PhD stipend available

A 4-year PhD stipend is available at the Faculty of Geosciences, Freie
Universität Berlin (Germany), under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Pavel
Tarasov (Institute of Geological Sciences) and Prof. Dr. Ulrich Cubasch
(Institute of Meteorology). The PhD program will form part of the
“Baikal-Hokkaido Archaeology Project (BHAP)”
(<>). BHAP unites a multi-disciplinary
team of scholars investigating Holocene hunter-gatherer cultural
dynamics in the Lake Baikal region of Siberia and in the Hokkaido region
of NW Pacific and the role of environmental and climatic factors in
reconstructing culture/population changes. The project running time is
seven years (2011-2017) and is primarily supported by the Major
Collaborative Research Initiative (MCRI) program of the Social Sciences
and Humanities Research Council of Canada. The MCRI program supports
leading-edge research with true potential for intellectual breakthrough
that addresses broad and critical issues of intellectual, social,
economic and cultural significance through the effective coordination
and integration of diverse research activities and research results.

Payment The selected candidate will be funded by BHAP and will have a
stipend of 15,000 Canadian dollars (c. 11,700 Euro) per year for a
maximum of four years. Furthermore, BHAP will provide an appropriate
computer for climate modeling and funding for conference and networking
travel up to 1500 Canadian dollars (c. 1700 Euro) over four years.

Qualifications Eligible candidates must have gained a university degree
in the field of Meteorology, Atmospheric Sciences or Earth system
modeling. Good knowledge of English and previous experience of working
with General Circulation Models and regional models would also be
desirable. The PhD project will focus on the modeling of the Holocene
climate and vegetation in central and eastern Asia (including the Lake
Baikal and Hokkaido regions) using the high-resolution community GCM and
the regional community climate model at the Climate System Modeling
Working Group (Institute of Meteorology, FU Berlin). Validation of the
modeling results and proxy data-model comparison will be achieved via
cooperation with the Palaeoenvironmental Research Group (Institute of
Geological Sciences, FU Berlin)

Candidates are encouraged to send their CV, a student record with copies
of university diploma/master graduation certificate, and names of two
potential referees to <> before the 15th of
January 2013. We are interested that the successful candidate starts
working as soon as possible.
