[Met-jobs] Post-doc position in physical oceanography, University of Reading

We are looking for a post-doctoral researcher to work on a 3-year NERC-funded project investigating the variability of ocean heat transport and how it influences the sea surface temperature and climate.

Ocean Heat Transport (OHT) changes are not equally important. Some only affect heat content in subsurface without any signature in the upper ocean mixed layer. Others have a direct influence on the latter and
so a quick pathway to influencing climate.

The aim of this work is to investigate what distinguishes these two types of OHT changes and how much of the OHT variability truly has an impact on the surface climate.

To address these questions, the successful applicant will conduct analysis of observation datasets (ARGO, ocean re-analysis) as well as carry out and analyse numerical simulations with a General Circulation Model.

Starting date: flexible but no later than June 30th 2017.

For further details, contact David Ferreira (d.g.ferreira@reading.ac.uk) or Arnaud Czaja (a.czaja@imperial.ac.uk).
