Position: Research Scientist (2 Posts)
Institution: University of Reading
Department: Meteorology
Location: Reading, Berkshire, United Kingdom
Duties: We are offering two posts for talented and imaginative research scientists on a new project which aims to set refined constraints on the processes, pattern and magnitude of future anthropogenic climate change, through analysis and improved understanding of forced and unforced variations of the coupled atmosphere–ocean climate system, both simulated and observed. 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, development of conceptual models and theories
Requirements: Strong physical insight and analytical ability. Good facility with relevant statistical and mathematical methods. Good communication skills, both written and oral. Productive relationships with collaborators. Programming in Fortran and in a suitable language for data analysis. PhD in physical or mathematical science. Publication record commensurate with experience. Knowledge of and interest in climate change science, especially atmospheric climate change and feedbacks or ocean climate change and heat uptake. Understanding of essential physics and dynamics of the atmosphere and ocean. Research involving AOGCM or 3D atmosphere or ocean modelling. Computer programming. Analysis of large datasets. Motivated, conscientious and creative. Communicative. Collaborative. Willing to undertake visits
