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
