We have a vacancy for a post doctoral researcher in Earth observation.
This research focuses on the improvement of the Met Office JULES
land-surface model. JULES  is written in Fortran 90, and calculates the
fluxes of carbon, water and energy from the land to the atmosphere. The
objective of the work is to improve the integration between the JULES
model and satellite data. This will involve improving the calculation of
absorption and scattering of solar radiation by the land surface
vegetation in JULES.

The job requires a PhD in Earth Sciences, Atmospheric Sciences,
Geophysics, Physics, Computer Science, Geography or a related field. The
candidate must have very good numerical skills and should be familiar
with optimization and inversion techniques, and statistical analysis. It
is essential that the candidate is proficient in at least 1 computer
language, preferably Fortran 90 or C or C++.

The position is for just under 2 years, and to start as soon as
possible. Closing Date: for applications: 14 July 2011

Full details and application form are given on:,59181,en.php
