Forwarded from CLIMLIST... The Leibniz Institute of Marine Sciences (IFM-GEOMAR) is offering a Postdoctoral Position in the international project „PLEIADES“. We seek a highly motivated researcher to improve our understanding of and our capability to predict regional changes in precipitation extremes. Based on modern multi-variate extreme value statistics the candidate will develop a probabilistic approach to correct biases in precipitation simulated by regional and global climate models, in particular in extreme precipitation. The work will ultimately provide improved regional precipitation scenarios for Europe for the 21st century as well as regional decadal predictions. The postdoc will work with Prof. Douglas Maraun and closely collaborate with the project partners Dr. Mathieu Vrac at the LSCE in Gif Sur Yvette close to Paris and a second postdoc supervised by Dr. Martin Widmann at the University of Birmingham. Longer stays at both institutes are an integral part of the project. The successful candidate will have a PhD in a quantitative science, preferably in an area related to meteorology, climate or hydrology with strong statistical and computing skills or vice versa. The post is funded by the Volkswagen Foundation and is for 30 months from 1 June 2011. The salary will be according to TV-L 13 of the German tariff for public employees. The Leibniz-Institute of Marine Sciences is an equal opportunity employer and encourages female scientists and scientists with disabilities to apply. Closing date is 22 April 2011, but applications will be considered until the position is filled. Please send your appication including a letter of motivation, your CV, and a list of publications as a single pdf to Douglas Maraun (email@example.com). Do not hesitate to contact Douglas Maraun (<firstname.lastname@example.org>) for informal inquiries. The IFM-GEOMAR is one of the leading institutions in marine sciences in Europe and employs more than 750 scientific and technical staff. Its research spans all relevant aspects of modern marine sciences, from sea floor geology to marine meteorology. For more information see www.ifm-geomar.de. Kiel is the capital of the northern German state of Schleswig-Holstein, with a population of 240,000. Situated at the Baltic Sea the city is known for the Kiel Week, the biggest sailing event in the world, when 2,000 ships and three million visitors come to the Kiel fjord every year in early summer. Kiel also features cinemas, museums, theatres and an opera. -- Douglas Maraun Professor for Marine Meteorology Leibniz Institute of Marine Sciences at the University of Kiel
