 'home' UK fees - the definition of this is a little complicated, 
but is explained on the advert linked below.

The second is a *postdoc position* to study links between long-timescale climate processes 
and a multidecadal stratospheric gravity wave climatology (doi:10.1029/2020GL089557).  
Due to funder constraints, this is currently a short-term post that will finish at the 
end of September 2022, and therefore we are ideally looking for someone who can start 
as soon as possible; we hope to later extend the post until April 2023, but this depends 
on a funding application under review and cannot be guaranteed. We are aware that relocating 
for such a short contract could be very disruptive, and are happy to discuss the possibility 
of remote working (with occasional visits to Bath), but you would need to reside in the UK 
if so (for tax and visa reasons). 

Further details of the PhD studentship are at: https://www.findaphd.com/phds/project/waves-and-winds-at-the-edge-of-space-exploiting-antarctic-hardware-to-understand-atmosphere-ionosphere-coupling/?p139205 

Further details of the postdoc are at: https://www.bath.ac.uk/jobs/Vacancy.aspx?id=19695 

I am very happy to discuss either post by email -  c.wright@bath.ac.uk - but please note that 
any applications *must* be submitted through the links above to be considered.

The deadline for both posts is currently Sunday 23rd January (2022).

Post-doctoral position at LSCE

Young scientist position at LSCE 
Inverse modeling of global NO2, SO2 and NH3 emissions using satellite observations 

The Laboratoire des Sciences du Climat et de l’Environnement (LSCE) is looking for a motivated 
postdoc / young scientist candidate for the ESA funded WOREM project aiming to produce new 
estimates of global emissions of greenhouse gases and pollutants 

Job description 

Nitrogen and sulfur dioxide, NO2 and SO2, are primary pollutants emitted by the combustion of 
fossil fuels and wildfires which impact climate, air quality and atmospheric chemistry. 
Ammonia (NH3) is mainly emitted by agricultural activities, as well as industrial processes and 
wildfires. These species have a short lifetime in the atmosphere and produce nitrate and sulfate aerosols. 

Satellite instruments like IASI/METOP and TROPOMI/Sentinel-5P measure the global column 
concentrations of these species over the entire globe on a daily basis. This job position 
aims to assimilate these observations into the global atmospheric chemistry transport model 
LMDZ INCA at a resolution of 1° globally to infer time varying emissions of these three key 
pollutants. The model calculates all atmospheric processes that control their chemical 
lifetime and atmospheric transport. 

We propose to use a perturbation method where the LMDZ INCA model will be prescribed with 
varied a priori global emissions maps to calculate the local sensitivities of the concentrations 
of NO2, SO2 and NH3 to surface emissions from fossil fuel burning, agriculture and wildfires, 
and use these sensitivities to invert emissions by matching IASI and TROPOMI observations. 
High profiles publications are expected from the interpretation of emissions, and their 
changes during the COVID period. 

The candidate is expected to build and test the inverse modeling system based on LMDZ INCA and 
produce periodical update of emissions. Engineering support will be provided by KAYRROS, a 
Parisbased fast-growing EO company. The research will be performed at LSCE in collaboration 
with Tsinghua University and key partners of the ESA-funded WOREM project, the Free University 
of Brussels and Max Planck Institute of Chemistry in Mainz, Germany, and Amsterdam University. 

Requirements
 ● Programming skills, preferably in Fortran.
 ● Understanding and processing of satellite data and statistical analysis.
 ● Knowledge of atmospheric chemistry and transport modeling 

Selection Criteria:
 ● PhD in atmospheric chemistry / aerosols modeling / inverse modelling
 ● Experience with using satellite observations
 ● Autonomy, ability to work in a team and time management skills.
 ● Skills for multidisciplinary team-based activities with the ability to effectively 
communicate with colleagues and with staff from the partners of the project. 

What LSCE offer you: 

LSCE is a world-class research laboratory established and a collaboration between CEA, CNRS 
and the University of Versailles Saint-Quentin (UVSQ). It is part of the Institute Pierre 
Simon Laplace (IPSL). LSCE hosts approximately 300 researchers, engineers and administrative 
staff including many PhD and master’s students. LSCE will provide the employee with the 
opportunity to work directly on advanced methods with researchers from the LSCE and other institutions. 

Location: (https://www.lsce.ipsl.fr ) located about 20 km from the heart of Paris in the Orme des Merisiers green area. 

The project will be performed in close collaboration with the team of Pr. Bo Zheng at Tsinghua University (https://www.tsinghua.edu.cn/en/) 

Duration: Up to 24 months. 

Starting date: The position is available from Jan 2021 and will remain open until filled. 

Salary: Competitive with full social and health benefits, includes work experience. 

Apply: Please submit an application package with (1) curriculum vitae including most important recent 
publications, (2) statement of motivation (3) answers to the selection criteria above 
(4) names, addresses, phone numbers, and email of at least two references.

Postdoc position on atmospheric ice nucleation

Would you like to help to address some of the biggest uncertainties in climate projections, 
do you have an established background in clouds and aerosol research and do you want to 
further your career in a one of the world's leading atmospheric science institutes?

You will become a key team member of the Ice Nucleation group in Leeds who are playing a 
leading role in NERC's CloudSense programme (https://cloudsense.ac.uk/). You will be 
responsible for making measurements of ice-nucleating particles in two international 
field projects within the CloudSense programme: DCMEX: (Deep convective microphysics experiment) 
and M-Phase (Resolving climate sensitivity associated with shallow mixed phase cloud in the 
oceanic mid- to high-latitudes. In both of these projects you will make use of the newly 
developed Portable Ice Nucleation Experiment (PINE) instrument which is a new instrument 
for semi-autonomously measuring the concentration of atmospheric INP.

Core to both DCMEX and M-Phase are the measurements of the number concentration of 
ice-nucleating particles (INPs) that become active as a function of temperature. In 
the absence of INPs cloud droplets can supercool to well below -35°C and the prediction 
of primary ice crystals on INPs can trigger a cascade of microphysical properties that 
can completely alter the properties of a cloud and interact with dynamics. In this 
position you will make measurements of INP in two distinct ways. Firstly, you will 
collect aerosol onto filters from the FAAM aircraft and use cold stage assays to 
quantify the INP spectra. Alongside this you will make use of electron microscopy 
to examine the size resolved aerosol composition. The second technique you will use 
is for long term monitoring of INP using the new PINE chamber. This instrument was 
developed in a collaboration between Leeds-KIT (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology) 
and offers an unprecedented level of automation. We intend to use it for long term 
measurements from the Langmuir lab for the entire 2023 summer season (in the 
Magdelena Mountains). Finally, you will be responsible for overseeing ground based 
measurements of INP at the Langmuir lab during the FAAM flights in 2022.

An important part of your job will be to interact with the CloudSense modellers in 
order that we make the most useful measurements possible and also to ensure that 
the results are used correctly.

To explore the post further or for any queries you may have, please contact 
Ben Murray, Professor of Atmospheric Science (lead on M-Phase) b.j.murray@leeds.ac.uk

Dear All,

the Alfred Wegener Institute seeks expressions of interest from outstanding talents who are 
2-6 years past their PhD to apply for their own Young Investigator Group (YIG) with tenure 
track option in the field of Computational solutions for Earth System Modelling.

Next generation of high-performance computing (HPC) systems will provide unique opportunities 
for Earth system modelling - including the development and use of Digital Twins. At the same time, 
however, making effective use of increasingly parallel and heterogeneous architecture poses a 
major challenge. The YIG will conduct research in the field of computing with the aim of developing 
efficient, performance-portable and energy efficient Earth system models and associated work flows.

PhD position at Leipzig Institute for Meteorology: Variability of Arctic cloud top cooling as a function of cloud microphysical properties

The Leipzig Institute for Meteorology (LIM), Germany, invites applications for a

PhD Position:
Variability of Arctic cloud top cooling as a function of cloud microphysical properties derived from airborne thermal infrared imagery

We offer a PhD position to study Arctic clouds using state of the art airborne remote sensing instruments. The aim of this 
project is to use downward viewing airborne thermal infrared imagery to investigate the cloud top temperature with high 
spatial (< 10 m pixel size) and temporal (100 Hz) resolution. The measurements will be used to quantify the influence of 
spatial cloud inhomogeneities on the cloud top cooling, a key process leading to the long life time of Arctic clouds and 
potentially contributing to the amplified Arctic warming (Arctic Amplification). Details of the project motivation are given below.

The position is funded within the Transregional Collaborative Research Center TR172 on “ArctiC Amplification: Climate Relevant 
Atmospheric and SurfaCe Processes, and Feedback Mechanisms (AC)³” ( http://www.ac3-tr.de/ ) by the University Leipzig. Within 
the TR172, LIM together with the collaboration partners (Universities of Cologne and Bremen, TROPOS and Alfred Wegener Institute) 
aim to better observe, understand, and simulate processes leading to the current drastic climate changes in the Arctic. The PhD 
candidate will work in close collaboration with these (AC)³ partners and link own results to their modelling and satellite remote 
sensing activities.

Terms of employment
The PhD position (65% TV-L E13) is awarded for 3 years and open starting as soon as possible. We offer a productive and 
interdisciplinary working group including comprehensive supervision and integration into the Leipzig Graduate School on 
Clouds, Aerosol and Radiation ( https://www.lgs-car.tropos.de/ ) which is part of the ITRG of (AC)³ ( https://www.ac3-tr.de/phd/ ).

Qualification requirements
For the PhD position we expect strong interest in atmospheric science, in particular in cloud physics, remote sensing, 
radiative transfer, and climate. Applicants should have a Master in Meteorology or a related field. Experience in 
high-level scientific programming for data analysis is desirable. Candidates must possess excellent communication 
skills in written and spoken English.

Applications
Interested candidates should send a cover letter describing background; a CV, training and research interests; 
certificates; and the contact information of two referees as a single PDF to michael.schaefer[at]uni-leipzig.de.

Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position has been filled.

Selection
The selection for the position will be based solely on scientific merit without regard to gender, religion, 
national origin, political affiliation, marital or family status or other differences. Among equally qualified candidates, 
handicapped candidates will be given preference.

Detailed project description

Variability of Arctic cloud top cooling as a function of cloud microphysical properties derived from airborne thermal infrared imagery

The understanding of Arctic cloud processes crucially depends on the availability of appropriate observations. However, comprehensive 
field measurements (long-term ground based or short-term campaigns) require costly research infrastructure that need to be operated 
in the harsh Arctic environment. Therefore, observations of cloud processes within the Arctic Circle are sparse. Satellite remote 
sensing techniques can partly help to fill the gap of missing field observations in Arctic regions. However, although they may cover 
large spatial and temporal scales, they are unable to provide the required spatial and temporal resolution to investigate small-scale 
or short-term processes in clouds. In comparison, airborne observations, such as spectral imaging of reflected solar or emitted 
thermal radiation, provide areal measurements with a high spatial resolution down to several meters.

Arctic clouds are known to possess a significant cloud top cooling, which induces turbulence and entrainment processes 
and is crucial for the long life time of Arctic boundary layer clouds. However, the cloud top typically shows significant 
horizontally inhomogeneous structures. These small-scale inhomogeneities may feedback to the cloud top cooling depending 
on the position within, above or below the cloud top temperature inversion. Therefore, the differential cloud top cooling 
may buffer or enhance the cloud top inhomogeneities. However, those horizontal small-scale inhomogeneities are far below 
the spatial resolution of most of the satellite sensors. Therefore, airborne observations will be analysed to quantify the 
influence of spatial cloud inhomogeneities on the cloud top cooling.

The aim of this project is to use downward viewing airborne thermal infrared imagery to investigate the cloud top temperature 
with high spatial (< 10 m pixel size) and temporal (100 Hz) resolution, measured within different spectral channels. 
The infrared imager is installed on board of the High Altitude and Long Range Research Aircraft (HALO). Using this imager, 
first airborne measurements in Arctic regions will be performed out of Kiruna, Sweden during the HALO-(AC)3 campaign in 
March/April 2022. The observed cloud top temperature shall be evaluated as a function of the optical and microphysical 
cloud properties for different states of cloud top inhomogeneity. For this, cloud optical and microphysical retrievals 
based on thermal infrared wavelengths are required. Besides the measurements, necessary input for the retrievals will 
be obtained from radiative transfer simulations. Additional cloud information will be available from lidar, radar, 
imaging spectrometers in the solar spectral range and broadband radiometer.

Mit Hilfe von sowohl Klimaprognosen (von Jahreszeiten bis Jahren) als auch Klimaprojektionen (von Jahren bis Jahrzehnten) werden Sie für ausgewählte Regionen mit den Trends und der Variabilität einzelner für die Einschlagsplanung relevante Parameter arbeiten. Das daraus entstehende Verständnis der Zusammenhänge ermöglicht Sie zukünftiger Entwicklungen im Rahmen des regionalen Klimawandels quantitativ abzuschätzen. Letztendlich soll im Projekt ein cloud-basiertes Decision-Support-System entstehen, das mit Hilfe von künstlicher Intelligenz in der Lage sein wird dynamisch auf Klimaveränderungen und Entscheidungen der Revierförster zu reagieren.

Job description

As part of an interdisciplinary project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL) entitled “Cloud-based decision support system for district foresters”, you will develop a decision support model for district foresters on the basis of climatic and forestry-specific data sets and in cooperation with the external partners in the project. The selection and generation of suitable meteorological target variables with relevance for forestry activities and planning will be an essential part of your work. For this purpose, you will use and evaluate regional climate simulations. With the help of both climate forecasts (from seasons to years) and climate projections (from years to decades), you will work with the trends and variability of individual parameters relevant for logging planning for selected regions. The resulting understanding of the interrelationships will enable you to quantitatively estimate future developments in the context of regional climate change. Ultimately, the project aims to develop a cloud-based decision support system that will be able to react dynamically to climate changes and decisions of the district foresters with the help of artificial intelligence.

Young scientist position at LSCE

Inverse modeling of global NO2, SO2 and NH3 emissions using satellite observations
The Laboratoire des Sciences du Climat et de l'Environnement (LSCE) is looking for a motivated
postdoc / young scientist candidate for the ESA funded WOREM project aiming to produce new
estimates of global emissions of greenhouse gases and pollutants
Job description
Nitrogen and sulfur dioxide, NO2 and SO2, are primary pollutants emitted by the combustion of fossil
fuels and wildfires which impact climate, air quality and atmospheric chemistry. Ammonia (NH3) is
mainly emitted by agricultural activities, as well as industrial processes and wildfires. These species
have a short lifetime in the atmosphere and produce nitrate and sulfate aerosols.
Satellite instruments like IASI/METOP and TROPOMI/Sentinel-5P measure the global column
concentrations of these species over the entire globe on a daily basis. This job position aims to
assimilate these observations into the global atmospheric chemistry transport model LMDZ INCA at
a resolution of 1° globally to infer time varying emissions of these three key pollutants. The model
calculates all atmospheric processes that control their chemical lifetime and atmospheric transport.
We propose to use a perturbation method where the LMDZ INCA model will be prescribed with varied
a priori global emissions maps to calculate the local sensitivities of the concentrations of NO2, SO2
and NH3 to surface emissions from fossil fuel burning, agriculture and wildfires, and use these
sensitivities to invert emissions by matching IASI and TROPOMI observations. High profiles
publications are expected from the interpretation of emissions, and their changes during the COVID
period.
The candidate is expected to build and test the inverse modeling system based on LMDZ INCA and
produce periodical update of emissions. Engineering support will be provided by KAYRROS, a Paris
based fast-growing EO company. The research will be performed at LSCE in collaboration with
Tsinghua University and key partners of the ESA-funded WOREM project, the Free University of
Brussels and Max Planck Institute of Chemistry in Mainz, Germany, and Amsterdam University.
Requirements
● Programming skills, preferably in Fortran.
● Understanding and processing of satellite data and statistical analysis.
● Knowledge of atmospheric chemistry and transport modeling
Selection Criteria:
● PhD in atmospheric chemistry / aerosols modeling / inverse modelling
● Experience with using satellite observations
● Autonomy, ability to work in a team and time management skills.
● Skills for multidisciplinary team-based activities with the ability to effectively communicate
with colleagues and with staff from the partners of the project.
What LSCE offer you:
LSCE is a world-class research laboratory established and a collaboration between CEA, CNRS and
the University of Versailles Saint-Quentin (UVSQ). It is part of the Institute Pierre Simon Laplace
(IPSL). LSCE hosts approximately 300 researchers, engineers and administrative staff including
many PhD and master's students. LSCE will provide the employee with the opportunity to work directly
on advanced methods with researchers from the LSCE and other institutions.
Location: (https://www.lsce.ipsl.fr ) located about 20 km from the heart of Paris in the Orme des
Merisiers green area.
The project will be performed in close collaboration with the team of Pr. Bo Zheng at Tsinghua
University (https://www.tsinghua.edu.cn/en/)
Duration: Up to 24 months.
Starting date: The position is available from Jan 2021 and will remain open until filled.
Salary: Competitive with full social and health benefits, includes work experience.
Apply: Please submit an application package with (1) curriculum vitae including most important recent
publications, (2) statement of motivation (3) answers to the selection criteria above (4) names,
addresses, phone numbers, and email of at least two references.
