Researcher in Arctic Meteorology

Researcher in Arctic Meteorology

Stockholm University - Department of Meteorology

Stockholm, Sweden

Project description

When developing Numerical Weather Prediction and Climate models, observation mainly from midlatitudes are used. With the ongoing climate change and interest in the Arctic region, there is a need to revisit parameterizations and to test them with process data. In this project, the focus is on improving model parameterizations of relevance for the Arctic with a special emphasis on clouds, boundary-layer turbulence and the interaction at the ocean/sea-ice/atmosphere interfaces. One of the main tools for the work is a newly developed coupled atmosphere/sea-ice/ocean single-column model (AOSCM). Observations from Arctic supersites, Swedish icebreaker expeditions and the upcoming MOSAiC will be used.

Qualification requirements

Researchers are appointed primarily for purposes of research and must hold a Swedish doctoral degree in Meteorology, Oceanography, Climate Science or in a related field or an equivalent degree from another country.

Assessment criteria

The assessment is based on previous research experience. Research analyzing model results and/or model development analysis will be an advantage. Doctoral candidates may apply for the position if they expect to receive the PhD degree before the starting date of the position.

The applicant should have excellent knowledge of both oral and written English.
