Forwarded from CLIMLIST... Subject PhD position Arctic Climate (Temporary position) Date 11 October 2013 Number KNMI 2013/12 At the Global Climate Division of KNMI, in De Bilt, The Netherlands, there is a temporary position for: PhD student in Arctic climate research General information KNMI is the national Dutch knowledge center for climate and climate change. An important KNMI task is therefore to assess and interpret climate changes and to make scenarios of local and regional climate change to support adaptation policies and measures. For this we cooperate with established researchers, both nationally and internationally. In doing climate research and for making the climate scenarios we employ numerical models of the large-scale circulation in the atmosphere and ocean coupled to sea ice and land modules. Additionally, we make use of observations of the climate system Job information An important question is to what extent near-future climate changes in the Arctic regions will impact the West-European and Dutch climate, including extremes (for example cold winters), and what will be the governing mechanisms. Within this project we will use high-resolution global climate models, including the in-house model EC-Earth, to investigate these influences in detail. Moreover, the projected warming of the Arctic and the associated reduction in sea ice will have consequences for Dutch socio-economic activities in the Arctic (oil/gas exploitation, fishery, shipping/transport, tourism), and will thereby impact relevant policies. Within this project we will address the climatological boundary conditions related to the relevant policy areas using the aforementioned climate models, including the associated uncertainties. The PhD student will work in the department Global Climate of the KNMI under the supervision of dr. R. Bintanja. The research will lead to a doctoral degree (PhD) at Wageningen University. Required We seek an innovative, result-oriented candidate with good multidisciplinary skills who is able to work in a team, and with the following qualifications: • MSc in meteorology or a related study area • Excellent analytical skills, knowledge of physical climate mechanisms en of statistical methods in weather and climate research • Experience in (large) numerical modeling •Experience in programming (e.g. Fo rtran), Linux, and visualization and analyses software is desirable • Affinity with climate and climate change research • Fluent in English (verbally and in writing) Location: De Bilt Salary: Start at max. € 1.934,18 gross per month after 1 year max. € 2.047,12 gross per month after 2 years max. € 2.222,13 gross per month after 3 years max. € 2.571,64 gross per month Details The position is temporary for a period of 4 years.
