A three years position as Research Associate in paleoclimate modeling is available at the Centre for Earth Evolution and Dynamics (CEED).

The main goal of the newly established Norwegian Center of Excellence CEED is to develop a model that explains how mantle processes drive plate tectonics and trigger massive volcanism and associated environmental and climate changes throughout Earth's history. Research on paleoclimates is one of CEED core activities. Researchers in the “Dynamic Earth” and “Earth Crises” groups aim to understand the interactions between solid earth carbon degassing in continental and oceanic areas and the resulting atmospheric and biospheric impacts, on a range of temporal scales.

We call upon a researcher at senior level who is able to do cutting edge research within at least one of the following fields: 1) state of the art, intermediate to high complexity climate modelling, 2) biogeochemical cycle modelling with an emphasis on atmospheric changes, including carbon (CO2, CH4, fluxes, isotopes), nitrogen and reactive species. The position will bridge the current gap between the on-going plate tectonic modelling and the proxy data and degassing studies. The focus of the position will primarily be on Cenozoic and pre-Cenozoic systems, but other epochs can also be considered. Documented experience with climatic proxy data and pCO2 reconstructions over geological time scales is an advantage.

CEED provides a stimulating and well-funded research environment and offers a broad interdisciplinary computation and numerical simulation environment. Access to local and national supercomputer facilities is also available. Information about CEED is available at:

Requirements. Applicants should have a doctoral degree and experience in climate and/or biogeochemical cycle modeling. The candidate should document research on an internationally competitive level. Experience in initiation and management of large inter-institutional projects and networks, in particular EU project, is desirable. Application for supplementary European and Norwegian funding will be encouraged and expected. Ability and preference for working in teams are highly valued qualities.

Salary. Position code 1109, Pay Grade: 60 – 66 (493 900 to 552 700 NOK per year, depending on qualifications and seniority).

Application deadline is 01 June 2013, with an expected starting date in Autumn 2013.
