Dear all,

We are pleased to announce the availability of 3 post-doctoral research scientist positions in the STMULATE project of the Weather & Climate Science for Services Partnership (WCSSP) India.

We are seeking 3 talented and creative researchers to study teleconnections to seasonal variability of the Indian summer monsoon in global climate models of the Met Office and the latest observations.  The monsoon supplies 80% of annual rainfall to India and understanding any variations is vital to society, yet the models used to predict and forecast the monsoon on a variety of time scales suffer from major errors, and the mechanisms connecting modes of climate variability to the monsoon via teleconnections are not well understood.  

You will join the STIMULATE (Seasonal Teleconnections to the Indian Monsoon: Understanding the Large-scale Atmospheric Tropical Environment) consortium project.  STIMULATE is led by the National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS) at University of Reading with University of East Anglia, University of Edinburgh and University of Leeds.

Postdoctoral positions of up to 19 months are available to start in September or as soon as possible thereafter at each of:
  • University of Reading - - in the atmospheric dynamics and mechanisms of teleconnections to the Indian monsoon (closes 25 August);
  • University of Leeds - - in scale interactions governing the local response to teleconnections over India (closes 6 September);
  • University of East Anglia - - in how ocean processes govern seasonal variations of the Indian monsoon (closes 23 August).

You will also collaborate with an existing postdoctoral research scientist at Edinburgh.

Please apply as soon as possible on the links above.

Background on the WCSSP India programme administered at the Met Office can be found at:

Best regards,

Dr Andy Turner, STIMULATE PI [on behalf of Jennifer Fletcher/John Marsham (Leeds), Ben Webber/Manoj Joshi (UEA), Massimo Bollasina (Edinburgh) and Nick Klingaman/Kevin Hodges (Reading)]
