Postdoctoral Research Assistant (4 Posts) Job Reference : SRF15063 Location : Whiteknights Reading UK Closing Date : 15/01/2017 Live Date : 12/12/2016 Salary : £29,301 to £32,004 per annum Employment Type : AR-Research School / Function : School of Mathematical Physical and Computational Sciences Department : Meteorology Hours Per week : 1.00 FTE Contract Duration : Fixed term - 3 years with possible extension These 4 posts form the core group of scientists in the CUNDA project, together with PI Van Leeuwen. CUNDA (Causal relations Using Nonlinear Data Assimilation) is a 2.6M€ Advanced Investigator project funded by the European Research Council ERC. The team will investigate and develop new methods to infer cause-and-effect (causality) relations, first in low-dimensional systems but pushing to high-dimensional highly nonlinear geophysical systems, in a quantitative Bayesian framework. At the same time efficient fully nonlinear data-assimilation methods for such high dimensional systems need to be developed. These two strands come together by applying the causality inference to a state-of-the-art ocean model in which 25 years of satellite and in-situ observations have been assimilated. The ocean area of interest is the ocean around South Africa, where the Indian, Atlantic, and Southern Ocean meet in a highly turbulent way. We will address some of the major questions in oceanography on the coupling between the wind-driven and thermohaline circulation, and explore causality to understand the highly nonlinear interactions in this area. The projects needs highly motivated excellent researchers with expertise in one or more of the diverse areas of causality, nonlinear data assimilation, physical oceanography and numerical modelling. A part-time programmer will also be part of the project. For more details see https://jobs.reading.ac.uk//displayjob.aspx?jobid=311
