We are offering a post for a talented and imaginative research scientist on a project which aims to reduce uncertainty in projections of anthropogenic climate change, through understanding of forced and unforced variations in the coupled atmosphere-ocean climate system, especially the interactions between climate feedback, ocean heat uptake and the spatiotemporal patterns of climate change. The work may involve analyses of results from the latest generation of global atmosphere-ocean climate models and comparable observational datasets, complementary and novel model experiments, and development of conceptual models and theories. The post is for three years. The post-holder will be a member of a small group working with the principal investigator, as a member of staff of National Centre for Atmospheric Science, sited in the Department of Meteorology (at present temporarily working at home, because of COVID-19 restrictions).

The project is funded by an Advanced Grant from the European Research Council.

Essential criteria include:

  • PhD in mathematical or physical science
  • Strong physical insight, analytical ability, creativity and self-motivation
  • Knowledge of and interest in climate change science
  • Research experience involving GCM modelling and analysis of large datasets

Interviews will be held on 27 July 2020
