The University of Reading is seeking to appoint a motivated Postdoctoral Research Scientist with interests in large-scale atmospheric dynamics to join the ODYSEA project (Ocean Drivers of Seasonal to Decadal European Climate Variability). The postdoc will seek to understand the large-scale atmospheric circulation response to ocean drivers by performing idealised and GCM modelling experiments. The postholder will join a vibrant research community in the University of Reading’s Meteorology Department. There will be excellent opportunities to collaborate strongly with forecast providers (especially the UK Met Office) and partner Universities to explore the implications of their work for improved seasonal and decadal climate forecasting. ODYSEA is part of the wider NERC research programme on “Drivers of Variability in Atmospheric Circulation”.

A talented researcher is needed to undertake a joint modelling and observational approach to understand monsoon processes over India, a topic of fundamental importance to weather and climate in the tropics and worldwide.

As part of the new INCOMPASS (Interaction of Convective Organization and Monsoon Precipitation, Atmosphere, Surface & Sea) programme, jointly funded by NERC and the Indian Ministry of Earth Sciences, you will participate in a unique observational field campaign of surface, upper air and aircraft measurements. You will also work closely with the Met Office, including extended visits, on high resolution modelling case studies to match the observational work.


10th Eumetcal Workshop Joint with ECMWF

Advancing Numerical Weather Prediction Training and Education

15-18 June 2015

We are pleased to announce that the registration and abstract/proposal submission is now open (deadline 30 April 2015) for this workshop.

Numerical Weather Prediction models and products are continually developing in response to societal needs. The workshop aims to bring together the academic, forecasting and training communities to discuss future training needs and solutions.

We will focus on three themes:

• Changes in numerical weather prediction, services and role of forecasters

• Mapping NWP education and training strategies today and tomorrow

• The avant-garde (demonstrations / experimental techniques)
