PostDoc Position in the area of Regional Climate Research at the Wegener
Center for Climate and Global Change, University of Graz, Austria

Field of work: The ReLoClim Research Group (<www.wegcenter.at/reloclim>)
of the Wegener Center for Climate and Global Change focuses on climate
processes and climate change on regional and local scales, develops
regional climate scenarios, and investigates the impacts of climate
change in the framework of national and inter-national projects. We are
searching a highly motivated member (Post Doc) of our research team, who
will get the opportunity to develop her/his research ideas in the field
of empirical-statistical downscaling and bias correction and, more
generally, in the interface between climate modelling and climate change
impact research. He/she will work in close cooperation with dynamical
climate modellers within the research group. Initial funding is provided
by two projects for 18 months, one focusing on convective extreme
precipitation events and their representation in convection permitting
regional climate models, the other on the effect of weather conditions
on winter mortality of honey bees. The successful candidate will be
strongly supported in developing a longer term research strategy within
the Wegener Center and get the opportunity to build up a small research
team, depending on the success of project applications.

Job profile: Position: Post Doc position, full time (40 hours/week),
position can be filled as soon as possible. Gross salary: € 3.483,30
gross/month (14 times per year). Duration: Initially for 1.5 years with
the aim for extension. Requested knowledge and skills:

- PhD Degree in natural sciences (e.g. meteorology, physics, geophysics,
mathematics, geography), ideally with emphasis on
meteorology/climatology/statistics
- Experience in the application of statistical methods in climate
sciences. In particular, experience in model output statistics (MOS),
bias correction, and statistical downscaling are welcome.
- Experience in programming (ideally R, IDL, FORTRAN)
