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? Please see more information on the detailed duties for each post and how to apply on: http://research.ncl.ac.uk/convex/newsevents/news/intensejobvacancies.html Kind Regards Hayley Professor Hayley Fowler Professor of Climate Change Impacts Water Resource Systems Research Laboratory School of Civil Engineering and Geosciences Cassie Building Newcastle University Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 7RU Tel: 0191 208 7113 Fax: 0191 208 6502 I only work Mon, Tues, Wed.
