Eligibility for Uppsala University PhD Scholarship 2013 :

  • The applicant should have a university degree in meteorology or similar.
  • The successful candidate should have a solid base in mathematics and physics and basic computer skills. Previous experience in programming and numerical methods is a merit as is experience in experimental methods.

Uppsala University PhD Scholarship Open for International Students :

  • The scholarship is open for Swedish students.

Uppsala University PhD Scholarship Description :

  • As 70% of the Earth Surface is covered by water a correct description of the exchange processes over sea is fundamental. Waves and air-sea interaction is crucial when modeling the climate system as it is the link between the dominating spheres ( atmosphere and ocean ). Air sea interaction is important also when modeling other processes relevant in the marine environment ( off – shore wind energy, dispersion and deposition of pollutants in marine environments ).
  • The meteorological research at Uppsala University concerning the marine atmospheric boundary layer has been ongoing for severalyears, including the work with field station at √Ėstergarnsholm east of Gotland. The ongoing work combines experimental studies with modeling.
  • The purpose of the project is to develop a coupled numerical model for the air-sea-wave system. The models system should consist of existing model components that needs to be improved to better describe the interaction. The project is collaboration between Uppsala University and SMHI ( Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute ). The project will mainly include model development, but may also include some experimental field work.
