Forwarded from CLIMLIST... 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)” (<http://bhap.artsrn.ualberta.ca/>). 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 <firstname.lastname@example.org> before the 15th of January 2013. We are interested that the successful candidate starts working as soon as possible. -- Prof. Dr. Pavel E.
