Post-doc research position in Indian Ocean and Indian summer monsoon climate variability

CMCC (Centro Euro-Mediterraneo per i Cambiamenti Climatici) is a Consortium consisting of different Italian public and private research
institutions dedicated to climate-related research.

In the CMCC, the Division ANS (Numerical Analysis and Scenarios) focuses on the study, through numerical simulations and theoretical analysis, of the natural variability of the climate and the climatic changes, with a particular emphasis on the European and Mediterranean region. The group applies numerical models of different complexity and realism, from simple and linear models to more complete and coupled models atmosphere- ocean - sea-ice - vegetation - marine biogeochemistry.

This Division is now seeking a post-doc research fellow to work on Indian Ocean and Indian summer monsoon climate variability within INDO-MARECLIM collaborative project. Main duties will be to perform analysis of climate variability and change on the Indian summer monsoon region. Emphasis will be dedicated to the role of the Indian Ocean variability, including its recent trend. The post-doc fellow will be asked to analyze both model outputs and observations/reanalysis data, to perform GCM experiments and to participate to the project activities in terms of workshops and summer schools.

The candidates should have a Ph.D. in Atmospheric Sciences, Oceanography, Environmental Sciences or related disciplines and experience in numerical modeling. Basic knowledge of Unix and Fortran is required.

Applicants should send by electronic mail to Dr. Annalisa Cherchi ( a cover letter describing areas of expertise and research interests and a comprehensive curriculum vitae including names and addresses of two reference scientists.
