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.

We are seeking to employ a talented researcher to study Arctic climate in the H2020 APPLICATE project. The environment of the Arctic is rapidly changing, impacting on both local and global climate. APPLICATE is a pan-European Horizon 2020 project which aims to develop enhanced predictive capacity for weather and climate in the Arctic and beyond, and to determine the influence of Arctic climate change on Northern Hemisphere mid-latitudes, for the benefit of policy makers, businesses and society.

You will be involved in Work Package 3 of APPLICATE (Determining the impact of Arctic climate change on mid latitudes through atmospheric and oceanic linkages). WP3 aims to use climate model experiments to determine the impact of changes in the Arctic on the mid latitudes through atmospheric and oceanic linkages. Effective collaboration with other members of the research team and APPLICATE ( will be required.

NCAS is looking to appoint to the NCAS Management Board a non-executive director (NED) drawn from the NCAS staff community

In this role, you will provide constructive challenge, thoughtful insight, and independent scrutiny to help the Board achieve its mission to be a world-leading research centre dedicated to the advancement of atmospheric science.
