Research Assistant  
Department of Atmospheric, Oceanic & Planetary Physics, Oxford  
Grade 7: £29,099 - £35,788 p.a.  
We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher in the Predictability of Weather 
and Climate group within the sub-Department of Atmospheric, Oceanic and 
Planetary Physics (AOPP). This post is available from 1 April 2012 for up to 42 
months.

This position is funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) 
research grant awarded to Professor Tim Palmer and Dr Laure Zanna, to study the 
predictability of the coupled ocean-atmosphere system taking into account both 
initial condition and model uncertainty. Applicants should have a doctorate in 
climate physics or a related field and ideally a strong numerical modelling 
background.

Please direct informal enquiries to Professor Tim Palmer 
(tim.palmer@physics.ox.ac.uk) or Dr Laure Zanna (zanna@atm.ox.ac.uk).

Only applications received before midday on Wednesday 29 February 2012 can be 
considered. Applications for this vacancy are to be made online at 
www.recruit.ox.ac.uk Vacancy ID 101890 where a jobspec can also be found. You
