The European Research Council Starting Grant project

MODES: Modal analysis of atmospheric balance, predictability and climate

announces a PhD position and a post-doc position in dynamical meteorology
to begin on 1 December 2011.

MODES will study atmospheric balance and predictability in terms of energy
associated with the balanced and inertio-gravity motions. The project will
quantify atmospheric balance based on (re)analysis datasets and ensemble
modeling and use the results for the climate model assessment.

Suitable candidates are highly motivated people with a solid background in
physics and mathematics and specialization in meteorology.
The candidate for a post-doc position should have a PhD degree in
atmospheric sciences and he/she is expected to have experience in
programming, in running and analyzing atmospheric models. We are
particularly interested in candidates with degrees in theoretical
meteorology and data assimilation.

Joining MODES offers a unique chance of being a part of an exiting ERC
project with great opportunities for writing top-level publications and
building an international career. The project is hosted by an
internationally successful Faculty of Mathematics and Physics
(http://www.fmf.uni-lj.si, http://meteo.fmf.uni-lj.si) in Ljubljana, one
of "Europe's Most Idyllic Places To Live” (http://www.visitljubljana.si/).
Working conditions and salary are competitive. Further information is
available from Nedjeljka Žagar, nedjeljka.zagar@fmf.uni-lj.si.

The positions are for four years. The application material required
includes curriculum vitae, research statement, publication list and names
and contact details of two-three individuals who may be contacted for
reference letters.

Applications should be sent to Prof. Nedjeljka Žagar
(http://www.fmf.uni-lj.si/~zagarn), nedjeljka.zagar@fmf.uni-lj.si.
Applications will be considered as arriving until the positions are filled.
