We are inviting applications for two fully-funded PhD studentships in the area of statistical post-processing of weather forecast ensembles in collaboration with the Met Office.

Candidates should have an interest in the application of mathematics and statistics in weather and climate science; prior knowledge in numerical weather prediction and statistical post-processing is not necessary.

**********
Project 1:
"Statistical post-processing of ensemble forecasts of extreme weather events"

This project is funded as a NERC Industrial CASE Studentship with the Met Office as CASE partner; it is not in competition with other PhD projects at the University of Exeter.

Main supervisor: Dr Frank Kwasniok (University of Exeter)
Co-supervisors:  Dr Chris Ferro (University of Exeter)
                 Prof Jonathan Rougier (University of Bristol)
                 Dr Gavin Evans (Met Office)

Start date: This studentship is available immediately and needs to
            start by September 2017.

Duration: Four years

Application deadline: Sunday 15 January 2017

Enquiries: Dr Frank Kwasniok (F.Kwasniok@exeter.ac.uk)

**********
Project 2:
"Advanced statistical post-processing of ensemble weather predictions"

This project is one of a number in mathematics at Exeter in competition for funding by the EPSRC Doctoral Training Partnership.

Main supervisor: Dr Frank Kwasniok (University of Exeter)
Co-supervisors:  Dr Chris Ferro (University of Exeter)
                 Dr Gavin Evans (Met Office)

Start date: September 2017

Duration: Three and a half years

Application deadline: Wednesday 11 January 2017
