We seek a motivated researcher to join the UK Earth system model core 
development team, which has responsibility to develop, apply, evaluate and 
support the use of future generation UK Earth system models (UKESM). The 
applicant will work on the development of novel techniques to exploit satellite 
data in the evaluation and development of the UK’s new Earth system model, 
UKESM1. This is an exciting opportunity to join both the UKESM core team and 
the new NERC-funded UKESM Long Term Science Multi-centre project. UKESM1will be 
a national UK modelling resource and constitutes the UK’s primary contribution 
to the forthcoming 6th Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP6).

This is a scientific post with an initial focus on evaluating biophysical and 
biogeochemical land-atmosphere interactions involving the carbon and water 
cycles.

The successful candidate will have a proven track record in at least two of the 
following areas:

    The quantitative use of Earth Observation data at global scales
    Biophysical processes relevant to land-atmosphere interactions
    Earth system models and/or climate models

They will also have:

    Excellent programming skills, ideally in FORTRAN and Python
    Demonstrable experience of working with large datasets
    Strong verbal and written communication skills

The National Centre for Earth Observation (NCEO) is a distributed centre of 
approximately 100 scientists from UK institutions including the University of 
Reading. This role will form part of NCEO’s commitment to delivering National 
Capability in Earth Observation science to NERC and forms a part of the NCEO 
contribution to the UKESM LTSM project and the UKESM core group.
