Two postdoc jobs on ocean heat uptake and sea level rise

University of Reading, UK

Two three-year positions are being advertised for postdoctoral research associates in the climate programme of the National Centre for Atmospheric Science, Department of Meteorology, University of Reading, UK. They are in two closely related recently funded projects (UKFAFMIP and TICTOC). Both projects are concerned with ocean heat uptake and sea level change as projected by coupled atmosphere-ocean general circulation models (AOGCMs).

Efforts to adapt to or mitigate the problems that will caused by future sea level rise are compromised by uncertainties in projections, arising from the large spread of AOGCM results, in both the global mean and the regional patterns. The aim of the projects is to use new model experiments, diagnostic techniques and observations to understand and constrain the processes and uncertainties in projections of regional sea level change due to ocean climate change.

The posts are advertised at https://jobs.reading.ac.uk/displayjob.aspx?jobid=2127.

More details about the posts can be found there, including further information about the projects.

The closing date for applications is 3rd December, and the university would like the people appointed to take up their posts in the next few months.

Informal inquiries about these posts are welcome:
