mechanisms of extreme weather (e.g., hot and cold temperatures,
precipitation, drought) over Europe and Russia under natural and
anthropogenic climate change.

The student will be supervised by Prof. Dr. Douglas Maraun and Dr.
Wonsun Park and work on global/regional climate modelling over Europe
focusing on extreme events. He/She will closely collaborate with a
second PhD-student at the institute focusing on statistical analyses.
The project also offers and requires several visits to collaborate with
project partners at the Institute of Atmospheric Physics IAPRAS and the
Institute of Oceanology IORAS in Moscow, Russia.

The successful candidate will have a degree in meteorology, climatology
or a related quantitative science with proven expertise in analysing
large data simulated by regional/global climate models. Modelling
experience with global or regional climate models, atmosphere only or
atmosphere-ocean coupled models will be beneficial.
