 Two Postdoctoral Research Fellowships


Applications are invited for two post‐doctoral research fellowships on
climate modelling and analysis over central & southern Africa (CSA) as part
of the UK DFID funded project UMFULA (Uncertainty reduction in Models for
development Applications), beginning July 2015. The positions will be based
in the Department of Oceanography at the University of Cape Town, South

We seek energetic and motivated young scientists to join an international
team of researchers working on climate science and applications over
Africa. One appointee will focus on the multi-scale analysis of global and
regional climate model performance over CSA relative to observations, and
the other fellow will focus on regional ocean-atmosphere coupling over the
neighbouring oceanic regions such as the Seychelles-Chagos thermocline
ridge, the Angola-Benguela frontal zone and the Agulhas retroflection that
are known to be important for climate variability and change over CSA.

The tenure of the fellowship is for up to four years, subject to
satisfactory progress each year. The value of the fellowship is about
R300,000 per annum (the exact amount depends on the GBP exchange rate). The
fellowship does not include benefits or travel/relocation costs but there
are some funds for conference expenses.

1. Applicants must have completed their PhD within the last 5 years in
Atmospheric Science, Physical Oceanography or Climate Science or a related
field 2. Demonstrated experience in regional or global climate modelling 3.
Excellent computing and analytical skills

Applications should be sent to chris.reason at uct.ac.za and should include:
1. A comprehensive CV, including names and contact details of three
referees; 2. A letter of motivation outlining research interests; and
