> About the role:
>
> We are seeking a scientist to study the regional sea level projections > with high-end RCP scenarios by 2100. This post is funded by EU project > ‘Responses to coastal climate change: Innovative strategies for high > end scenarios-Adaptation and Mitigation” (RISES-AM). The aim of the > project is to study implications of high-end scenarios (global average > warming >2°C) for coastal areas associated with sea level rise and > changes in extreme sea levels by 2100. This will allow a better > quantification of impacts and vulnerabilities associated with sea > level rise, showing that adaptation is possible at an affordable cost > (compared to risk) and will serve to inform policy and decision > makers, contributing to raise awareness on the multiple dimensions of > possible adaptation pathways.

> As a researcher in the RISES-AM project, you will assemble regional > sea level projections with high end RCP scenarios by 2100. As a part > of your role you will use outputs from CMIP5 model runs to calculate > steric component of sea level rise and examine contribution from > melting of glaciers and ice sheets. Maps of regional sea level changes > will result from regional patterns of mass changes of the ocean from > glaciers and ice sheets and changes in thermal expansion of the ocean > with RCP scenarios. You will write scientific papers and present > findings at project workshops and international scientific conferences >
> This post is offered on NERC terms and conditions and is available > initially for a fixed term of 2 years.
