Scientist – Ensemble Prediction System £25,500 with progression to £31,500 or £29,930 with progression to £38,325 depending on skills and experience Based in Exeter Full-time, fixed three year contract This is an excellent chance to join an unique and high profile organisation with an excellent reputation that’s home to world-class science and cutting-edge technological capabilities. The role This is an opportunity to play a key role in a new project aimed at providing improved projections of future climate variability and change. These will be designed to inform climate adaptation decisions with potential to affect millions of people worldwide. You’ll enjoy a high profile – both within the Met Office and in the wider climate science community. Specifically, your remit will be to provide the groundwork for the construction of a new modelling system for predicting climate anomalies and extreme events over the next 30 years. You will run and analyse experiments that test how well our latest computer models handle climate predictions, and how well we represent uncertainties in the results. Your judgements and feedback will inform the way we develop the new prediction system. The person With a relevant PhD (or equivalent postgraduate experience), you’ll ideally bring us strong research experience in climate or weather systems, most likely with a similar organisation or with a leading university. Your background will almost certainly be in maths or the physical sciences. To succeed, you’ll also need an innovative, incisive approach to problem-solving coupled with the all-round communication and team-working skills to convey both your enthusiasm and expertise to colleagues collaborating on this project.
