Sorry the wrong link was put on this post.

Please can you put on the post that to apply they need to follow the link:

University of Leeds

Faculty of Environment

School of Earth and Environment

Research Fellow in Convection-permitting simulations of East Asian climate. The 
dynamics of high-impact weather over East Asia

Fixed term for 20 months

Starting as soon as possible or at the latest 1 July 2016

Job sharing arrangements can be considered

We seek an ambitious scientist with interests in atmospheric dynamics and 
rainfall, to study the physical processes controlling high-impact weather over 
China. You will use observations and kilometre-scale numerical model 
simulations with the Met Office Unified Model (MetUM) to build a conceptual 
model of the East Asian monsoon and to quantitatively assess the precursors and 
physical processes leading to extreme rainfall events in China. In addition, 
you will assess how the urban heat island effect impacts regional climate, 
including the initiation of new convective storms. You will evaluate what is 
gained through the use of kilometre-scale (convection-permitting) simulations 
compared to global model simulations with a lower horizontal resolution in 
relation to the representation of the East Asian monsoon system and HIW 
scenarios. This position is part of the Climate Science for Service Partnership 
China (CSSP China) project and you will work closely with project partners at 
the Met Office, University of Reading and in China.

You will be expected to contribute to the ongoing research in atmospheric 
science in the School. Your work will lead to significant publications in 
atmospheric and climate science and you will also present your research at 
project meetings and national and international conferences. You will 
communicate outcomes of the research to relevant stakeholders outside academia.

You must have a PhD (or be close to obtaining) in a quantitative physical 
science, such as Physics, Applied Mathematics or Meteorology, and experience of 
the use of large observational and/or numerical model datasets. You should be 
willing to collaborate actively with partners in Europe and China. You will be 
used to programming on a Unix/Linux operating system and have excellent 
communication skills.

The University of Leeds' commitment to women in science has been recognised 
with a national accolade. The University has received the Athena Swan Bronze 
Award in recognition of our success in recruiting, retaining and promoting 
women in Science, Engineering and Technology (SET).  The Faculty of Environment 
are in the process of preparing an application for an Athena Swan award to 
recognise our commitment and work in these areas.
