Forwarded from CLIMLIST... 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) - Analytical orientation, independent work style, organizing abilities - Ideally experience in, but at least the aim to lead a small research team and to acquire projects. - Very good command of English Further information can be obtained from Dr. Andreas Gobiet (<email@example.com>). If you are interested please send your application (Letter of Application, CV, suitable inserts) per e-mail to <firstname.lastname@example.org>. Application deadline: 31st March, 2014. The University of Graz is striving to increase the percentage of women employed at the university and therefore expressly invites qualified women to apply. Priority is given to equally qualified women.
