[Met-jobs] Postdoctoral research scientist position in atmospheric dynamics and climatology at the University of Exeter

From Hugo Lambert <>
Date Fri, 14 Aug 2015 14:52:22 +0100

Postdoctoral Researcher in Climate Dynamics in the College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences at the University of Exeter

The College wishes to recruit a postdoctoral scientist in the general area of climate dynamics to support the work of Professor Geoffrey Vallis and Dr Hugo Lambert. This post is available immediately for at least 30 months and is part of the Met Office Newton Fund Climate Science for Service Partnership.

The post will include numerical modelling and theoretical activities concerning the large-scale circulation of the atmosphere, its interaction with convection and radiation, and the impact on regional climate and its predictability. The work will use models of the atmospheric circulation of varying levels of complexity with the aim of identifying key sources of modelling uncertainty and building simple models of robust processes that improve understanding of regional climate change.

The successful applicant will be expected to present research progress and outcomes at international conferences, write lead-author peer-reviewed publications, and to assist with the preparation of proposals and applications to external bodies.

Applicants will possess a relevant PhD and be able to demonstrate sufficient knowledge in the discipline and of research methods and techniques to work within established research programmes. The successful applicant will be knowledgable in atmospheric, planetary or geophysical fluid dynamics and be able to develop research programmes and methodologies, and will also be able to work collaboratively and, as appropriate, help supervise the work of others.

For further information please contact Geoffrey Vallis ( or Hugo Lambert (
