Research Scientist in Convection and Air-Sea Interactions

University of Reading, Whiteknights Campus, UK
Closing date: 30 April 2019

The university seeks an ambitious researcher to join an international research programme to understand and simulate Maritime Continent convection and its global effects. You will have the opportunity to join a field campaign and run simulations with state-of-the-art weather and climate models.

You will join the TerraMaris project, the UK contribution to the international Years of Maritime Continent (YMC) initiative to improve our understanding and prediction of Maritime Continent weather and climate and its global effects. TerraMaris is a consortium of three UK universities and includes close collaborations with the Met Office and Indonesian operational and research organisations. The project includes a field campaign in Indonesia, which you will have the opportunity to join. You will be responsible for designing, performing and analyzing high-resolution, regional, air-sea coupled simulations over the Maritime Continent, including comparing simulation output to campaign data, as well as global climate simulations to understand the global response to Maritime Continent convection.

You will have:

  • A Ph.D. or equivalent in physical or mathematical sciences
  • Strong skills in scientific programming and analytical and statistical methods
  • An understanding of numerical methods for modelling weather and climate
  • Experience in managing and analyzing large datasets
