Forwarded from CLIMLIST... A researcher position in ocean modelling and data assimilation is open at Centro Euro-Mediterraneo per i Cambiamenti Climatici (CMCC), Bologna, Italy (<http://www.cmcc.it/>). The position will be part of the CMCC Numerical Application and Scenarios (ANS) Division within the Research Group “Global Ocean and Climate”. The one-year position ranges from post-doc to scientist depending on the candidate profile (<http://www.cmcc.it/about-cmcc/job-opportunities/job-opportunities>) and is renewable up to three years. Work description The new appointee will work to improve and implement a multivariate global ocean data assimilation system to produce multi-decadal global ocean re-analyses making use of all available in situ and satellite data. Estimating the state of the ocean with re-analyses techniques that meld numerical general circulation model information with observations is a primary target both in the context of climate variability assessment and for forecasting purposes such as the initialization of coupled ocean–atmosphere predictions. Our aim is to improve the global ocean assimilation system presently running in our group in order to estimate and describe, as accurately as possible, the past state of the ocean, to understand changes and impacts of human activities on the oceans and provide initial conditions for the CMCC forecasting activities. Academic Background & Qualifications The candidates should have a Ph.D. in Physical Oceanography, Atmospheric Sciences or related disciplines and, preferably, experience in numerical modelling and data assimilation. A knowledge of the NEMO OGCM will be considered a plus. Knowledge of Unix and Fortran is required, and experience with supercomputers would be welcome. Fluency in English is also required. To Apply Applicants should send by electronic mail a cover letter describing areas of expertise and research interests and a comprehensive curriculum vitae including names and addresses of three references to Dr. Simona Masina <email@example.com> Applications are accepted now until the position is filled. -- Simona Masina Ph.D. Centro Euro-Mediterraneo per i Cambiamenti Climatici - CMCC Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia – INGV
