Research Scientist in understanding monsoon climate change at University of Reading Department of Meteorology / National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS)
We are seeking to employ a talented and creative researcher to study emerging patterns of change in rainfall in monsoon regions around the globe, using the latest climate models contributing to the CMIP6 multi-model database and its associated Model Intercomparison Projects (MIPs). The monsoons supply the majority of rainfall to around two-thirds of the global population (e.g. 80% of annual rainfall in India arises from the summer monsoon), so understanding how monsoons have changed in the past and why and by how much they will change in the future is vital to society. Despite the monsoon’s importance, model simulations are still affected by large biases, affecting our understanding of the physical mechanisms of change. Models also simulate a wide range of possible changes in the future, in part related to uncertainty in aerosol distributions and in modelling the effects of aerosol processes; this affects our confidence in future projections.
You will join the Emergence of Climate Hazards (“EMERGENCE”) project at University of Reading, as part of a larger team led by University of Exeter. The position is available for up to 22 months, to start March 2020 or as soon as possible thereafter.
You will have:
The likely work in the project will encompass:
