You will examine how heat and carbon are taken up over the global ocean using a 
suite of ocean and climate models. You will test a hypothesis that the ocean 
controls how surface warming nearly linearly increases with carbon emissions, 
which is a relationship that has emerged from climate models. You will apply 
our new theory to explore the ocean heat and carbon uptake, addressing their 
similarities and differences and their effects on this climate relationship. A 
hierarchy of ocean and climate model experiments will be conducted ranging from 
simplified idealised domains to realistic global configurations. You will join 
a research team based at Liverpool University together with collaborative 
partners at Southampton University, the UK Hadley Centre and GFDL at Princeton, 
USA. You should have a PhD in physical oceanography, meteorology or fluid 
dynamics (or equivalent research experience), a first degree in a numerate 
physical or environmental science or mathematics with experience in numerical 
ocean modelling. You will be skilled at model analysis and ideally model 
development with an aptitude for theoretical investigation. You will be 
expected to publish in the relevant peer reviewed literature. The post is 
available for 2 years, until 31 August 2018.
