The Oeschger Centre for Climate Change Research
<http://www.oeschger.unibe.ch/>, University of Bern, Switzerland, opens
a postdoctoral position in

Regional Climate Modeling and Statistical-Dynamical Downscaling (80 –
100%, 2 years, renewable to max. 4 years)

We invite applications from enthusiastic highly motivated young
researchers with a demonstrated strong background in regional climate
modeling and/or statistical-dynamical downscaling. The successful
candidate will be hosted at the Climate Modeling Group in Climate- and
Environmental Physics. He/she will closely collaborate with other
research teams of the Oeschger Centre working in Climate Risk Analysis
(wind, precipitation), Climate Impacts and Extreme Events in complex
topography (Central Europe, Switzerland, Alps). He/she will design,
perform, test and analyze RCM (WRF) model simulations to investigate
atmospheric processes at high spatial resolution and provide data sets
for impact modeling studies.

The ideal candidate holds a PhD in meteorology, atmospheric sciences,
physics or environmental sciences, has demonstrated experience in
Regional Climate Modeling (ideally WRF). A background in atmospheric
dynamics and statistics is an advantage. Experience with large data sets
and computer skills (FORTRAN, MATLAB, R/S-Plus, NCL, and
shell-programming on Unix or Linux platforms) is required. Very good
English language skills (and basic German), a competitive publications
record and strong interpersonal skills are further assets. The candidate
will have the possibility to co-supervise MSc and PhD students.
Applications from female candidates are encouraged.

The position is available from July 2013 or upon arrangement. Gross
salary depends on age and experience according to University regulations.

Review of applicants starts on June 7, 2013 and continues until the
position is filled. For details about the position and informal
enquiries please contact: PD Dr. Christoph Raible

Applications (ONE pdf with CV, letter of motivation with a 1-page
statement of research interests, copy of PhD certificate, abstract of
the PhD Thesis, publication list, names and addresses of three referees;
pdf of PhD Thesis is available) should be electronically sent to:
