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.
