Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Climate Physics, University of Oxford, UK
Applications are invited for a full-time position as a Postdoctoral Research Assistant in the Predictability of Weather and Climate group within the sub-Department of Atmospheric, Oceanic and Planetary Physics (AOPP).
The post is available for a fixed-term duration of 36 months.
The post is funded through the Horizon 2020 European Commission project PRIMAVERA. The aim of the project is to “develop a new generation of advanced and well-evaluated high-resolution global climate models, capable of simulating and predicting regional climate with unprecedented fidelity”.
The successful candidate will work on package “Frontiers of Climate Modelling”, and will investigate the use of stochastic parameterisations to represent the variability of unresolved sub-grid scale processes. The candidate will be responsible for the diagnosis and analysis of integrations carried out within the PRIMAVERA project, including the development of original research and analysis strategies, and potential model developments.
Applicants should possess (or be close to obtaining) a doctorate in physics or mathematics and have a strong background in numerical modelling. Previous experience in the field of atmospheric physics will be an advantage.
The postholder will have the opportunity to teach.
Please direct informal enquiries about the role to Professor Tim Palmer (Tim.palmer@physics.ox.ac.uk) or Dr Hannah Christensen (Hannah.Christensen@physics.ox.ac.uk).
Only applications received before 12.00 midday on Friday 30 October 2015 can be considered. You will be required to upload a supporting statement, a brief statement of research interests, a CV, and details of two referees as part of your online application.
