Researcher in Climate Monitoring Indices & Products
(Fixed term Contract) Changes in Ireland’s climate will impact significantly on society, the economy, and on the natural environment. High quality weather observations are fundamental to our understanding of the climate and are necessary to support climate change adaptation and achieve a climate resilient Ireland. The analysis of past climate data provides valuable information to enable decision makers to assess how the climate has changed, and how it is likely to change in the future. The successful candidate will carry out research on the variability of the Irish climate, focusing in particular on the development of a suite of climate monitoring products and climate change indicators to World Meteorological Organisation standards. This research will produce a suite of products which will be made publicly available and will support decision makers in Irish climate sensitive sectors.
