The University of Reading is seeking to appoint a motivated Postdoctoral Research Scientist with interests in large-scale atmospheric dynamics to join the ODYSEA project (Ocean Drivers of Seasonal to Decadal European Climate Variability). The postdoc will seek to understand the large-scale atmospheric circulation response to ocean drivers by performing idealised and GCM modelling experiments. The postholder will join a vibrant research community in the University of Reading’s Meteorology Department. There will be excellent opportunities to collaborate strongly with forecast providers (especially the UK Met Office) and partner Universities to explore the implications of their work for improved seasonal and decadal climate forecasting. ODYSEA is part of the wider NERC research programme on “Drivers of Variability in Atmospheric Circulation”.
You will have:
- Excellent quantitative scientific and analytical skills
- Demonstrated interest in climate science, particularly large-scale atmospheric dynamics
- A PhD in a quantitative physical or mathematical science (or expect to gain one shortly)
- Demonstrated computing skills (programming, use of complex scientific software)
- Strong team working and communication skills
