We are seeking to employ a post-doctoral Research Scientist for the European Eddy-Rich Earth System Models (EERIE) project, funded by Horizon Europe, and, for UK partners, by UKRI. The post holder will be joining the Global High Resolution Climate Modelling (HRCM) programme, a key aspect of strategic research developed at the National Centre for Atmospheric Science in Reading and at the Met Office Hadley Centre.
The focus of the post is the analysis of multi-model centennial simulations in project EERIE, with the objective of discovering and characterising emergent processes and mechanisms, in both the atmosphere and ocean, in terms of mesoscale exchanges, transports and interactions, and how these in turn govern climate system variability, from synoptic scales all the way to multi-decadal.
The project will involve close collaboration with major research centres across Europe (CNRS in France, AWI, DKRZ and MPI in Germany, BSC in Spain, Met Office and ECMWF in the UK), as well as leading research groups (Brest, Louvain, ETHZ, Oxford, Reading) and within the National Centre for Atmospheric Science in the UK. The post holder will work very closely with the Met Office, with the National Oceanographic Centre, as well as with project partners at ECMWF.
Multiple collaborative opportunities are offered at the international level: HRCM lead scientists are involved in world-leading programmes (e.g. WCRP Digital Earths, EU Horizon 2020, EU Horizon Europe) and engage internationally in the co-design of modelling systems that span conceptual models, all the way to state-of-the-art numerical models.
