Please note that the closing date for applications has been changed. 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. University Grade 8 (£37,012 - £44,166 p.a.) or Grade 9 (£45,486 - £52,706 p.a.)
