>>The School of Earth and Environment is seeking to expand its
>>research in a
>>number of areas in order to link existing strengths and to allow us to
>>tackle some of the major questions concerning climate change and
>>anthropogenic influences on the environment:
>>1. Climate Change Modelling: The post offers the opportunity for an
>>ambitious scientist to develop a climate and Earth system modelling
>>programme embedded in a school with a world class reputation in
>>and process models. It is envisaged that the appointed member of
>>staff will
>>develop an internationally leading climate modelling group that is
>>complementary to the areas of expertise in the school's Institute for
>>Atmospheric Sciences. These areas include atmospheric composition;
>>clouds and precipitation; or related surface processes, as well as the
>>climate of palaeoenvironments. The post also offers exciting
>>to address issues of local and regional adaptation to climate and
>>environmental change (with staff in the School's Sustainability
>>Institute) as well as global carbon cycling and climate-biosphere
>>interactions (with the School of Geography).
>>3. Earth observation and remote sensing: The School seeks to expand
>>its base
>>in satellite-based remote sensing, and particularly encourages
>>from those who will bring expertise in satellite remote sensing
>>that is
>>complementary to one or more of our research strengths.
>>These include atmospheric composition, aerosols, clouds and
>>atmospheric dynamics, climate change, or related surface processes.
>>We seek
>>to develop the use of Earth observation data to advance our
>>understanding of
>>climate processes and their global impacts. Leeds is uniquely
>>placed to
>>exploit the potential of remote sensing because of the wide range
>>of models
>>that we have available to interpret the climate data.
>>Investment in remote sensing and global Earth observation will be
>>increasingly important as the School expands its research into
>>large scale
>>climate processes and global modelling as part of this strategic
>>Posts are also offered as part of the initiative in Geobilogy and
>>Socio-economic impacts of climate change. Details can be found from
