Mathematics of Planet Earth Exhibition (Back to Top)

October 24th - November 1st 2015, Imperial’s South Kensington Campus, London, UK.

The MPE CDT has the great pleasure to invite you to the ‘Mathematics of Planet Earth’ Exhibition which will take place in the main entrance of Imperial’s South Kensington Campus, between Saturday 24 October– Sunday 1 November 2015.

Mathematics of Planet Earth is an international exhibition displaying exhibits, videos and computer programs. Collectively these illustrate how mathematics plays a role in answering essential questions that concern our planet. In graphics visualisations and hands-on experiments you will discover the contributions that mathematics makes to topics such as astronomy, fluid dynamics, seismology, glaciology and cartography. The MPE CDT will provide a number of activities and tours available for families and children of all ages.

Within the MPE Exhibition programme, we are also delighted to present a public lecture series, featuring an array of outstanding and fascinating talks. The lectures will take place in the South Kensington Campus, the ICSM building, room 402. The lectures schedule is as follows:

• Friday 23 October at 5pm Talk by Prof Christiane Rousseau on” Mathematics of Planet Earth on Friday ”
• Tuesday 27 October at 5pm talk by Prof Gert-Martin Greuel on “Communicating Mathematics in the 21 Century”
• Thursday 29 October at 5pm talk by Prof Mickael Chekroun

‘Mathematics of Planet Earth’ Exhibition is free to attend so please come along and enjoy what promises to be a great exhibition.

International World Conference on Natural Resource Modeling (Back to Top)

June 14-17, 2016, Flagstaff, Arizona

The International World Conference on Natural Resource Modeling will be held June 14-17, 2016 in Flagstaff, Arizona. The theme is quantitative modeling for managing natural resources in an era of climate change.

Four keynote speakers will address the use of mathematical models to study biodiversity and the effects of climate change on various ecosystems and offer recommendations for managing them in a sustainable manner. The keynote speakers are,

• Hugh Possingham,
• Garciela Ana Canziani,
• Jim Cushing,
• Shandelle M. Henson.

We anticipate some support for students and also offer generous cash prizes for student presentations and posters. A refereed special issue of the journal Natural Resource Modeling will be edited by Catherine A. Roberts.

Opportunity - Senior Research Associate (Back to Top)

Deadline: Monday 12th October 2015

Lancaster Environment Centre, Lancaster University
Salary: £32,277 to £37,394 (Grade 7)
Closing Date: Monday 12th October

We seek to appoint a Senior Research Associate at the Lancaster Environment Centre to contribute to an exciting new NERC-funded project "Quantifying and Reducing Uncertainty in the Processes Controlling Tropospheric Ozone and OH". Current global atmospheric chemistry-climate models are not able to realistically represent the long-term changes in tropospheric composition that are important for determining the impacts of anthropogenic activities on regional air quality or global climate.

This project will apply new statistical approaches and uncertainty analysis to these models, allowing us to quantify the importance of different processes, explain the diversity in model assessments of past and future atmospheric composition change, and attribute observed changes to specific causes. The project involves national and international collaborators and will inform future international assessments of atmospheric composition and climate, such as those of the IPCC.

You should have (or be about to complete) a Ph.D. in atmospheric modelling, applied statistics, or a related quantitative discipline. You should have experience in developing and running numerical models and/or in model emulation and data analysis. Experience evaluating models against complex observational datasets would be an advantage. You will require good communication skills and should be happy working in a cross-disciplinary environment that involves both atmospheric chemistry modelling and statistical methods. You will be expected to present results at national and international meetings and to write up results for publications in leading scientific journals.

This is a fixed term post for up to 36 months starting in October 2015 or at a mutually agreed date. Informal enquiries should be directed to Oliver Wild ([log in to unmask]).
