Dear colleagues,

The Department of Meteorology at the University of Reading is advertising for a talented post-doctoral research scientist in numerical modelling of the Arctic sea ice and polar climate. This is a fixed-term position for up to 2.5 years.

The strong decline of Arctic sea ice in recent decades is a conspicuous indicator of climate change, that impacts the Arctic environment, the insurance, shipping and oil industries, local populations, and remote weather. Observations show that the Marginal Ice Zone (MIZ), a region of low ice area concentration consisting of a disperse collection of small sea ice floes, has grown. Model projections indicate a growth of the MIZ from around 10% (now) to 80% of the summer sea ice cover by 2050. The project will quantify the impact of the emerging dominance of the MIZ on the Arctic physical climate using numerical models of sea ice, ocean, and climate.

Best wishes,

Danny.
