Post-doctoral Research Fellow in African climate science
Department of Geography, University of Sussex
Fixed term for 3 years
Expected start date: 1 April 2016
We are seeking a postdoctoral research fellow (PDRF) for a newly funded research programme ‘UMFULA’ (Uncertainty reduction in Models for Understanding development Applications), which is funded through the NERC-DFID Future Climate For Africa Programme, FCFA (futureclimateafrica.org).
Within the UMFULA project the climate science team will seek to improve our understanding of the climate system over Southern and Central Africa with a view to understanding the robustness and credibility of climate model projections for the region over the coming decades. The focus will be on high impact weather/climate events.
This will be addressed through a ‘process-based’ evaluation of climate models, covering processes governing the mean state, variability and change. We will examine the performance of models operating over a hierarchy of scales, including high-resolution simulations.
You will be expected to undertake research in the above topics (in collaboration with other members of the UMFULA consortium), lead in producing peer-reviewed publications and develop climate outputs to feed into other components of the UMFULA project. In addition
you may also be expected to lead grant applications to complement the project.
You will join the vibrant and collegiate Climate research cluster in the department http://www.sussex.ac.uk/geography/research/climateresearch
Interested candidates are encouraged to make an informal enquires to Professor Martin Todd (email@example.com)
Closing date for applications is 18th December 2015
Expected interview date is week commencing 11th January 2016
