Research Fellow in Climate Information for Adaptation
Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge? Do you have a background in climate science or philosophy of science? Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research intensive Universities?
This position is supported by the Economic and Social Research Council’s (ESRC’s) Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy (CCCEP), which is co-hosted by the University of Leeds and the London School of Economics (LSE). This post is based in Leeds and will involve close collaboration with LSE. The focus of the postdoctoral research project will be to develop a framework to investigate the quality of climate information for adaptation and empirically test it in at least one case study.
Regional and local climate information can potentially help society adapt to a changing climate, but despite significant progress in climate science – there is now a wealth of climate information drawn from multiple methods, models and generations of models – fundamental questions about the quality of climate information for adaptation remain unanswered. This project will develop a quality assessment framework drawing from and building on research in climate modelling, uncertainty analysis, philosophy of science, environmental modelling and associated fields.
As part of this project, you will be expected to conduct original research, resulting in academic publications as well as communication to broader audiences. You will be part of a larger research group led by Professor Suraje Dessai, and work collaboratively with Professor David Stainforth (LSE). There will also be opportunities to contribute to wider research and teaching initiatives across the School and Faculty.
