Title: Post-doc Position (Research Fellow) at the University of Birmingham (UK); Group of Meteorology and Climate
The group of Meteorology and Climate within the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Birmingham is looking for a scientific researcher (full time, fixed term until 31 December 2019) interested in contributing to the group's current research focus on meteorological and climatological extreme events.
Current activities include research on observed and simulated dynamic processes relevant for the generation of extreme events, the analysis of statistical characteristics, diagnostics of global and regional model simulation and the assessment of related impacts.
The working environment includes an excellent network of cooperation within the School, the University of Birmingham, and with national and international scientific and operational institutions.
The position holder will work for the project INPAIS (Integrated Threshold Development for Parametric Insurance Solutions for Guangdong Province China). The project will address scientific and business relevant questions of robust assessments of the frequency-severity distribution of severe, damage prone tropical cyclone systems in the North-West Pacific. Focus is laid on the applicability of these assessments for the further development of parametric insurance solutions. This is a NERC-funded project in collaboration with SwissRe Beijing Branch and the State Key Laboratory for Earth Surface Processes and Resource Ecology (ESPRE) hosted at Beijing Normal University.
The Closing Date is 25 Mar. 2018.
Informal enquiries may be made to Dr Gregor Leckebusch, email@example.com
