Forwarded from CLIMLIST... POSTDOC vacancy (Temporary position) Date 10 oktober 2013 Number KNMI 2013/11 At the Global Climate Division of the KNMI, in De Bilt, the Netherlands, there is a temporary position for: Post doc General information KNMI is the national knowledge institute on weather, climate and climate change in the Netherlands. An important task of KNMI is to describe and attribute changes in climate. KNMI develops and publishes national climate change scenarios which are primarily aimed to guide climate adaptation. KNMI collaborates with national and international institutions and researchers. Numerical models of the large scale atmospheric and oceanic circulation, of sea ice and of the land surface are used for climate research and development of climate scenarios. Also observations of the climate system are used to diagnose climate variability and change. Job information After nearly every extreme weather event the question rises whether anthropogenic climate change has contributed to it and whether the occurrence and amplitude of extreme events will change in the future. The candidate will contribute to research on extreme events as part of the international SPECS and EUCLEIA projects sponsored by the European. The candidate will investigate the predictability of extreme events and to what extend they can be attributed to natural climate processes and to anthro pogenic climate change. The candidate will investigate physical processes of a selected number of extreme weather events that occurred recently. Observations, reanalysis data and specific numerical model simulations will be used for that purpose. Also, the candidate will make climate predictions with a statistical model and compare it to predictions made with the complex climate model EC-Earth. Required • Phd in meteorology or a similar field of studies • Analytical skills, knowledge of meteorological and physical climate processes and of statistical methods used in weather and climate research. • Ample experience with the technical environment of complex numerical models (compilers, libraries, version management etc) • Fluent in English (spoken and written) Working place: De Bilt Salary: Max € 4.380,72 gross per month (salaryscale 11) Details The position is temporary for a period of 3 years. More information can be obtained from prof. dr. ir. Wilco Hazeleger, telephone number +31 (0)30-2206718, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org A letter of motivation and curriculum vitae should be sent by e-mail before 6 November 2013 with reference to vacancynumber KNMI 2013/11 to: email@example.com
