Postdoctoral positions in weather and climate modelling: convection

The University of Exeter is collaborating with the Met Office and other UK universities on a major new research programme "Understanding and Representing Atmospheric Convection across Scales", to deliver significant improvements to weather and climate prediction modelling systems. We wish to recruit one or more Research Fellows to support the work of Prof. John Thuburn, Prof. Geoff Vallis, and Dr Bob Beare under this programme. The work carried out by the Fellows will have the potential to make an important impact on forecasting capability.

This posts are available from 1 August 2016 (or as soon as possible thereafter) for up to 36 months (depending on agreed start date). The successful candidates will be appointed as Research Fellow (grade F).

Applicants should have a PhD in the atmospheric sciences, applied mathematics, physics, or another quantitative science. Experience in atmospheric convection and/or in running and evaluating the output from atmospheric numerical models is helpful but not essential.

The University of Exeter is currently ranked within the top 1% of institutions globally and is consistently placed in the top ten in the UK. We have excellent research links with the Met Office through the Met Office Academic Partnership, with numerous ongoing collaborative research projects and several jointly funded staff.
