Three PhD positions are available within the interdisciplinary project "Arctic Climate Across Scales (ACAS)", a collaboration between the Department of Environmental Science and Analytical Chemistry (ACES) and the Department of Meteorology (MISU), funded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation.
Two PhD positions at the Department of Meteorology will focus on one of two aspects of the Arctic climate system:
- Large-scale atmospheric dynamics and transport of heat and moisture into the Arctic;
- The energy budget at the ocean/sea-ice/atmosphere interface. The tools can be analysis of observations, climate modeling, analysis of remote sensing or reanalysis products or a combination of all.
The infromation about general and specific entry requirements for this position, the selection process, and terms of empolyment can be found on the web-site of Stockholm University.
The third PhD position at the Department of Environmental Science and Analytical Chemistry will help to provide an improved understanding of the key processes governing the life cycle of Arctic clouds. The successful applicant will perform field experiments in the Arctic, analyse existing long-term data and perform laboratory experiments required prior to the field deployment. The specific goal of the project is to study the microphysical properties of cloud and ice nuclei for by experimentally determining their size, composition and physico-chemical properties coupled with process modelling.

The closing date for the applications is May, 2, 2017.
