[Sorry for cross-posting]
The Laboratoire des Science du Climat et de l’Environnement (LSCE) offers a postdoctoral position for the A2C2 (Atmospheric flow Analogues and Climate Change) project, funded by the ERC. The general goal of the project is to investigate statistical properties of climatic strange attractors, and their changes due to external forcings. A mathematical framework is being developed to measure attractor changes. This framework is based on the method of analogues of circulation. The goal of the postdoctoral position is to investigate how/why the statistical properties of the atmospheric circulation have changed during the past millennium, and how this alters the probability of observing extremes events. The candidate will evaluate the probability distribution of climate variables from atmospheric flow analogues, in millennium climate simulations (from the CMIP5 and PMIP3 databases).

The position is for 2+2 years. The salary is commensurate with experience. The position will start in June 2014. LSCE is located in the South West suburb of Paris. The candidate will work in the ESTIMR (Extremes, Statistics, Impacts & Regionalization) team. Please send a CV (including list of publications), letter of motivation (stating how your experience is related to the postdoc offer) and two letters of recommendation before March 1st 2014.
