[Met-jobs] 3-year post doc at University of Exeter on high-impact weather events

From "Screen, James" <>

Date Wed, 8 Jun 2016 08:42:28 +0000

This new full-time post is available from 01 September 2016 on a fixed-term basis for 36 months.


The College wishes to recruit a Research Fellow to support the work of Dr James Screen. The NERC-funded project will combine state-of-the-art global climate model simulations and impact models to generate large ensembles of climate impacts in present-day and near-future climate conditions, and study high-impact events in Europe, China and India.


This post is part of a larger project - High Impact Weather Events in Eurasia: Selected, Simulated and Storified (HIWAVES3) - with international partners in the Netherlands, Norway, China and India. HIWAVES3 facilitates a dialogue between climate modellers, impact modellers and partners in different geographical regions with knowledge of local societally-relevant meteorological events to construct stories of selected high-impact extreme events, simulated for present-day and future climate conditions. The story includes the origin of the extreme event from a meteorological perspective, its inter-regional linkages, its predictability, its societal impact and how climate change affects its magnitude and probability.


The post will include designing and conducting climate model simulations, analysis of simulated high-impact weather extremes, analysis of dynamical linkages between the Arctic, the mid-latitudes and the Monsoon regions, and collaboration with project partners to construct powerful stories about selected high-impact events.


The successful applicant will possess a relevant PhD. They will be able to develop research objectives, publish results in internationally-renowned journals and make presentations at conferences and other events. They will be a nationally recognised authority in physical climate processes and possess sufficient specialist knowledge to develop research programmes and methodologies. The successful applicant will also be able to work collaboratively and act as team leader as required. Experience in running climate models is desirable.
