  国利兹大学热带气象学博士后招聘

  Job Description

  Do you have a background in tropical meteorology, dynamical meteorology, weather forecasting, convection, climate and weather model evaluation, or a related field?  Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research intensive Universities and gain teaching experience in an international context?

  An exciting opportunity has arisen for a postdoctoral researcher to investigate the influence of model resolution and coupling on the development and prediction of extreme weather and its impacts over India, as part of the Coupled Air-Sea Prediction of Extreme Rainfall (CASPER) project, part of Weather and Climate Science for Service Partnership (WCSSP) Southeast Asia. CASPER is a collaborative project between the University of Leeds, the University of Reading and the Centre for Hydrology and Ecology (CEH) funded through the Met Office Newton Fund, and is led by the University of Reading. The project’s institutional lead at Leeds is Juliane Schwendike, working with co-investigators Cathryn Birch and Simon Peatman.

  As part of this project you will investigate the representation of high-impact weather events over India and the surrounding ocean in a numerical weather prediction model.  In particular, you will demonstrate the potential added value of the inclusion of atmosphere-ocean and atmosphere-land interactions, and of convection-permitting atmospheric and eddy-resolving oceanic horizontal resolutions. You will investigate case studies of monsoon depressions and tropical cyclones which develop over the Bay of Bengal before making landfall in South Asia. You will analyse the storms’ horizontal and vertical structure, including how they evolve as they make landfall.  You will evaluate forecasts against observations, and determine the effects of atmosphere-ocean and atmosphere-land coupling, as well as atmospheric and oceanic horizontal resolutions, on predictions of storm dynamics.

  You will join one of the most research-active universities for atmospheric science in the UK (Leeds is rated 7th in the world in the Shanghai global rankings for atmospheric science, and 1st in the UK). Within the Institute for Climate and Atmospheric Science (ICAS), you will join a large group of tropical meteorologists and dynamicists, who together have an outstanding track record on India, the tropics and convection. Together with the opportunity to work with world-leading scientists at the University of Reading, CEH, the Met Office and in India, this provides an excellent opportunity for an individual with a long-term interest in this field.

  You will have a PhD (or close to obtaining) in a quantitative physical science, such as physics, applied mathematics or meteorology, and have experience in dynamical or tropical meteorology. You will be experienced in the analysis of large observational and/or numerical model datasets using a programming language such as NCL or Python, have excellent written and oral communication skills, and a willingness to travel to India to attend project meetings.
