Forwarded from CLIMLIST... Two research scientist positions are available in the Climate Division, Meteorology and Climate Department at the Norwegian Meteorological Institute, Oslo, Norway. One position will focus on spatial climatological analysis, the other on extreme value analysis. The Meteorology and Climate Department has the operational responsibility for the weather forecasting, climate and observation services at met.no. The Climate Division shall provide high quality climate data and climate information to the user community. Climate analysis based on homogeneous time series and spatio-temporal modeling shall give a background for climate products and services needed by the society. Good understanding of and knowledge about the present and past climate is an essential basis for describing the future climate. The division is responsible for the content and quality of the met.no climate databases and distribution systems for climate data and information. The division has currently 19 staff members organized in two sections and an administrative staff. The position on spatial analysis is vacant in Section for climate data and spatial analysis. The section has 11 staff members. The section is responsible for assuring the quality of climate data and climate data products and for developing methodology and systems for provision of a high resolution description of the Norwegian climate. To assist in these tasks, we are looking for a researcher who will have main scientific focus within spatial analysis and spatial interpolation of climate data. The position on extreme value analysis is vacant in Section for climate information. The section has 7 staff members and is responsible for preparation and dissemination of climate information. It also carries out research to improve the knowledge of the climate in Norway. Information about design values is a demand within many disciplines for both the current and future climate. Possible changes in future climate are of great importance for the planning of sustainable infrastructure. Probability values, based on meteorological data, obtained as gridded data, can also be developed into a useful tool to assess prediction of extreme weather. To assist in these tasks, we seek a researcher who will have a scientific focus on statistical extreme value analysis of climate data. For complete descriptions of the vacant positions, including more details of possible work tasks, working conditions, contact information and information about the application procedure please visit <http://met.no/English/Vacant_positions/>.
