Interview date: TBC

Apply online:


We seek an enthusiastic research scientist to undertake research into tropical-extratropical atmospheric teleconnections on sub-seasonal and seasonal timescales as part of a wider international project (InterDec) on interactions between the tropical and extra-tropical climate system. In collaboration with scientists at the European Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasting, you will use re-analysis, and re-forecast sets from the ECMWF sub-seasonal and seasonal forecasting systems and the WMO S2S Prediction Project and modelling experiments within InterDec to analyse the dynamical mechanisms of tropical-extratropical teleconnections. The focus will be on tropical sub-seasonal variability as a source of predictability for sub-seasonal variability in the extra-tropics and its potential rectification onto longer timescales, including relationships between the MJO and: the NAO; Sudden Stratospheric Warmings and strong stratospheric vortex regimes; and Arctic-sea ice, and their subsequent influence on high-latitude tropospheric weather.


You will have:

- A PhD in Atmospheric Science or related field, a Mathematical Science, or equivalent research experience

- Strong skills in the analysis and interpretation of complex datasets

- A knowledge of geophysical fluid dynamics

- Good oral and written communication skills
