We need a talented Researcher to undertake research for a Natural Environment Research Council funded project called PRESTO (PREcipitation Structures over Orography).

You will perform research to pinpoint the physical mechanisms behind terrain-locked rainbands and quantify their predictability in numerical weather prediction models by conducting convection-permitting (O(1 km)) ensemble simulations of banded events over the UK and the Alps. This is an opportunity to be part of a collaborative project between the Universities of Reading and Manchester, the Met Office, and other project partners.

This post will be held at the Department of Meteorology, University of Reading (http://www.met.rdg.ac.uk), a vibrant, internationally renowned, centre for Atmospheric and Oceanic Science that celebrated its 40th birthday in 2006. In the most recent (2008) UK Research Assessment Exercise, 75% of our research was graded as world-leading or internationally excellent. Our weighted score makes us the highest-graded department focusing on the fundamental science of weather and climate.
