[Met-jobs] Fwd: Lectureship in Physical Geography, Liverpool

To "Morse, Andy" <>,
Date 22 Mar 2011 15:57:45 +0000

Lecturer in Physical Geography

£30,870 - £35,789 pa
School of Environmental Sciences, University of Liverpool
Closing date for receipt of applications: 15 April 2011

Description: We seek environmental scientists / physical geographers who can complement our existing strengths in climate change and impacts, environmental change and human interactions, process dynamics and sediment systems. You must be able to display research and teaching excellence in climate change impact modelling or earth surface process modelling.

The post will be focused in one of two areas. The successful candidate will ideally have experience in either of the following:

1. Climate impacts modelling : the postholder will work with data generated by climate models, particularly state-of-the-art initial condition ensemble prediction systems at monthly to decadal time scales and ensembles of longer term climate projections at both regional and global scales being generated by internationally recognised research within the cluster led by Dr Andy Morse. The area of impacts modelling could include health, water resources, food production and ecosystems, morphological impacts, natural hazards and other societal impacts from climate variability over a range of time scales.

2. Earth surface process dynamics and modelling : the postholder will work primarily on sediment flux modelling and mechanics and dynamics of erosion, sediment transport and sedimentation and their interactions with other processes such as tectonics and biogenics. They will apply the modelling at a range of spatial and temporal scales, collaborating with researchers in the cluster working on past and present sediment fluxes in catchments and to deep-sea basins and undertake research on projections of impacts of future climate, land use and environmental management scenarios.
