Background Within the ERC-funded junior research group “Understanding Arctic amplification of climate change through air-mass transformations”, we are looking for a PhD student to study how air masses cool and dry on their trajectory through the Arctic. The student will employ both observations and modelling to understand how long liquid-containing clouds can be sustained under cold and dry conditions, and how the processes controlling such clouds affect Arctic climate.
