Four faculty positions in the Department of Meteorology, University of Reading, UK

We are seeking excellent candidates for the following permanent, full-time faculty positions in the Department of Meteorology, which resides in the School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences at Reading.

Lecturer in Meteorology

We seek an outstanding scientist with an excellent research track record in meteorological science, with particular emphasis on weather-related processes. Research areas could include (but are not limited to) convective storms, boundary-layer meteorology, mesoscale phenomena, synoptic-scale dynamics, clouds and precipitation, tropical weather systems, mountain meteorology and the development of numerical models. The successful candidate will join a Department with thriving activities in many aspects of weather research, and there are excellent opportunities for collaboration with the Met Office via our hosting of Met Office research groups in mesoscale modelling and mesoscale data assimilation.

Informal queries may be made to Professor Giles Harrison (r.g.harrison@reading.ac.uk) or Professor Robin Hogan (r.j.hogan@reading.ac.uk). Job reference number LE11028.

Lecturer in Meteorology and Statistics

We seek an outstanding scientist with an excellent research track record in meteorological statistics and/or statistical climatology.  Research areas could include (but are not limited to) detection and attribution of climate change, forecast verification, ensemble design, predictability, extreme events, weather and climate risk, and downscaling and regional climate prediction. This is a joint appointment between the Department of Meteorology and the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, and there are excellent opportunities for collaboration within both departments. In parallel we are recruiting a Lecturer in Statistics and a Reader in Statistics and we are happy to accommodate applicants who wish to be considered for more than one of these positions.

Informal queries may be made to Professor Robin Hogan (r.j.hogan@reading.ac.uk) in Meteorology or Professor Sue Todd (s.c.todd@reading.ac.uk) in Mathematics and Statistics. Job reference number LE11026.

Willis Lecturer in Weather and Climate Risks for Insurance

We seek an outstanding scientist to join our recently established Weather and Climate Hazards Laboratory (WCHL) located within the Department of Meteorology. The successful candidate will conduct innovative research related to the monitoring, quantification and prediction of risks linked to weather and climate hazards, such as windstorms, flooding, heat waves and drought. He/she will also develop and apply innovative research in partnership with business, with a particular focus on the insurance industry (including insurers, reinsurers, brokers, modelling companies etc). To enable the person appointed to focus on the research and enterprise aspects of the role, teaching duties will not be required in the first two years.

Informal queries may be made to Professor Pier Luigi Vidale (p.l.vidale@reading.ac.uk) or Professor Giles Harrison (r.g.harrison@reading.ac.uk). Job reference number LE11029.

Senior Research Fellow/Lecturer in Land Surface Data Assimilation

We seek an outstanding scientist to carry out research in land-surface data assimilation, as either a Senior Research Fellow or a Lecturer. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to work on a new European Space Agency funded project on assimilation of satellite data into a soil-vegetation-atmosphere model. He/she will be expected to play a leading role in national and international endeavours in this area. There are many opportunities for collaboration; the Department has thriving groups studying many aspects of data assimilation, Earth observation and land-surface physics, and the University is a member of the International Space Innovation Centre based nearby at Harwell.

Informal queries may be made to Professor Robert Gurney (r.j.gurney@reading.ac.uk). Job reference number RS11036.


All positions offer a starting salary between £36,862 and £45,336 per annum. For further details, please visit https://www.reading.ac.uk/about/jobs/ and search current vacancies for "lecturer".
