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.
