Lecturship in Climate Science at UEA

Karen Heywood (ENV)
School of Environmental Sciences, University of East Anglia, Norwich, UK

Lecturer in Climate Science (ATR1369)

£41,212 to £47,722 per annum.
The Faculty of Science at UEA conducts quality interdisciplinary research that has fostered a deservedly excellent international reputation. Within the Faculty, the School of Environmental Sciences is one of the largest and longest established academic departments in Europe to focus on the study of the global environment, ranking 1st for impact in the REF 2014.

The School houses the Climatic Research Unit, one of the most renowned centres for research into past and future climate change, its causes and its impacts. The successful candidate for this new Lectureship will develop an innovative and internationally recognised research programme, making an important contribution to the Climatic Research Unit.

Candidates will have developed strong expertise in an area of climate research and will be excited by the opportunity to develop their research interests in the rich interdisciplinary environment the School offers. 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. 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

With a keen interest in developing excellent teaching the post holder will also contribute to advanced level teaching in Climate Change, as well as classroom and practical teaching for the School’s BSc programmes in Environmental Sciences, Meteorology & Oceanography, Geography and Climate Change.

Applicants must have a PhD in Climate Science or a closely allied and appropriate subject and fulfil all essential elements of the person specification. 

This post is available immediately, on a full-time indefinite basis.  

We welcome applicants from all protected groups as defined by the Equality Act 2010 and, in particular, those from Black or other minority ethnic backgrounds. 

Closing date: Friday 13 October 2017

The University is a Bronze Athena Swan Award holder, currently working towards Silver.
