Closing date: 12 noon on Friday 10 February 2017
This post is available from 1 March 2017, on a full-time indefinite basis.
UEA’s Climatic Research Unit is widely recognised as one of the world's leading institutions concerned with the study of natural and anthropogenic climate change. The successful candidate will lead cutting-edge research in the international climate community.
Ideal candidates will conduct research and make scientific advances that underpin the development of improved climate services in one or more of these fields: climate observations; climate dynamics and modelling; climate predictions, projections and scenarios; dynamics and statistics of extreme weather/climate events; and quantifying the impacts of climate variability/change to inform the development of adaptation and mitigation policy. A central focus is the use of models and data to better understand changes in climate, its variability and extremes, and how such changes impact society.
As well as the vision and drive to lead the future development of climate research, the successful candidate will be an excellent and enthusiastic teacher with a strong interest in developing and delivering undergraduate and postgraduate teaching in the School of Environmental Sciences, including the MSc in Climate Change.
Applicants will have publications in scientific journals that demonstrate international excellence and world-leading impact, and an established record in attracting research and studentship funding. A PhD (or equivalent qualification) is necessary along with the ability to fulfil all essential elements of the person specification.
