Faculty of Geosciences, University of Bremen, Germany

The Geosystem Modeling group ( at the Faculty of Geosciences,
University of Bremen, invites applications for a post-doctoral position in the project
"EndLIG" (End of the Last Interglacial). Funded through the DFG Priority Programme SPP 1266
"Integrated Analysis of Interglacial Climate Dynamics (INTERDYNAMIC)", the project aims at
investigating the role of the hydrologic cycle and ocean circulation in Northern Hemisphere
ice-sheet growth at the end of the Last Interglacial. To this end, sensitivity experiments
and long-term transient simulations will be carried out with the latest version of the
comprehensive global climate model CCSM coupled to an ice-sheet model (Glimmer) in a
parallel supercomputing environment. The project is a collaborative effort between the
Faculty of Geosciences and the DFG Research Center / Cluster of Excellence "The Ocean in the
Earth System" (MARUM) at the University of Bremen.

Applicants must have a PhD in atmospheric, ocean or climate sciences.
Experience in numerical climate or ice-sheet modeling and scientific
computation (e.g. UNIX, Fortran) is mandatory. Strong oral and written
English language skills, and a disposition to publish results in
internationally relevant journals are required.

Salary will be according to the German civil service remuneration system
TV-L E13. The appointment is for two years starting January 1st, 2012 or
