Job Opportunity: Research Scientist

Location: Whiteknights, University of Reading
Salary: £31,406 – £40,9279 p.a. pro rata
Contract length: Fixed Term
Contract type: Full Time
Closing date: Friday 8 July 2022

We are seeking a post-doctoral Research Scientist for the High Resolution Global Climate Modelling (HRCM) core programme, a key aspect of strategic research developed at the National Centre for Atmospheric Science in Reading. We will develop and exploit advanced, convection-permitting (sub-10km) global configurations of the next-generation, LFRic Met Office Hadley Centre climate model, suitable for investigation of scale interactions in the climate system.

You will have:

  • Substantial experience in developing, operating and assessing high-resolution atmospheric GCMs (or large domain RCMs), ideally in the convection-permitting (CP) range of resolutions
  • A strong interest, and experience, in the investigation and understanding of processes that underpin the evolution of weather and climate, particularly originating at the mesoscale.
  • Proven analytical capabilities, including the ability to effectively analyse large data
  • Willingness and ability to engage with the international community on the grand challenge of developing global weather and climate models at 1km.
