Hi met-jobs,

Research Scientist in historical temperature reconstructions with citizen science

(Fixed term up to 3 years)

Details and how to apply: https://jobs.reading.ac.uk/displayjob.aspx?jobid=5247

We seek an ambitious researcher to lead a citizen science project (WeatherRescue.org) to recover millions of undigitized historical weather observations and to analyse and compare the rescued observations with other data sources.

This post is based at the UK National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS) at the University of Reading and is part of a NERC-funded UK-wide consortium called GloSAT. The overarching objective of GloSAT is to develop and analyse an extended and consistent global surface temperature climate record back to the 1780s, based on air temperatures across land, ocean and ice.

You will have:

  • A PhD or equivalent experience in a quantitative physical science, computer science, engineering or mathematics
  • The ability to write and adapt computer programmes
  • Strong analytical and problem solving skills
  • The ability to interact constructively and proactively with collaborators, attending national and international conferences
  • Experience in giving oral presentations and writing scientific papers

Experience analysing historical weather observations or with citizen science projects is not essential but would be an advantage.

Many thanks,

Ed.
