Post-doctoral research associate in regional climate/ocean modelling

Department of Physics, Imperial College London

Salary range: £31,300 - £35,810 per annum (depending on experience)

Full time, fixed term: 2.5 years (initially)

Closing Date: until filled

Starting Date: June 2012 (preferred)

You would join an active and growing group within the Space and Atmospheric Physics group. We are developing a new regional climate model based on coupling of the atmospheric model (WRF) and the regional ocean model system (ROMS). We are interested in a number of understudied regions around the world (e.g the Caspian, West Africa and others) with a unique and exciting set of environmental challenges. There is also an opportunity to work closely with industry which can give further career options.

You must have a PhD in ocean or coastal science. You should have experience with ROMS or other advanced ocean models. Demonstrated skill/proficiency in the following areas is desirable: running complex model codes on high-performance computers, advanced knowledge of numerical modelling, skill in analyzing numerical model output and verification statistics, skill in scientific programming (e.g., Fortran and/or C) and scripting languages such as Perl and/or Python, as well as some skills in graphical display programs such as NCL, Matlab, and/or IDL. Experience processing very large datasets in a variety of formats (e.g., GRIB, netCDF3/4 and HDF4/5) is important.
