Join a highly-regarded team of computational scientists to help deliver world-leading climate and Earth-System science. Work with state-of-the-art data analysis codes and on the infrastructure that supports the global climate change research effort.

NCAS-CMS (http://cms.ncas.ac.uk) provides computational modelling services to the UK Climate and Weather research communities, spanning all areas of the modelling workflow from computational resource allocation and management, to running complex climate simulations, to handling data storage and analysis. We develop software in-house and are responsible for installing and maintaining world-leading climate modelling systems on the UK’s most powerful high-performance computers.

The post holder will join NCAS-CMS to work developing and optimising software libraries used for data analysis and metadata archiving, and developing community standards in support of international climate modelling efforts for which NCAS-CMS is a major contributor.

The H2020 IS-ENES3 European infrastructure project (https://is.enes.org) is recruiting for the post of ENES Scientific Officer. They will provide scientific assistance to the Project Coordinator and Project Scientist for the European project. The position is based at the University of Reading for up to 37 months.

Please see further details and a link for application at:

Closure of applications on 18th October 2019 and interviews on 25th October.

Do you have a background in meteorology, applied mathematics, physics or a related field? Would you like to be part of a large international project that aims to understand the behaviour of low clouds and their role in climate?

We seek an ambitious scientist with interests in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics to contribute to a programme of original research into the dynamics of cumulus clouds, integrating into the UK-wide project on Representation of Convection in models (ParaCon) and the international project on Elucidating the role of clouds-circulation coupling in climate (EUREC4A). ParaCon aims to provide new physical insight on convection to improve the representation of convection in models across scales and EUREC4A focusses specifically on tradewind cumulus clouds as these are a key uncertainty in current model predictions of climate sensitivity. 

We are seeking to employ a talented researcher to study European storms in the WINDSURFER project. WINDSURFER is bringing together eight leading research institutions across Europe to co-develop new methods, tools and assessments of extreme wind and wave risk with a focus on the Insurance, Forestry and Energy sectors. The position will be involved in WP2 and WP3 of WINDSURFER, and in particular the evaluation and assessment of the impact of climate change on European storminess in the CMIP6 climate models. Effective collaboration with other partners within WINDSURFER will be required.
