Post-doctoral research associate in regional modelling

Department of Physics, Imperial College London


Salary range: £26,720 - £38,930 per annum (depending on experience)
Full time: 2 years (initially)
Closing Date: 25th February 2011
Starting Date: June 2011


You would join an active and growing group in the Department of  
Physics. We are developing a novel regional climate model based around WRF 
coupled to the ROMS ocean model. The PDRA will be closely involved with 
improving the coupling of the two models. Currently our chosen test bed regions 
are the Caspian Sea, the Mediterranean 
and West Africa with unique and exciting  set of environmetnal challenges and  
opportunities.

You must have a PhD. in atmospheric science and  experience in operating the 
WRF 
model.

Demonstrated skill/proficiency in the following areas is desirable: running 
complex model codes on high-performance computers, advanced knowledge of 
numerical modelling, skill in analyzing numerical model output and verification 
statistics, skill in scientific programming (e.g., Fortran and/or C) and 
scripting languages such as Perl and/or Python, as well as some skills in 
graphical display programs such as NCL, Matlab, and/or IDL. Experience 
processing very large datasets in a variety of formats (e.g., GRIB, netCDF3/4 
and HDF4/5) is important.

Please send brief CV to Prof Toumi: r.toumi@imperial.ac.uk

Best wishes,
