Dear all The following 30-month post is available - start date from January 2019 or thereabouts. Employed by Newcastle University but based at UK Met Office in Exeter within the Understanding Regional Climate Change team of Dr Lizzie Kendon. Faculty/Services Faculty of Science, Agriculture & Engineering Unit Engineering Sub Unit Infrastructure Staff Category Research Contract Type Fixed Term Hours of Work Full Time Location Newcastle upon Tyne Salary: £27,831 - £29,515 per annum (PhD - Near Completion, Assistant Level) £30,395 - £39,610 per annum (PhD - Awarded, Associate Level) Closing Date: 3 October 2018 An exciting research post is now available for a motivated and qualified candidate to develop new insights into climate change impacts on storm-related extreme weather (hail, lightning and windstorms) in the NERC FUTURE-STORMS (Quantifying uncertainties and identifying drivers of future changes in extreme weather from convection-permitting model (CPM) ensembles) project. You will be based at the Met Office Hadley Centre in Exeter in the Understanding Regional Climate Change team. In FUTURE-STORMS, you will work on evaluation using observations and future projections of storm-related weather extremes (wind, hail, and lightning) from state-of-the-art climate simulations at convection-permitting (2.2km) scale. In particular you will exploit new European-wide 2.2km simulations and the first ensemble of climate simulations at convection-permitting scale (from the next set of UK Climate Projections UKCP18) to analyse changes in extreme wind intensity and direction, hail and lightning and compare them to standard resolution models (25km). You will also investigate the probability of compound events where possible and how these compare to observations. You should have a background knowledge in either science, engineering, maths, or geography, or closely related discipline. You should have a PhD (or be near completion) and have previous experience in the analysis of climate model outputs. In addition to having a strong technical background, you will have good interpersonal skills and the ability to combine independent thinking with being part of a multi-disciplinary team. The University holds a silver Athena SWAN award in recognition of our good employment practices for the advancement of gender equality. The University also holds the HR Excellence in Research award for our work to support the career development of our researchers, and is a member of the Euraxess initiative supporting researchers in Europe. This is a full time, fixed term post for the duration of 30 months from start date.
