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 Full details can be found at https://jobs.leeds.ac.uk/vacancy.aspx?ref=ENVEE1382 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.
