Research Fellow in Constraining Uncertainty of Multi Decadal
Climate Projections - CONSTRAIN, Faculty of Environment, University of Leeds

Salary: Grade 7 (£33,797 – £40,322 p.a.)
Reference: ENVEE1382
Closing date: 23 February 2020
Fixed-term until 30 June 2023 due to external funding

A postdoctoral position is now available within a team of climate scientists at 
the University of Leeds, working on an EU Horizon 2020 funded project 
(Constraining uncertainty of multi decadal climate projections - CONSTRAIN). 

Working with Prof Piers Forster and Dr Amanda Maycock, the post will 
investigate the mechanisms affecting radiative forcing (by aerosols, greenhouse 
gases, volcanoes) and further develop the Finite amplitude Impulse Response 
(FaIR) physically based emulator of complex climate models.

A key goal of CONSTRAIN is to identify physical constraints on the climate 
response to forcing and apply these to future projections. A significant part 
of the project will involve knowledge translation to make the latest climate 
science accessible to mitigation and adaptation decision makers. The research 
at Leeds will play the central role as part of a large consortium project in 
collaboration with 13 other leading institutions across Europe.

Applicants should have a PhD (or close to completion) in Atmospheric, Ocean or 
Climate Science or a closely allied discipline; extensive experience of using 
models and observations to study climate processes; knowledge of radiative 
forcing and climate feedbacks; and experience communicating your science to 
policy makers; and evidence of a strong commitment to publishing scientific 
results at an international level and also of writing for a broader audience.  
Experience of developing simple climate models and skills in statistical 
analyses are desirable.
