The Tyndall Centre within the University of East Anglia is seeking a person skilled both scientifically and technically to deliver projections of climate change impacts at different levels of global warming, using, and further developing, existing computer modelling tools and data. A key aspect of the work will involve simulating climate change impacts including, and excluding, various potential levels of adaptation to climate change. The work is expected to lead to a number of high profile journal publications to which the post holder would be expected to contribute. The post holder will run existing computer codes, post-process the results of simulations run by other team members, and assist with the display of outputs on a web application. Good technical (including basic GIS) and statistical skills are essential, including experience of regression or time series modelling. Ability to program in R, Python or Matlab is desirable. Previous experience of working on the science of climate change or climate change impacts is highly desirable. Ability to work both independently and as a member of team will be important.
