The group of Climatology of the Institute of Geography, University of
Bern, is offerig a PhD position in the framework of an interdisciplinary
project on the solar influence on climate. The task of the successful

measures in climate model simulations, and to analyse both with respect
to low-frequency changes and possible effects of changes in solar activity.

The candidate should have a strong basis in climate physics (MSc in
Atmospheric Physics, Geography, Geophysics, Environmental Sciences or
similar), experience in handling large, gridded geophysical data sets
(specifically climate model output or reanalyses) and proven skills in
data processing (Fortran, MATLAB, IDL) and statistics (R or similar).
