Development of European Extreme Weather Climatologies Department of Space and Climate Physics (MSSL) University College London, UK. Applicants are invited for a NERC-funded PhD Research Studentship at the Mullard Space Science Laboratory located near Guildford, Surrey, UK. MSSL is a Department of University College London (UCL) with a strong track record of research into weather extremes and of commercialising such research. The studentship is available immediately, and must start by September/October 2011. The project will examine the following weather extremes: extreme rainfall, temperature extremes (hot and cold), and heatwave and freeze incidence. For these extremes the project will derive exceedance probability distributions and trends for various locations and levels of spatial resolution across Europe using an untapped state-of-the-art Met Office European observational database. The research will provide scientific excellence, valuable input to the next International Panel on Climate Change report and, through its derived products, help businesses further understand their risk from extreme weather. Applicants must have a first class or 2.1 undergraduate degree in a relevant physical, mathematical or computational subject. Applicants must be a UK citizen or an EU national who has been resident in the UK for the previous three years. Applicants should possess good analytical and research skills, good IT skills, good written and verbal communication skills, and be committed to computational rigour and to high quality research.
