Dear All

I am advertising three 36-month research posts to work on my ERC-funded INTENSE 
project -"INTElligent use of climate models for adaptatioN to non-Stationary 
hydrological Extremes". The project will use a novel and fully-integrated 
data-modelling approach to provide a step-change in our understanding of the 
nature and drivers of global precipitation extremes and change on societally 
relevant timescales.

This will be based around six key research questions:

i)      How has sub-daily maximum precipitation changed over the last century, 
across continents, climate regimes and seasons?
ii)     How does precipitation at different time-scales vary with atmospheric 
temperature and atmospheric moisture as the atmosphere warms?
iii)    How do large-scale atmospheric and oceanic features influence or 
modulate the observed changes in precipitation extremes, the clustering of 
extremes and the variability between 'drought' and 'flood' periods, in 
different climate regimes and seasons?
iv)     What is the influence of climate model resolution and structure on the 
simulation of precipitation extremes for different climate regimes and seasons?
v)      What is likely the response to warming of precipitation and 
precipitation extremes at different time- scales across different climate 
regimes?
vi)     How can we use information from both high-resolution and 
coarse-resolution climate models in a more intelligent way to inform climate 
change adaptation decision making to better manage extreme hydrological events?
