Do you want to work in one of the most groundbreaking areas in climate research? Do you have demonstrable expertise in the analysis of climatological data? Apply to join the climate attribution team, led by Dr Friederike Otto.
One of the Grantham Institute’s flagship research projects, led by Dr Otto is the World Weather Attribution (WWA) initiative, a collaboration between climate scientists at Imperial College London, KNMI in the Netherlands and climate impact specialists at the Red Cross / Red Crescent Climate Centre (RCCC), and a large global network of other scientists, that was founded to provide rapid and robust assessments on the role of climate change in the aftermath of an extreme weather event. Its aim is to provide timely scientific evidence to better understand how climate change impacts weather today.
In this role you will work with the WWA team to carry out attribution studies and methodological studies to improve and develop the attribution of extreme weather events.
Duties and responsibilities
You will be a key researcher in the rapid attribution initiative World Weather Attribution and participate in all activities the team undertakes, including research, media and policy engagement.
In addition, you are expected to interact with stakeholders from various sectors, including the funders of this post in the finance sector, but also lawyers, journalists and other relevant groups.
This role is full-time, for three years.

The College believes that the use of animals in research is vital to improve human and animal health and welfare. Animals may only be used in research programmes where their use is shown to be necessary for developing new treatments and making medical advances. Imperial is committed to ensuring that, in cases where this research is deemed essential, all animals in the College’s care are treated with full respect, and that all staff involved with this work show due consideration at every level.
