Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant in the Atmospheric Dynamics group at the Physics Sub-Department of Atmospheric, Oceanic and Planetary Physics.

The post is available initially for a fixed-term duration of 12 months.

This position is part of a recently funded Newton Fund CSSP-China project on “Indian and Pacific Ocean decadal variability, climate change and teleconnections”, in collaboration with scientists at the University of Reading.

The successful candidate will analyse decadal variability in the Indo-Pacific ocean region and the influence of this variability on East Asian climate, in particular through teleconnections involving the East Asian jet. In addition, the candidate will be responsible for assessing the ability of decadal prediction systems to capture, and derive skill from, these processes.

Applicants should possess, or be very close to obtaining a doctorate in climate physics or a related field.

Previous experience in the field of atmospheric dynamics and/or ocean-atmosphere interactions will be an advantage.

Candidates are expected to demonstrate excellent communication skills.

The postholder will have the opportunity to teach.

Please direct enquiries about the role to Tim Woollings ( or Christopher O’Reilly (
