Forwarded from CLIMLIST... Dear colleagues! The Institute of Meteorology from the Freie Universität Berlin (Germany) invites applications to the open position of a PhD student, in the area of evaluation and handling model uncertainties. Dept. of Earth Sciences - Institute of Meteorology PhD Position (part time - 50%) Current funding is available for three years (01.09.2012 – 31.08.2015) Salary according to the german civil service E13 TV-L (~1500 Euro pre-tax) MiKlip (<www.fona-miklip.de/>) is a major program funded by BMBF for conducting research on decadal climate prediction. Different modules on initial conditions/initialisation (A), processes and modelling (B), regionalisation (C), synthesis (D) and validation (E) cooperate in developing a model system for forecasting the near future of both natural variability and anthropogenic climate change. The following position is open at Freie Universität Berlin: Job description: As part of MiKlip module D, an integrated data and application system for standardised evaluation of model simulations will be developed. This work means applying and optimising the evaluation system. The focus will be on the exploration and documentation of uncertainties related to the choice of different observation based evaluation datasets, the assessment of the robustness of the employed metrics used for standardised evaluation and the improved representation of the uncertainties for selected probabilistic forecast products. The position is suited for preparing a PhD thesis. Conditions of Employment: Master or equivalent in the field of natural or engineering sciences, mathematics or computer sciences. Required: + Experience in the evaluation of global and regional climate models + Experience in the field of ensemble forecasting, seasonal to decadal prediction + Good knowledge of statistical methods in climate modelling + Ability to conduct scientific work independently as well as to work in a team and the willingness to travel + Computing skills: Web based communication tools, Linux, experience with programming languages (e.g. Fortran, C/C++), statistical software & graphics programs (e.g. Matlab, R, etc.) + Fluency in English, good knowledge of German is advantageous Applications including all relevant documents and quoting the mentioned application code 24032600/2012/MikInt01 should be submitted by August, 20th 2012 to <email@example.com/> or mail to Freie Universität Berlin Fachbereich Geowissenschaften Institut f. Meteorologie Herrn Prof. Dr. Ulrich Cubasch Carl-Heinrich-Becker-Weg 6-10 12165 Berlin GERMANY Feel welcome to circulate the advertisement among potential candidates and colleagues. Best regards, Christopher Kadow
