Met Office OBR (Observation Based Research) Scientist £25,500 up to £35,040 for exceptional candidates + benefits Cardington, Bedfordshire The role The quality of Met Office products depends on the quality of the forecast models that allow us to predict the weather and climate. The models need to accurately represent key processes occurring in the atmosphere, to enable us to provide the general public and our customers with the most relevant and up-to-date meteorological information. In this unique role you will work with a team of experts here at our Cardington research station as you carry out a range of ground based weather observations. Using state of the art instruments like surface energy flux stations (up to 50m altitude), Doppler Lidars, microwave radiometers, a tethered weather balloon system, an instrumented van, and a small unmanned aircraft (UAS), you will gather these observations and conduct research in to how the atmosphere works. You’ll then use these observations to assess and help us improve the performance of our Numerical Weather Prediction and Climate models. Aside from analysing the captured data and undertaking experiments, you’ll also spend some of your time conducting research to develop new instruments which will allow us to harness even more information from the atmosphere in the future. Please see attachment for further details.
