Dear colleagues,

The Environmental Change Institute (ECI) is seeking to appoint a Postdoctoral 
Research Assistant to join the climate research team in one of the University’s 
highest-profile climate research operations, (CPDN), as 
part of two collaborative projects: MaRIUS and TITAN. You will have 
demonstrable expertise in the analysis of climatological data and the 
implementation and interpretation of climate model simulations.

The particular focus of this work is to analyse the newly developed event sets 
of droughts and heat waves within the framework of probabilistic event 
attribution in the UK and look at specific extreme events in the early 20th 
century in Europe and the US. This includes three main tasks: (1) working with 
the team to help interpret and use the data sets; (2) conduct attribution 
studies of societal relevant extreme weather events; (3) develop ideas for new 
research questions and collaborative research to make use of the unique data 

Applicants may come from a range of backgrounds including natural sciences, 
engineering, statistics or applied mathematics and will have a doctorate (or 
near to completion) or equivalent research experience in a relevant subject. 
You will be able to propose and develop new theoretical approaches and 
implement them in computer code. You will have a background in atmospheric 
physics or meteorology and have very good scientific programming skills. You 
must be able to work collaboratively as part of a team.

This post is fixed-term until 31 December 2018 in the first instance.

The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on Friday 6 January 2017. It is 
intended that interviews will be held week commencing 17 January 2017.

Further details on the position can be found at: 

Kind regards
