Global Air Quality; Management & Science MSc at King’s College London
The World Health Organisation estimated that air pollution was associated with 7 million premature deaths worldwide in 2012. This finding more than doubles the previous estimate and confirms that air pollution is now the world’s largest single environmental health risk. The MSc in Global Air Quality; Management & Science enables you to gain a detailed knowledge and understanding of the contemporary theory and practice of air quality and its management.
Duration and Intake: 1 year FT/September
Location: Waterloo Campus
Entry Requirements: Degree - minimum upper second (2.1) or equivalent in a relevant science subject, biosciences or medicine.
Job Opportunity: NCAS Research Scientist at the University of Reading
Closing date: 4 March 2016
Full time, fixed term until 30th June 2018
The University of Reading requires a talented scientist to carry out research on the drivers and mechanisms of variability and change in East Asian climate as part of two projects (LOTUS: Long Term Undulation versus secular change in Chinese Climate and DYVA: Global Dynamics of climate Variability and impacts on East Asia) which are funded through the Met Office led Climate Science for Service Partnership: China (CSSP China), supported by the Newton Fund.
You will analyse observations and conduct numerical climate model experiments to improve scientific understanding of the drivers and mechanisms that govern changes in drought and extreme temperatures over China, with a particular focus on the role of anthropogenic greenhouse gases, aerosols, and variability in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.
You will have:
- A PhD in physical or mathematical science
- Strong scientific analytical ability, creativity and self-motivation
- Interest in the role of the oceans and anthropogenic forcing in climate and climate prediction
- Experience in computer programming, data analysis and numerical modelling
