The National Centre for Atmospheric Science at the University of Reading is seeking to employ a talented and creative researcher to evaluate and analyse new datasets of observations which provide an opportunity for improved estimates of risk, on timescales of days to decades, relating to tropical cyclones in developing countries. Tropical cyclones expose vulnerable populations to multiple hazards, including storm surges, intense precipitation and high winds, so early warnings of likely landfall position and strength of hydrometeorological hazards is key to mitigating the effects.

You will have:

•  Strong scientific programming skills

•  A PhD in a numerate discipline or equivalent professional experience

•  An understanding of climate science and a strong understanding of numerical methods

•  Experience in handling large datasets
