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: https://jobs.leeds.ac.uk/vacancy.aspx?ref=ENVEE1097 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. University Grade 7 (£31,656 - £37,768 p.a.)
