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.
