Forwarded from CLIMLIST...

Applications are invited for one postdoctoral research position at the
Georges Lemaître Center for Earth and Climate Research of the Université
catholique de Louvain (UCL) in Louvain-La-Neuve, Belgium. This position
will be open to a highly motivated scientist for one year. Renewal will
be possible for another period ending at the latest on 31 October 2013,
subject to satisfactory performance. The general project is on modeling
the interglacials of the last one million years, with a special emphasis
on those before 500,000 years BP and on the monsoon systems' behavior.
This research is part of an advanced research grant from the European
Research Council. For project background, see
<http://www.climate.be/modx/index.php?id=84>.

More specific work will be on the atmospheric response to changes in
boundary conditions such as sea surface temperature and ice sheets
during interglacials. Skills in programming and use of climate models
are necessary. In addition, the successful candidate is expected to have
knowledge of atmospheric dynamics and possibly experience with coupled
atmosphere-ocean general circulation models.  He/she will collaborate
with other scientists within and outside the Institute (e.g. other
laboratories using models for paleoclimate simulations) and to present
results in peer-reviewed publications and scientific presentations.

The net salary will be for a postdoctoral position amounting to
approximately two thousand Euros per month depending upon the
qualification and experience. This includes health insurance and is free
of taxes.

Expected date for entry on duty: as soon as possible.

If you are interested in this position, please submit a C.V. along with
contact details of, at least, one professional referee via email to
<berger@astr.ucl.ac.be>.
