Are you an ambitious researcher with an interest in tropical atmospheric dynamics? Do you have a background in use of atmospheric models to understand processes and inform prediction? Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research intensive universities?
You will investigate the mechanisms responsible for predictability of inter-annual variability in East African rainfall, alongside longer term trends. You will join a large group working on tropical meteorology at the University of Leeds, including researchers working on both GCRF Africa SWIFT and HyCRISTAL.
