Hi all,

The University of Bristol is looking to appoint a Paleoclimate Modeller for Super-Warm Climates, Research Associate or Senior Research Associate.


In order to predict the sociological, environmental, and economic impacts of future climate change, an essential tool is climate modelling.  However, our state-of-the-art climate models are almost never tested under the high CO2, super-warm climate conditions to which they are primarily applied, and upon which major policy decisions are made.


However, there exist time periods in Earth's deep past (for example the Eocene, about 50 million years ago) when CO2 concentrations were similar to those expected by the end of this century.  The SWEET project, of which this postdoc position forms an important part, presents an exciting opportunity to provide a much-needed evaluation of our very latest climate models in a super-warm world, using novel climate modelling.
