The Climate Variability and Predictability Group (SERC Division) at the Centro Euro-Mediterraneo per i Cambiamenti Climatici (CMCC), in Bologna (Italy) invites applications for a position in climate dynamics and modeling. The 2-year position ranges from post-doc to junior scientist depending on the candidate profile (http://www.cmcc.it/about-cmcc/job-opportunities/job-opportunities), and will be based at the Centro Euro-Mediterraneo per i Cambiamenti Climatici in Bologna (Italy). Work description: The successful candidate will be involved in the investigation of the physical mechanisms underlying the predictability of the global climate system, with a specific focus on the decadal and inter-decadal time range, using data from the CMCC-CM coupled model and other state-of-the-art climate models. In particular, the role played by several components of the climate system, including ocean circulation, sea-ice and land surface, on the predictive skill of climate models will be analysed. Novel methodologies to improve the skill of decadal predictions through appropriate initialization strategies will also be explored. Academic background and skills required: The ideal candidate should hold a Ph.D. in ocean, atmosphere or climate sciences, or a related field. Experience with climate models is required. Knowledge of statistical tools for climate variability analysis is also desirable. Application: Applications are accepted now until the position is filled. For full consideration, please send a cover letter describing areas of expertise and research interests, a curriculum vitae with a list of publications, and the name and contact information of two references to Alessio Bellucci (firstname.lastname@example.org). Selection and attribution criteria: Candidates? curriculum vitae with emphasis on prior experience with similar issues (climate variability and predictability). Programming skills (Fortran, Matlab/Grads, CDO/NCO or equivalent tools) will be taken in high consideration, but major emphasis will be placed on scientific independence, creativity and originality.
