We are seeking to employ a talented researcher to study Arctic variability
and predictability, with a focus on seasonal to decadal timescales. There is
a growing need for seasonal-to-decadal timescale climate forecasts to help
inform local communities and industry stakeholders. This project will seek
to better understand the role of natural climate fluctuations in producing
recent Arctic sea ice changes on these timescales, and whether they are

You will be responsible for: (i) analysing global climate simulations,
observations & reanalyses to examine the physical mechanisms of Arctic sea
ice & ocean variability, and (ii) designing, producing & analysing a large
ensemble of simulations to estimate Arctic predictability as part of a wider
European collaboration (APPLICATE). Effective collaboration with other
members of the research team and

APPLICATE ( <http://applicate.eu/> http://applicate.eu) collaborators will
