The School of GeoScience, University of Edinburgh invites applications
for a Post-doctoral Research Associate (PDRA) in climate analysis.

We seek an outstanding PDRA to participate in two projects focusing on
causes of climate change. The post arises from multiple funding,
including ERC advanced grant ‘Transition Into the Antropocene’ and a

Prediction of Hiatus and Surge events. The PDRA will be part of a
dynamic UK and international research team comprising project members
from Edinburgh and Oxford University, Leeds University, Reading
University, with collaborators in Europe and the US.
The successful candidate will derive and update constraints on future
warming rate from observed warming attributed to greenhouse gas
increases and more general, human influences, and constraints on future
global increase in precipitation, and its spatial patterns, from
observed precipitation changes.

This post is full time, fixed term until 30th November 2019, with a
possibility of extension. The position will start on 1st April 2017; or
