[Met-jobs] Vacancy - ARISE Post-doctoral Research Assistant

From Andrew James Charlton-Perez <>
Date Mon, 19 Dec 2011 10:05:56 +0000

The Department of Meteorology at the University of Reading seeks a post-doctoral research assistant to undertake research for a new EU FP7 funded programme (ARISE) investigating the role that novel observations of the middle and upper atmosphere might play in improving weather and climate prediction. The project funds a network of researchers throughout Europe with expertise in atmospheric measurement and modelling. You will join an energetic research group working on stratospheric climate and variability.

The main duties and responsibilities of the post are to:
- Complete a background review of current observational capability in the middle and upper atmosphere and the capability of novel observational methods (Infra-sound, airglow, LIDAR) to fill gaps in the current observing system

- Perform initialised numerical weather prediction experiments to investigate the theoretical impact of a range of middle atmospheric observation technologies on the potential predictability of the stratosphere and troposphere

- Perform longer simulations with a climate model to investigate the impact of improved estimates of gravity wave processes on the simulation of stratospheric climate including stratospheric variability and the Brewer-Dobson circulation.

The post is full-time, fixed-term for 30 months at grade 6 in the salary range £27,428-£28,521 p.a., starting on 1st April 2012.
