*Chair in Climate Science, School of Environmental Sciences, University 
of East Anglia*


The Climatic Research Unit is widely recognised as one of the world's 
leading institutions concerned with the study of natural and 
anthropogenic climate change.  As an internationally recognised research 
leader in Climate Science based within the Climatic Research Unit within 
the School of Environmental Sciences, the successful candidate will lead 
cutting-edge research in the international climate community.

We are interested in candidates who will conduct research and make 
scientific advances that underpin the development of improved climate 
services in one or more of these fields: climate observations; climate 
dynamics and modelling; climate predictions, projections and scenarios; 
dynamics and statistics of extreme weather/climate events; and 
quantifying the impacts of climate variability/change to inform the 
development of adaptation and mitigation policy.  A central focus is the 
use of models and data to better understand changes in climate, its 
variability and extremes, and how such changes impact society.

As well as the vision and drive to lead the future development of 
climate research, the successful candidate will be an excellent and 
enthusiastic teacher with a strong interest in developing and delivering 
undergraduate and postgraduate teaching in the School of Environmental 
Sciences, including the MSc in Climate Change.

Applicants will have publications in scientific journals that 
demonstrate international excellence and world-leading impact, and an 
established record in attracting research and studentship funding. A PhD 
(or equivalent qualification) is necessary along with the ability to 
fulfil all essential elements of the person specification.

This post is available from 1 March 2017, on a full-time indefinite basis.

We particularly welcome applications from suitably qualified female 
academics as they are currently under-represented in senior positions 
within the School.

*Closing date: 12 noon on Friday 10 February 2017*
