Job opening at Uni Research Ltd in Bergen, Norway:


Uni Computing is a division of Uni Research (, a Bergen-based 
company, and one of the largest actors in Norway's research-institute sector. 
Within Uni Computing, the Environmental Flow Group simulates, analyses and 
evaluates a wide range of fluid flows, with an emphasis on the atmosphere and 
ocean at local scales. Much of the numerical modelling is funded through the 
Norwegian Centre for Offshore Wind Energy (  The Group 
collaborates closely with the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research 
(, an internationally-leading centre for climate modelling. 
Researchers are recruited with backgrounds in meteorology, oceanography, 
geology, physics and mathematics.

A scientific position as either a fixed-term Researcher or permanent Senior 
Researcher is available at Uni Computing, Bergen, Norway. Applicants with 
experience in numerical modelling and local-scale meteorology are sought. A PhD 
in physics, mathematics, oceanography, meteorology, computer science or a 
related discipline is required, along with competence in prognostic meteorology 
and use of the Weather Research and Forecasting model (WRF). Applicants should 
have good knowledge of scientific programming using Fortran, preferably in a 
Linux environment. Regular reporting of results will be required.

An understanding of ocean waves and wind energy, and a familiarity with 
computational fluid dynamics, large datasets and model validation would all be 
advantageous. Candidates must be self-motivated while also flexible and 
comfortable in team work, and have the ability to advance a scientific career 
in meteorology and related disciplines. Applications from women are 
particularly welcome. The fixed-term position is for two years, with the 
possibility of extension. A good publication track record, evidencing a keen 
interest in boundary-layer physics, is required for appointment at senior 
level. Further information can be obtained from Group Leader Angus Graham, 
e-mail:, phone: +47 55584656.
