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

Field of work
The ReLoClim Research Group (<>) of the Wegener
Center for Climate and Global Change develops climate scenarios and
investigates the regional impacts of climate change in the framework of
national and international projects. We are searching for a highly
motivated member (Post Doc) to strengthen our research team in the field
of dynamical downscaling and regional climate modelling. He/she will
investigate precipitation (including extremes), its precursor processes,
and effects of climate change in the European Alpine region by means of
regional climate models on convection permitting scales. Challenging
research questions from our international model intercomparison
activities will provide the opportunity to develop his/her research
ideas (also in close cooperation with statistic climate modellers of
ReLoClim). The successful candidate will be strongly supported in
investigating these ideas by means of own research projects on the
longer term.

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 ×
per year; before taxes and social security contributions). The salary
follows the collective agreement of the University of Graz. Duration:
Initially, 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 in mountainous regions
• Experience in dynamical downscaling and in operating regional climate
models (ideally COSMO-CLM)
• Analytical orientation, independent work style, organizing abilities
• Strong empathy for project acquisition
• Ability to work in a team, good command of English
• Experience in programming (ideally IDL, FORTRAN, R)
Further information can be obtained from Dr. Heimo Truhetz

Application deadline: 31st July, 2014

If you are interested, please send your application (Letter of
Application, CV, suitable inserts) within the closing date per e-mail to
<> (subject: PostDoc ReloClim) 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.

Short Information —Wegener Center
  The Wegener Center for Climate and Global Change is an
interdisciplinary, internationally oriented institute of the University
of Graz (Faculty of Environmental and Regional Sciences and Education,
with base institutes also in the Faculties of Natural Sciences and
Social and Economic Sciences), which combines the competences of the
university in the research area "Climate, Environmental, and Global
Change". The institute brings together research teams and scientists
from fields such as geophysics and climate physics, meteorology,
economics, geography, and regional sciences. At the same time, close
links exist and are further developed with many cooperating national and
international partners. The research interests extend from monitoring,
analysis, modelling and prediction of climate and environmental change
via climate impact research to the analysis of the human dimensions of
these changes (for more details please see <>).

Thank you for your your attention!
