We seek an enthusiastic research scientist to undertake research into 
tropical-extratropical atmospheric teleconnections on sub-seasonal and 
seasonal timescales as part of a wider international project (InterDec) 
on interactions between the tropical and extra-tropical climate system. 
In collaboration with scientists at the European Centre for Medium Range 
Weather Forecasting, you will use re-analysis, and re-forecast sets from 
the ECMWF sub-seasonal and seasonal forecasting systems and the WMO S2S 
Prediction Project and modelling experiments within InterDec to analyse 
the dynamical mechanisms of tropical-extratropical teleconnections. The 
focus will be on tropical sub-seasonal variability as a source of 
predictability for sub-seasonal variability in the extra-tropics and its 
potential rectification onto longer timescales, including relationships 
between the MJO and: the NAO; Sudden Stratospheric Warmings and strong 
stratospheric vortex regimes; and Arctic-sea ice, and their subsequent 
influence on high-latitude tropospheric weather.

You will have:

- A PhD in Atmospheric Science or related field, a Mathematical Science, 
or equivalent research experience

- Strong skills in the analysis and interpretation of complex datasets

- A knowledge of geophysical fluid dynamics

- Good oral and written communication skills
