Dear colleagues,

A new post-doctoral research scientist position is available in the Coupled Air-Sea Prediction of Extreme Rainfall (CASPER) project, part of Weather and Climate Science for Service Partnership (WCSSP) India. CASPER is a collaborative project between the University of Leeds, the University of Reading and the Centre for Hydrology and Ecology (CEH) funded through the Met Office Newton Fund, and is led by the University of Reading. 

We are seeking a talented and creative researcher to study the representation of high-impact weather events over India and the surrounding ocean in a numerical weather prediction model.  In particular, you will demonstrate the potential added value of the inclusion of atmosphere-ocean and atmosphere-land interactions, and of convection-permitting atmospheric and eddy-resolving oceanic horizontal resolutions. You will investigate case studies of monsoon depressions and tropical cyclones which develop over the Bay of Bengal before making landfall in South Asia. You will analyse the storms’ horizontal and vertical structure, including how they evolve as they make landfall.  You will evaluate forecasts against observations, and determine the effects of atmosphere-ocean and atmosphere-land coupling, as well as atmospheric and oceanic horizontal resolutions, on predictions of storm dynamics.

The position is available as soon as possible until until 31 March 2021. Please apply on the link below.

Kind regards,
