We are seeking to recruit a talented, statistically literate researcher to make 
specific contributions to two linked projects within the Earth Observation and 
Space research division of the Department of Meteorology. The projects are:

-       EU Horizon 2020 project “Fidelity and Uncertainty in Climate data 
records from Earth Observations” (FIDUCEO, www.fiduceo.eu)

-       European Space Agency Climate Change Initiative for Sea Surface 
Temperature (www.esa-cci-sst.org<http://www.esa-cci-sst.org>)



You will have:

-       A relevant PhD and numerate qualifications

-       Enthusiasm, ideas and willingness to collaborate with the international

-       Skills in handling and analysing models, geophysical and/or satellite 
data

-       Programming experience in Python and/or FORTRAN

-       Useful background knowledge of physics, remote sensing and/or climate



The specific tasks for this post include: tuning an existing model of 
near-surface temperature variability in the ocean against in situ data, and 
developing an uncertainty estimate for this model; consolidating remotely 
sensed estimates of stratospheric aerosol conditions following major volcanic 
eruptions.
