Lecturer/Associate Professor in Climate or Atmospheric Modelling
Reference Number ENVEE0125
Grade 8/9
Job Summary

We have introduced the title of Associate Professor for our grade 9 academic 
staff, which is equivalent to Senior Lecturer.

We are seeking an atmospheric modeller with a track record of excellent 
research in global or regional model development and innovative applications to 
climate or weather phenomena. We are interested in candidates, for example, who 
implement and evaluate improved process representations and assess impact on 
the global or regional scales or modellers who diagnose local or regional 
weather and/or climate phenomena from global simulations.

This will be an outstanding opportunity to lead research that links with the 
established strengths of Institute for Climate and Atmospheric Science (ICAS) 
in process studies in order to address important issues such as climate change 
at regional scales. ICAS is an internationally excellent centre, conducting 
research into climate and weather phenomena in the areas of Atmospheric 
Dynamics and Clouds; Atmospheric Chemistry and Aerosols; and Climate Change and 
Impacts. We study globally important climate and weather processes by linking 
our field measurements, laboratory analyses and models from the scale of local 
weather phenomena to the global scale.

You will have the opportunity to benefit from our strong ties and formal 
Academic Partnership with the Met Office and our long-standing integration with 
and leadership of the UK National Centre for Atmospheric Science, and our 
growing links with the insurance industry, e.g. AXA and the Willis Research 
Network, facilitated through a new University hub on Climate and Geohazard 
Services. We also have strong collaborations with wider research on climate 
impacts within the Faculty of Environment and beyond, such as the Centre for 
Climate Change Economics and Policy, Africa College and the Ecology and Global 
Change group. ICAS is a leading developer of advanced models across all scales, 
including cloud-scale, mesoscale and global scale to study atmospheric 
chemistry and aerosols, cloud processes and land-atmosphere interactions. 
Consequently, ICAS make extensive use of HPC and you will benefit from access 
to national and University of Leeds HPC facilities and modelling support 
research scientists.

You should have strong academic foundations and a doctoral degree in a physical 
science. You will be expected to have a strong publication record, show 
evidence of research income generation, if appropriate, together with teaching 
experience or potential, and show strong vision for the future. You will be an 
excellent communicator and will contribute high quality teaching on our 
meteorology and environmental programmes.
