Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Climate Modelling. This project will investigate the impact of explosive volcanic eruptions on the Atlantic Climate System.
The successful candidate will carry out a programme of research to analyse climate model simulations of the impact of explosive volcanic eruptions on the coupled ocean- atmosphere climate system.
Applicants should possess, or be very close to completing, a doctorate in physics or a related field and ideally a strong background in climate dynamics. Previous experience in the analysis of the dynamical response to explosive volcanic eruptions in climate models will be an advantage.
Candidates are expected to demonstrate good analytical skills and evidence of computing skills required for the handling and analysis of large climate datasets, the ability to work with self-motivation, enthusiasm and innovation and the ability to work as part of a team, with good communications, planning and organisational skills
The postholder will have the opportunity to teach.
Please direct enquiries about the role to Professor Lesley Gray (firstname.lastname@example.org).
You will be required to upload a brief statement of research interests, CV and details of two referees as part of your online application.
Only applications received before 12.00 midday on 26 June 2019 can be considered.
