Forwarded from CLIMLIST... Job opportunity PhD Position in the area of Regional Climate Research at the Wegener Center for Climate and Global Change, University of Graz Field of work The ReLoClim Research Group (<www.wegcenter.at/reloclim>) of the Wegener Center for Climate and Global Change develops climate scenarios and investigates the regional impacts of climate change in the framework of national and international projects. We are searching for a new member (PhD student) of our highly motivated research team. The successful candidate will start to work in the framework of a basic research project, funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF), which investigates highly resolved (convection-permitting) regional climate models (RCMs) and their ability to capture important climate processes in the European Alpine region. In particular, the candidate will focus on turbulence in the Planetary Boundary Layer (PBL) and will investigate turbulence parameterisation schemes and their impacts on the Alp’s (modelled) shielding effect (dynamics of the atmosphere, orographic precipitation). This will support both, model improvements and regional climate modelling applications. Job Profile Position: PhD position, part-time (30 hours/week), position can be filled as soon as possible. Gross salary: € 1’933.30 gross/month (14 × per year, taxes and social security contributions have to be subtracted). The salary follows the FWF scheme for PhD students (<http://www.fwf.ac.at/de/projects/personalkostensaetze.html>). Duration: Two years with the option for extension. Requested knowledge and skills: -Degree (MSc. level) in natural sciences (e.g. meteorology, physics, geophysics, mathematics, geography), ideally with emphasis on PBL turbulence. -Experience and interest in climate research and meteorology. -Experience in programming (ideally IDL, FORTRAN, R). -Analytical orientation, independent work style, organizing abilities. -Ability to work in a team, good command of English. Further information can be obtained from Dr. Heimo Truhetz (<firstname.lastname@example.org>). Application deadline: 8th March, 2013 If you are interested, please send your application (Letter of application, CV, suitable inserts) within the closing date per e-mail to <email@example.com> The University of Graz is striving to increase the percentage of women employed at the university and therefore expressly invites qualified women to apply. Priority is given to equally qualified women. Short Information —Wegener Center The Wegener Center for Climate and Global Change is an interdisciplinary, internationally oriented research center of the University of Graz (Faculty of Environmental and Regional Sciences and Education, with base institutes also in the Faculties of Natural Sciences and Social and Economic Sciences), which combines the competences of the university in the research areas "Climate, Environmental, and Global Change". The center brings together research teams and scientists from fields such as geophysics and climate physics, meteorology, economics, geography, and regional sciences. At the same time, close links exist and are further developed with many cooperation partners, both nationally and internationally. The research interests extend from monitoring, analysis, modelling and prediction of climate and environmental change via climate impact research to the analysis of the human dimensions of these changes (for more details please see <www.wegce>
