Research Scientist in East Asian Monsoon Variability, University of Reading
We need a talented scientist to carry out research on the drivers of the East Asian monsoon and hydrological cycle, variations that affect the lives of hundreds of millions of people. This position is part of the DREAM project, funded by the UK government’s BIS UK-China Research and Innovation Partnership Fund through the Newton Fund/Met Office Climate Science for Service Partnership-China (CSSP-China). You will have the opportunity to participate in a broad and novel UK-China collaborative research programme, working closely with scientists at the Met Office and in China.
 
You will identify and understand the drivers of East Asian hydrological variability, with a focus on the summer monsoon, and evaluate their predictability. You will evaluate the ability of weather and climate models to capture these drivers and their impacts, as well as design and analyse model experiments to elucidate the mechanisms underlying the relationships between these drivers and the East Asian hydrological cycle.
 
You will have:
 
A Ph.D. in Mathematics or Physical Science, or equivalent research experience;
Strong scientific analytical ability, independence and self-motivation;
An interest in tropical atmospheric dynamics and monsoon systems;
Strong scientific computer programming skills, including experience of analysing and visualising large and complex scientific datasets, ideally gridded climate datasets.
