Dear Sir/Madam

The EU FP7 funded Marie Curie Initial Training Network Learning about
Interacting Networks in Climate (LINC is inviting applications
for 10 PhD positions and 3 Posdoctoral positions.  Please find the
details below. I would appreciate if you could post this information
or pass it to master students (who will be graduating soon, for the 10
PhD positions) and
PhD students (for the 3 Posdoctoral positions). Applicants can be of any
nacionality and Marie Curie salaries are very competitive. LINC aims
at increasing the fraction of woman in science and female candidates
are therefore particularly
encouraged to apply.

Thanks in advance,

Cristina Masoller, Profesora Agregada
Departament de Física i Enginyeria Nuclear,
Escola Tècnica Superior d"Enginyeries Industrial i Aeronàutica de Terrassa,
Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya.
Colom 11, Terrassa 08222, Barcelona, Spain,


The Marie-Curie EU FP7 funded Initial Training Network Learning about
Interactive Networks in Climate (LINC) invites applications for

10 Early-Stage Researchers (ESR) at the PhD student level

3 Experienced Researchers (ER) at the post-doctoral level

Improving our understanding of the Earth's complex climate phenomena,
such as El Niño, has a huge economic and social impact for present and
future generations, and can underpin advances in areas as diverse as
energy, environment, agricultural, etc. The LINC network aims at
training young researchers in the complete set of skills required to
undertake a career in physics and geosciences with expertise in
climatology, networks and complex systems. The training program will
combine recent advances in network methodologies with state-of-the-
art climate understanding.

The LINC consortium comprises 6 academic partners and 3 private-sector
partners that have wide expertise on complex systems (network
construction, nonlinear time series analysis), environment and
geosciences (nonlinear processes in the oceans and atmosphere) and
commercial applications (climate risk analysis, using climate networks
to predict extreme events). The skills to be imparted during the LINC
training program can be applied across a wide range of
interdisciplinary fields. In LINC the mobility of researchers will be
aided by secondments at academic and commercial partners, a series of
workshops, two schools and a final conference.

Keywords: Complex systems, Complex networks, Network theory,
Climatology, Environmental science, Nonlinear dynamics, Physics of
Ocean and Atmosphere, Time series analysis, Tipping points, Climate

Consortium: Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (Coordinador,
Barcelona, Spain), Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research
Germany), Bar-Ilan University (Israel), Utrecht University (The
Netherlands), Universidad de la República (Montevideo, Uruguay),
Universitat de les Illes Balears (Palma de Mallorca, Spain), Climate
Risk Analysis (Hannover, Germany), Ambrosys (Potsdam, Germany),
Vortech (The Netherlands).

EU funding imposes strict requirements on eligibility: At the time of
recruitment the researcher must not have resided or carried out
his/her main activity (work, studies, etc...) in the country of the host
institute (for example, if applying for a position in Germany, he/she
must not have been a resident in Germany for more than 12 months in
the 3 years immediately prior to his/her recruitment under the
project). He/she also should have less than 4 years of research
experience, measured from the date they obtained the degree which
formally entitles them to embark on a doctorate.

LINC aims at increasing the fraction of woman in science and female
candidates are therefore particularly encouraged to apply.
