ADVERTISEMENT FOR RESEARCH ASSOCIATESHIPS AND
RESEARCH FELLOWSHIPS IN WEATHER AND CLIMATE SCIENCE
The Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology (IITM), Pune, an autonomous
research organization under ESSO/MoES, fully devoted to cutting edge research in
various aspects of weather and climate science. The activities include training of post
graduates and motivate them to take up research careers in atmospheric and oceanic
sciences required to improve skill of weather and climate forecasts.
The Institute has excellent infrastructural facilities such as High Performance
Computers, observational facilities like RADARS, Radiometers, LIDAR etc., modern
library, workshop and other scientific support. It has a strong link with various
universities and national and international organizations. Major research areas at the
institute are climate modelling, climate change projections, Climate variability and
climate dynamics, extended range and seasonal forecasts, physics and dynamics of
tropical clouds, clouds-aerosol interaction, air pollution monitoring, modelling and
prediction, satellite and radar Meteorology and paleoclimatology.
