National Oceanography Centre, Southampton
Salary: £19,740-£23,390 (RA),£26,450-£29,710 (PDRA), possibly more for an 
exceptional candidate
3-year fixed term post

We are seeking a highly numerate scientist to undertake research in air-sea 
interaction. You will join a small team of scientists whose focus is the 
world-leading NOC Surface Flux and Marine Meteorological Dataset.  This dataset 
is widely used in research areas such as air-sea interaction and climate change 
and variability studies. The dataset has been used in the Intergovernmental 
Panel on Climate Change assessments, providing unique observational evidence 
independent of climate models.

Your main duty will be to lead the development and implementation of methods to 
estimate global fields of wind speed, wind direction and the air-sea exchange 
of momentum over the oceans from sparse, in situ meteorological observations. 
The dataset will span at least the last 50-years, potentially the last 100 
years.  It will be constructed using observations from a variety of different 
sources all with different uncertainty characteristics. The resulting fields 
will be incorporated in the NOC Surface Flux Dataset. Working closely with 
project scientists you will contribute to other aspects of the dataset, lead 
and contribute to the writing of scientific papers and present your work at 
international conferences. There may be opportunities to take part in field 
work on a research ship.
