Postdoctoral Researcher (two posts)

Atmospheric, Oceanic & Planetary Physics, Oxford

Grade 7: £29,249 - £35,938 p.a.

We are looking for two postdoctoral researchers in the Predictability of
Weather and Climate group
within the sub-Department of AOPP. These posts are available as soon as
possible for three years.

One position is funded by the European Research Council (ERC) through an
Advanced Investigator award to Professor Tim Palmer, to advance the
science leading to the development of a prototype probabilistic Earth
System Model. The work will build on developments initiated at the
European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF). Subject to
final approval by the European Commission, the other position is funded
by the Framework Programme 7 project SPECS (Seasonal-to-decadal climate
Prediction for the improvement of European Climate Services).

The successful applicants are expected to work closely with Professor
Palmer and Dr Weisheimer to develop research strategies, and will take
responsibility for the relevant model developments, in addition to
working closely with scientists from ECMWF making use of the
supercomputing facilities there. Applicants should have a doctorate in
climate physics or nonlinear dynamics, or a related field, and ideally a
strong numerical modelling background.

Only applications received before midday on 1 October 2012 can be
considered. You will be required to upload a covering letter, brief
statement of research interests, CV and details of two referees as part
of your online application. Please ensure that references are sent in by
the closing date to Monika Porada (<>).

All applications have to be made online through the University of Oxford
recruitment webpage. Further details can be found at
