[Met-jobs] 2 postdoctoral research associate/fellow positions Exeter

We are advertising for 2 postdoctoral researcher positions at the University of Exeter to work on the large NERC consortium project, 'Emergence of Climate Hazards' (EMERGENCE). The positions are available until the end of October 2021. Closing date for applications is 14th February.

The first post will focus on the mid-latitude storm tracks, working in Dr Jennifer Catto’s group at the University of Exeter, with collaborators at Oxford University, Reading University, and Edinburgh University. The exact focus of the research will depend on the interests and expertise of the candidate, but may involve: investigating the impact of high resolution in models on projections of the storm tracks; understanding how warming in different regions impacts the storm tracks; how the storm tracks will impact precipitation extremes in the future. 

The second post will focus on tropical rainfall changes, especially those associated with the El Nino Southern Oscillation. This post will be in Prof Mat Collins’ group and will be co-supervised by Dr Hugo Lambert with collaborators at the Met Office (Rob Chadwick). It will use output from CMIP6, especially those models with high spatial resolution, and develop conceptual models for changes in rainfall that may be used as the basis for developing physical constraints.
