The Horizon 2020 PRIMAVERA project is a major international research programme to develop a new generation of advanced high-resolution global climate models, capable of simulating and predicting regional climate with unprecedented fidelity for the benefit of governments, business and society. The post holder will become part of this international research team, developing a process-based understanding of the impact of climate variability and change on the energy sector.


It is anticipated that this post will include active engagement with key stakeholders in the energy sector to elicit areas of user need and to disseminate project results. A particular, but not necessarily exclusive, focus is likely to be electricity systems at national and continental scale in Europe.


You will have:

- Excellent quantitative scientific and analytical skills

- Demonstrated interest in climate science, particularly its impact on the energy sector

- A PhD in a quantitative physical or mathematical science (or expect to gain one shortly)

- Demonstrated computing skills (programming, use of complex scientific software, handling large datasets)

- Strong team working and communication skills

- Ability to identify and engage with stakeholders in the energy sector.
