Post-doc research position in global ocean forecasting and data assimilation at CMCC Bologna


A post-doc research position in global ocean forecasting and data assimilation is available at Centro Euro-Mediterraneo per i Cambiamenti Climatici (CMCC), Bologna, Italy.  The position will be part of the CMCC Numerical Application and Scenarios (ANS) Division within the Research Group “Ocean Forecasting”.

Starting date and length of contract
Applications are accepted now until the position is filled and start may be within one-two months after acceptance. The position is one-year renewable for two more years.

The CMCC, Via Aldo Moro 44, Bologna, Italy.

Working environment
The CMCC is a non-profit organization for research and applications in the field of climate change ( It is located in Lecce (headquarters), Bologna, Venice, Capua, Sassari, Milan and Benevento. The ANS division focuses on numerical simulations and theoretical studies of the climate variability. Within the ANS a research group “Ocean Forecasting” has been formed in order to develop a complex numerical model and data assimilation system for the future operational production of global oceanographic analyses and forecasts at a very high resolution. The group will construct and implement novel technical and scientific solutions that will fully exploit large computational resources.

Work description
The main duties will be to set-up, calibrate and validate a global high resolution ocean model together with a data assimilation scheme in order to carry out predictability studies for the short term ocean forecasting. The experiments will be run on a massively parallel supercomputer. 

Academic Background and Qualifications
The candidates should have a Ph.D. in Oceanography, Atmospheric Sciences or related disciplines and experience in numerical modeling. A knowledge of the NEMO ocean model and data assimilation will be considered a plus. Basic knowledge of Unix and Fortran is required.

Working language

To Apply
Applicants should send by electronic mail to Dr. Srdjan Dobricic ( a cover letter describing areas of expertise and research interests and a comprehensive curriculum vitae including names and addresses of three reference scientists .

The starting salary offer will be 30000 Euro a year and it will be increased depending on the experience and years from the Ph.D.
