Physical Oceanographer

Marine Physics and Ocean Climate group, National Oceanography Centre, Liverpool

About the role:

We are seeking a scientist to study the regional sea level projections with 
high-end RCP scenarios by 2100. This post is funded by EU project ‘Responses to 
coastal climate change: Innovative strategies for high end scenarios-Adaptation 
and Mitigation” (RISES-AM). The aim of the project is to study implications of 
high-end scenarios (global average warming >2°C) for coastal areas associated 
with sea level rise and changes in extreme sea levels by 2100. This will allow 
a better quantification of impacts and vulnerabilities associated with sea 
level rise, showing that adaptation is possible at an affordable cost (compared 
to risk) and will serve to inform policy and decision makers, contributing to 
raise awareness on the multiple dimensions of possible adaptation pathways.

As a researcher in the RISES-AM project, you will assemble regional sea level 
projections with high end RCP scenarios by 2100. As a part of your role you 
will use outputs from CMIP5 model runs to calculate steric component of sea 
level rise and examine contribution from melting of glaciers and ice sheets. 
Maps of regional sea level changes will result from regional patterns of mass 
changes of the ocean from glaciers and ice sheets and changes in thermal 
expansion of the ocean with RCP scenarios. You will write scientific papers and 
present findings at project workshops and international scientific conferences

This post is offered on NERC terms and conditions and is available initially 
for a fixed term of 2 years.



Salary:

£26,450 to £29,710 per annum

About you:

You will have strong computational and programming skills, have a PhD in 
Maths/Physics/ environmental science, and have experience in working with large 
data sets. Your first degree will be in physical sciences, engineering, 
mathematics or oceanography. A proven ability in scientific publication or 
experience in numerical modelling would be advantageous and good communications 
skills are essential.

What we can offer you:

In return for your talents, we offer a competitive remuneration package, 
including a RCUK pension scheme, 30 days annual leave with a further 10.5 
Public/privilege days. Opportunities for further training and development are 
supported. The role will include periods of travel both within the UK and 
internationally.

About us:

The National Oceanography Centre is an international leader in sea level 
science and the development and application of coastal numerical models.
