Postdoc researcher in the domain of sea level research (1,0 fte)

Job description

IMAU is looking for a motivated Postdoctoral researcher (m/f) to work on sea 
level projections building on the work we have done over the last few years. 
Until recently, sea level projections were mainly on a global scale and 
uncertainties were poorly constrained. In this project we will try to bridge 
the gap between these global scale projection and the need of coastal 
management. We will explore possibilities to address the probability of sea 
level rise at a local scale for future warmer climate states. Emphasize will be 
at the North-Sea region.


Applicants preferably have a strong background in meteorology/geophysics at PhD 
level, and have experience with numerical (climate) models and programming on 
UNIX-based computer systems. Good English oral and writing skills are essential 
and a track record of published papers is a prerequisite.


The candidate is offered a full-time position for 3 years. The salary ranges 
between € 2,403.- and € 4,418.- gross per month.The salary is supplemented with 
a holiday bonus of 8% and an end-of-year bonus of 8,3% per year.

In addition we offer: a pension scheme, a partially paid parental leave, 
flexible employment conditions. Conditions are based on the Collective Labour 
Agreement Dutch Universities. The research group will provide the candidate 
with necessary support on all aspects of the project. More information look at
