Four PhD Positions Available Arctic Climate, Environmental Science, and Atmospheric Science

25. april 2017

Stockholm Universitet

Application deadlines: 2 May 2017

Stockholm University is seeking applications for four fixed-term
four-year PhD positions in Arctic climate, environmental science, and/or
atmospheric science.

To meet the general entry requirements for all positions, applicants
must have completed a second-cycle degree, or a Master’s level degree,
completed courses equivalent to at least 240 higher education credits,
60 of which must be from second cycle or postgraduate/Master’s level
credits, or have equivalent qualifications.

For a complete description of the specific requirements for each
position, see the full position descriptions online.

The application deadline for all positions is 2 May 2017.

The four PhD positions available include:

1. One PhD Position in Applied Environmental Science/Atmospheric
Science, Department of Environmental Science and Analytical Chemistry

This position is available through the Department of Environmental
Science and Analytical Chemistry and will assist in providing an
improved understanding of the key processes governing the life cycle of
Arctic clouds necessary to quantify the role of clouds for Arctic
climate and their response to warming.

The successful applicant will perform field experiments in the Arctic,
analyze existing long-term data, and perform laboratory experiments
required prior to the field deployment. The goal of the project is to
study the microphysical properties of cloud condensation nuclei and ice
nuclei for by experimentally determining their size, composition, and
physico-chemical properties, coupled with process modeling. The results
will be used to improve the description of Arctic clouds in larger scale
models such as Earth System models.

Interest in experimental atmospheric research are essential for this
project, as well as basic knowledge of data analysis and programming
tools. Proficiency in both written and spoken English as well as good
collaboration skills are necessary.

2. Two PhD Positions in Atmospheric Science, Department of Meteorology

These positions will work within the interdisciplinary project titled,
“Arctic Climate Across Scales (ACAS)” to better understand the links
between the global climate and the regional climate in the Arctic.

The successful candidates will focus on one of two aspects of Arctic

– Large-scale atmospheric dynamics and transport of heat and moisture
into the Arctic; or
– The energy budget at the ocean/sea-ice/atmosphere interface using
various tools such as analysis of observations, climate modeling,
analysis of remote sensing, reanalysis products, or a combination of all.

3. One PhD Position in Arctic Climate, Department of Meteorology

This position will focus on the transport and associated effects of warm
air from southerly latitudes into the Arctic. The successful candidate
will employ direct observations, analysis of weather patterns,
trajectories, satellite observations, and models to attempt an
understanding of the processes and time scales associated with the
transport of warm air into the Arctic.
