We currently have the following research vacancy advertised:
Applications are invited for an enthusiastic Postdoctoral Research Assistant to work in the newly emerging area of extreme weather event attribution and seasonal forecasts at Department of Physics, sub-department of Atmospheric, Oceanic and Planetary Physics, at the University of Oxford.
The post is available as soon as possible for a fixed-term duration of 24 months.
This project will be part of the EUCLEIA (European Climate and weather events: Interpretation and Attribution) project funded by the European Commission under their Framework Programme 7 which aims at developing an attribution system for weather extremes, that is attributing natural and anthropogenic forcings for extreme weather and climate events.
Applicants should possess or be very close to obtaining a doctorate in a physical, mathematical or climate-related science and ideally a strong background in atmospheric physics. Previous experiences in the field of attribution science and numerical modelling of weather or climate will be an advantage.
The post-holder will have the opportunity to teach.
