Dear All,

Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Climate Physics

Department of Atmospheric, Oceanic and Planetary Physics (AOPP), Clarendon Laboratory

University of Oxford

Grade 7: £30,434 - £37,394 pa

Applications are invited for a full-time position as Postdoctoral Research Assistant in the Predictability of Weather and Climate group within the sub-Department of Atmospheric, Oceanic and Planetary Physics (AOPP).

The post is available for a fixed-term duration of 36 months.

The post is funded through the Horizon 2020 European Commission project PRIMAVERA, which involves 19 partners across Europe. The aim of the project is to “develop a new generation of advanced and well-evaluated high-resolution global climate models, capable of simulating and predicting regional climate with unprecedented fidelity”.

The successful candidate will be involved in the work package “Frontiers of Climate Modelling”, and will investigate the use of stochastic parameterisations to represent the variability of unresolved sub-grid scale processes.  The candidate will be responsible for the diagnosis and analysis of integrations carried out within the PRIMAVERA project, including the development of original research and analysis strategies, and potential model developments.

Applicants should possess (or be close to obtaining) a doctorate in physics or mathematics and have a strong background in numerical modelling. Previous experience in the field of atmospheric physics will be an advantage.

The post-holder will have the opportunity to teach. 

Please direct informal enquiries about the role to Professor Tim Palmer or to Dr Hannah Christensen.
