Hi Roger - can you post this on Met Jobs please? Thanks, Mat College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences Exeter Climate Systems The College wishes to recruit an Associate Research Fellow to investigate physical processes in the climate system key to uncertainty in 21st century climate change projections. This post is available from 15 August 2013 for 36 months. The post will form part of the NERC funded Process Based Emergent Constraints on Global Physical and Biogeochemical Feedbacks (PROBEC) team that aims to constrain climate change projections by understanding how observable features of climate link to future changes. The research fellow will explore physical atmospheric constraints using satellite observations and contemporary General Circulation Models. Two areas that we wish to investigate are (i) understanding the link between tropical tropospheric temperatures and water vapour concentration using satellite data that are now reliable enough for trend analysis and (ii) the relationship between interannual variability and longer term change in cloud cover. Beyond this, the research fellow will have considerable latitude to pursue ideas in which they are interested. PROBEC is a collaboration between the University of Exeter, the UK Met Office and the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory. The successful applicant will work closely with Dr Hugo Lambert and Professor Mat Collins. Applicants must possess a PhD in climate science or a related discipline and have an interest in understanding large-scale changes in the climate system. Applicants should have the potential to carry out creative and independent research, and to publish in the peer-reviewed literature. Experience of working with large datasets, complex numerical models and satellite observations would be an advantage. To view the Job Description and Person Specification document pleaseclick here. Interviews are expected to take place in July. The College is working towards department Silver Athena SWANawards as a commitment to providing equality of opportunity and advancing the representation of women in STEM/M subjects: science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine. The University of Exeter is an equal opportunity employer which is 'Positive about Disabled People'. Whilst all applicants will be judged on merit alone, we particularly welcome applications from groups currently underrepresented in the workforce.
