GLOBAL MODELLING OF ATMOSPHERIC CHEMISTRY AND CLIMATE
Supervised by Dr Paul Young and Dr Oliver Wild, Lancaster Environment Centre, Lancaster University
Applicants are sought for a global chemistry-climate modelling NERC-funded PhD studentship, working on a high profile, international multi-model study. The PhD studentship will also include some time spent in Boulder, Colorado.
The project will contribute to the new high profile global chemistry-climate modelling initiative (CCMI). CCMI will support upcoming science assessments of stratospheric ozone (e.g. WMO) and climate change (e.g. IPCC), as well as addressing emerging science questions about recent changes in atmospheric composition and their role in climate change, and improving understanding of the underlying processes. Specific topics could include past and future tropospheric ozone projections, the role of biogenic emissions, or the importance of stratospheric ozone in a changing climate.
APPLICATION DEADLINE: Midnight, 13th February 2013
PROVISIONAL INTERVIEW DATES: 26th or 27th February 2013
START DATE: October 2013
