UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD DEPARTMENT OF PHYSICS Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Weather and Climate Modelling x2 Grade 7: £31,076 – £38,183 pa Fixed term until 30th September 2021 Applications are invited for 2 Postdoctoral Research Assistants in Weather and Climate Modelling. These posts are available for a fixed-term duration until 30th September 2021. These positions are funded by the European Research Council (ERC), through an Advanced Investigator award, to Professor Tim Palmer for the project ITHACA: “An Information Theoretic Approach to Improving the Reliability of Weather and Climate Simulations”. By identifying those bits that carry negligible information in weather and climate models - typically in high-wavenumber components of the dynamical core and within parametrisations and Earth-System modules – computational resources can be reinvested into areas (such as resolution) where they are needed. The project will contribute to the development of next-generation weather and climate models and ideas will be tested both on emulators and on emerging hardware capable of exploiting the benefits of mixed-precision arithmetic. It is expected that the successful applicant will work closely with scientists from ECMWF, and will make use of the supercomputing facilities there. The successful candidate will use information theory and related ideas to design, develop and test next generation weather and climate forecast systems. Applicants should possess (or be close to obtaining) a doctorate in climate physics, nonlinear dynamics Physics or computer science, and ideally have a strong numerical modelling background. Previous experience in the field of numerical modelling background will be an advantage. The post-holder will have the opportunity to teach. Please direct enquiries about the role to Professor Tim Palmer. Only applications received before midday Friday 2nd June 2017 can be considered. You will be required to upload a brief statement of research interests, CV and details of two referees as part of your online application.
