Research Associate in Regional Climate Modelling
Space and Atmospheric Group, Department of Physics
Salary scale: £33,410 - £42,380 per annum
South Kensington Campus

Applications are invited for a Research Associate position within the Space and Atmospheric Physics Group. The successful applicant will work with Professor Ralf Toumi and will also contribute to the development of a regional climate model. The post holder will be expected to support the Department’s teaching activities.

You would join an active and growing group within the Space and Atmospheric Physics group. We are developing new regional climate models 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 with a unique and exciting set of environmental science challenges. The position is full- time and available initially for 1 year from January 2015 with the possibility to extend to 3 years.

In this project we are collaborating with several stakeholders to develop coupled atmosphere-ocean models of several regions. Details of the project depend on candidates but could be: the impact of desert dust on the Red Sea; a new model of tropical cyclones and there interactions with ocean; data assimilation for regional forecasting with a coupled model; tracer dispersion in the ocean; marine sound propagation.
It is essential that you have been awarded or submitted a PhD or equivalent level of professional qualifications at the time of appointment in atmosphere, ocean or coastal science. It is also essential that you have proven experience with ROMS or other advanced ocean models. Experience processing very large datasets in a variety of formats is required. 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.

Please send CV with two referees to by 21st September 2014
