Post-doctoral Research Scientist in tropical cyclones and atmosphere-ocean interactions


Full-time, fixed term post (until 31 January 2019)

Salary: £29,301 to £32,004 per year, depending on experience


University of Reading

School of Mathematical, Physical and Computational Sciences

Department of Meteorology


The “Forecasting Air-Sea Coupled Interactions in Numerical weather prediction for Atmospheric Tropical Extremes” (FASCINATE) project aims to understand and improve predictions of tropical cyclones and related extremes in the West Pacific, to safeguard lives and livelihoods in the Philippines.  We seek a post-doctoral Research Scientist to understand the relationships between West Pacific tropical cyclone activity and large-scale tropical phenomena (e.g., the Madden-Julian Oscillation), assess these relationships in forecast models and investigate whether simulating air-sea coupled feedbacks can improve short-range predictions of tropical cyclone tracks and intensities.  The post-holder will benefit from extensive collaborations with the UK Met Office and the Philippines Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration.
