Forwarded from CLIMLIST... Post-doctoral position in Paleoclimate Modelling at the Department of Physical Geography and Quaternary Geology and financed through the Bert Bolin Centre for Climate Research. Reference number SU 619-3021-11. Deadline for applications: December 15, 2011. The Department of Physical Geography and Quaternary Geology is one of the major departments within the Faculty of Science at Stockholm University. The department has approximately 120 employees and educates approximately 1 500 students annually. The main research areas are “Climate, environment and landscape”, “Landscape analysis and geomatics”, “Glacier and polar environments” and “Land and water resources”. Education is oriented towards geography, biology-earth sciences, geosciences and environmental protection. The Department of Physical Geography and Quaternary Geology invites applications for a two-year post-doctoral position in Paleoclimate Modelling funded through the Bert Bolin Centre for Climate Research. The mission of the Bert Bolin Centre for Climate Research is to conduct fundamental research on critical processes in the climate system. The successful applicant will be engaged in the modelling of the climate of the last millennium. Job description: We are recruiting a postdoctoral scientist to work in a project that aims at understanding the dynamics and variability, both forced and unforced, of the large-scale atmospheric circulation systems with special focus on the Hadley circulation and across a range of time scales within the last millennium. The project will contain two lines of work: 1) conduct new climate simulations for parts of the past millennium with a coupled atmosphere-ocean General Circulation Model and analyse some existing simulations; 2) interpret the results of these simulations in the light of existing climate reconstructions based on proxy records. Required qualifications: These tasks require a background in climate dynamics, atmospheric circulation, familiarity with programming languages, preferably Fortran and Unix systems, and an experience with statistical concepts required in the analysis of large observational and simulated data sets. Experience of using climate proxy records with respect to their suitability as indicators of past atmospheric circulation changes is a merit. We require that the successful applicant has a PhD in Meteorology, Earth System Science, or another closely related discipline combined with experience of climate modelling. The applicant must have obtained a Ph.D. in the past 3 years (from application deadline). Terms of employment: Two-year post-doctoral position. Envisioned start date is January 1, 2012 (although this can be negotiated). Stockholm University strives to be a workplace free from discrimination and gives equal opportunity for all. Information: For additional information, contact Dr. Eduardo Zorita, <firstname.lastname@example.org>. Application: Please include a cover letter outlining your qualifications, relevant experiences and interest in the position; a CV; a copy of your university degree(s); and any other documents you would like to include with your application. The application, quoting the reference number SU 619-3021-11, should arrive no later than December 15, 2011, to: Stockholm University Registrar/PÄ SE-106 91 STOCKHOLM SWEDEN or by e-mail to: <email@example.com>. Applications sent by e-mail should be in Word or PDF format. Note! Please include the reference number SU 619-3021-11 in the message/subject line of your e-mail.
