We are seeking to employ a talented and creative researcher to study detailed land-atmosphere processes for China.  Land-atmosphere interactions are of fundamental importance for understanding and predicting the water cycle in China, home to more than a billion people.


You will join a consortium project led by the NERC Centre for Ecology and Hydrology and funded under the Met Office CSSP-China programme.  You will be responsible for using reanalysis, observational and remote-sensing data to improve the parametrizations of land surface process for China in the JULES land-surface model.  Next you will test new implementations of JULES


You will have:

·      A PhD or equivalent in physical or mathematical sciences

·      Experience of analysing outputs of land-surface model and climate model outputs

·      Strong scientific computing skills, including experience of running experiments in physics-based land surface models and/or GCMs
