*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*
