Dear All, Please see below an exciting opportunity for a research post on wind storm modelling. Although employed by Newcastle University (UK), the post is hosted by the Met Office in Exeter (UK). Best Richard ------ D30929R - Research Associate (Wind Storm Hazard Modeller) Application form can be accessed here: http://tinyurl.com/gox2feu or via the University's job vacancy site: https://vacancies.ncl.ac.uk Salary: £28,982 to £30,738 (with progression to £37,768) Closing Date: 18 January 2016 An exciting research post is now available for a suitably motivated and qualified candidate to develop new insights into climate change impacts on wind storms in the NERC STRAIN (STorm Risk Assessment of Interdependent infrastructure Networks) project. You will be employed by Newcastle University but be based at the Met Office Hadley Centre in Exeter in the Understanding Regional Climate Change team led by Dr. Elizabeth Kendon. In STRAIN, you will investigate wind fields over the UK from the unique CONVEX very high resolution (1.5km) climate model outputs to analyse changes in extreme wind intensity and direction, and compare them to standard models. This will inform the development of wind storm loading functions that are applied by other STRAIN project researchers to analyse risks to electricity networks. You may come from a science, engineering, maths, geography background. You will hold a PhD and or equivalent research experience, and have previous experience in the analysis of climate model outputs. In addition to having a strong technical background, you will have good interpersonal skills and the ability to combine independent thinking with being part of a multi-disciplinary team. This post is available fixed term for 12 months Professor Hayley Fowler (research post line manager) or Professor Richard Dawson (STRAIN project Principal Investigator) Hayley.email@example.com or Richard.firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.ncl.ac.uk/ceg/research/water/index.htm www.ncl.ac.uk/ceser The School holds a bronze Athena SWAN award in addition to the University's bronze Athena SWAN award in recognition of our good employment practices for the advancement of gender equality, and the University holds the HR Excellence in Research award for our work to support the career development of our researchers. We are also a member of the Euraxess network. ---------------------------------------------------- Professor Richard Dawson Director, Centre for Earth Systems Engineering Research (CESER) School of Civil Engineering and Geosciences Room 3.19: Cassie Building, Newcastle University Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 7RU, UK Tel: +44(0)191 208 6618 www.ncl.ac.uk/ceg/staff/profile/richard.dawson www.ncl.ac.uk/ceser/ @nclceser www.ibuild.ac.uk - Infrastructure Research Centre
