Forwarded from CLIMLIST... The Institute for Coastal Research of the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht (Germany) invites applications for a 3 year Ph.D. position Ph.D. position (m/f) code no. 2013/KS 3 starting April 1st, 2014, as part of the European Initial Training Network ARAMACC Annually-resolved archives of marine climate change - development of molluscan sclerochronology for marine environmental monitoring and climatology, a collaboration between nine internationally-renowned research teams in UK, Germany, Norway, Croatia, France, Netherlands and Portugal <aramacc.com> . The overall objectives of the project are the construction of a network of shell-based chronologies over the past few centuries for the climatically important North East Atlantic region and understand their decadal and mutidecadal variations with the help of their joint analysis of millennial climate simulations with global atmosphere-ocean models. This position is based at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht. The successful candidate will analyse climate simulations over the past millennium belonging to the Climate Model Intercomparison Project, and are already available. The focus of the analysis will lie in the decadal and multidecadal variability in the North Atlantic region with special emphasis on the ocean circulation and the coupling between the atmosphere and the ocean. One main objective will be to compare these climate simulations with the information provided by the molluscan chronologies, assess the level of coherence between models and reconstructions and help mechanistically explain the variability observed in the chronologies. The successful candidate ideally holds a degree in oceanography, meteorology, physics, environmental sciences, and is familiar with the statistical analysis of large climate data sets, in particular of ocean simulations. Some familiarity with software tools, such as R, Mathematica, Matlab or Fortran is an advantage. Experience with Linux/Unix computer environments is required. A genuine interest in areas beyond climate modelling is highly desirable, such as the interpretation of climate proxy records. Very good command of English, written and spoken, is required. For this position the EU mobility rules apply. At the time of recruitment by the host organisation, researchers must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc) in the country of their host organisation for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the reference date. The Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht is an equal opportunity employer for women, minorities, and people with disabilities, and strives to increase the percentage of women in the science sector. Severely disabled persons with equal qualifications will be considered preferentially. Please, send your application as single pdf-file (!) including a short letter of motivation, CV, and list of publications indicating job offer code no. 2013/KS 3 to our human resources <firstname.lastname@example.org> and to <email@example.com> Application period from November 12th, 2013 to January 15th, 2014
