Post 1 : Research Scientist in Arctic Climate

 

Job reference: SRF30078

Location: Department of Meteorology, University of Reading, UK

Closing date: 12/09/2019

Salary: £30,395 to £39,609 per annum

Employment type: AR-Research

Department: School of Mathematical Physical & Computational Sciences

Division: National Centre for Atmospheric Science

Hours per week: 1.00 FTE

Employment Basis/Type: Full-time,Fixed-term until 31 October 2020

 

We are seeking to employ a talented researcher to study Arctic climate in the H2020 APPLICATE project. The environment of the Arctic is rapidly changing, impacting on both local and global climate. APPLICATE is a pan-European Horizon 2020 project which aims to develop enhanced predictive capacity for weather and climate in the Arctic and beyond, and to determine the influence of Arctic climate change on Northern Hemisphere mid-latitudes, for the benefit of policy makers, businesses and society.

 

You will be involved in WP3 of APPLICATE (Determining the impact of Arctic climate change on mid latitudes through atmospheric and oceanic linkages). WP3 aims to use climate model experiments to determine the impact of changes in the Arctic on the mid latitudes through atmospheric and oceanic linkages. Effective collaboration with other members of the research team and APPLICATE (http://applicate.eu) will be required.

 

You will have or shortly be expected to achieve:

-        A PhD or equivalent in physical or mathematical sciences
-        Experience of analysing or running climate models
-        Strong scientific computing skills
-        An understanding of physical processes relating to climate

 

The APPLICATE project is currently applying for 6-month extension to the project, and there is the possibility of extending the post by a further 6 months.
