The University is developing strategic activities which bring together its areas of strength across environmental research. We seek a new post in CAS to develop an integrated modelling component which links our current work to current and future integrated research challenges in atmospheric science and in areas where atmospheric science makes a strong contribution to wider goals - such as climate change, extreme weather, water availability, air quality and human health and food security. We aim to recruit a strong candidate with research experience and a strong track record of publication in large scale physical or earth system modelling of the atmosphere which can interface with CAS’ current research themes and link effectively across the faculty.
You will supervise PhD students and contribute to Undergraduate and Postgraduate teaching in a range of programmes which require atmospheric science input. You will offer teaching through a variety of means including lectures, practical’s, field courses, tutorials and eLearning.
You must have at least a first degree and a PhD (or equivalent experience) in a relevant subject; a track record of publications in leading scientific journals and experience in a comparable research environment.
The post is full-time and available from 1 October 2017.
The post is permanent subject to a successful probation period.
As an equal opportunities employer we welcome applicants from all sections of the community regardless of gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation and transgender status. All appointments are made on merit.
