Scientist regional scale climate modeling The Research and Development Department (R & D Department) of the Norwegian Meteorological Institute is responsible for developing and increase the knowledge about climate and climate outlook, weather and ocean forecast and air pollution. The R & D Department participates in national and international collaboration and has about 75 employees in five divisions: Division for Model and Climate analysis, Division for numerical weather prediction, Division for Ocean and Ice, Division for Climate Modeling and Air Pollution, and the Division for Operational Oceanography and Marine Meteorology. A new permanent research position in regional climate modelling, affiliated with the Division for Model and Climate analyses, is now open for application. The division has 14 employees where the research agenda is centered around verification of weather forecasts, downscaling of global climate model projections, analyses and evaluation of climate model calculations in general, the analysis of historical climate and scenarios for future climate, improved understanding of physical processes as well as dissemination of climate knowledge. The development of climate services is a major driving force behind the new position. The main part of the research at the R&D Department is externally funded, and the work in the division is project oriented with both internal and external national and international partners. The new scientist is expected to engage in: • establishing and developing the operational non-hydrostatic numerical weather prediction model at the institute (Arome-Harmonie) into a regional climate modell, in collaboration with other partners of the Hirlam-Harmonie-consortium • participate in the high spatial resolution modelling of historical and future climate of Norway and adjacent areas including Svalbard. • the development of bias correction methods of regional climate model downscaling calculations to make the results suitable for end users • evaluating the results of global and regional climate model simulations • publishing scientific research results • contributing to the development of national and international research networks, and take an active part in the acquisition of external research funding • take part in additional activities and reporting responsibilities Qualifications requirements: • Higher education at master's or doctoral degree within geophysics, physics, mathematical modeling or equivalent. Research merits documented through publication or basic method development will be emphasized. • Good knowledge of dynamic climate modeling and numerical weather eg. from the use of WRF, Harmonie or equivalent. • Good knowledge of programming (like R, C / C + + and Fortran), and experience with Linux or equivalent. Experience with efficient use of massively parallel computers is an advantage. • Knowledge of empirical-statistical downscaling methods is an advantage We seek a person who: • is systematic, responsible and result oriented • has experience, ability and desire to work project organized, which includes contact with end users • have good interpersonal skills, ability to work independently and in groups • have clear written and oral presentation skills in English. Good oral presentation skills in Norwegian (Scandinavian) is an advantage. We offer:: • A challenging research environment • Excellent opportunities for personal development • Flexible working hours • Pay as 1108/1109/1110/1183 researcher depending on qualifications • Membership in the Governmental Pension Scheme • 6 months’ trial period It is an objective that the staff shall reflect the composition of the population in general when it comes to cultural diversity.
