Scientific-technical position in the area of
Regional Climate Research

at the

Wegener Center for Climate and Global Change, University of Graz

The Wegener Center for Climate and Global Change (WEGC,
<www.wegcenter.at>) is an interdisciplinary, internationally oriented
research center of the University of Graz, which combines the
competences of the University in the research areas "Climate,
Environmental, and Global Change". The center brings together, in a
building close to the University central campus, research teams from
fields such as climate physics, meteorology, economics, geography, and
regional sciences. The research areas include monitoring, analysing,
modeling, and projecting climate and environmental change, climate
impact research, and the analysis of the human dimensions of these changes.

WEGC's Research Group for Regional and Local Climate Modelling and
Analysis (ReLoClim) focuses on the analysis of the regional climate
system (with focus on the European Alps, but other regions are
investigated as well), dynamical regional climate modeling,
empirical-statistical downscaling and model error correction,
uncertainty estimation, and the development of user-tailored climate
scenarios for climate change impact research.

The ReLoClim Group is searching for a dynamic new member with
scientific-technical orientation to strengthen the highly motivated
team. The field of work includes:

- Implementation and improvement of methods for regionalisation and
statistical analysis of climate simulations and observational data.

- Support of and contribution to scientific studies and publications.

- Development of “user tailored” climate scenarios for climate change
impact research.



Qualifications:

- Degree (MSc. or PhD. level) in technical or natural sciences (e.g.
meteorology, geophysics, physics, geography, mathematics, computer
sciences).

- Experience in programming (relevant areas: Unix/Linux, Fortran, R,
IDL, Python; notably important are Unix/Linux and experience in
programming).

- Experience and interest in atmospheric sciences and statistics.

- Analytical orientation, independent work style, organizing ability.

- Ability to work in a team, good command of English.



Duration: a 3-years contract with option for extension by another 3
years; full-time (40 hours per week); job can be filled with October 2011.
