Forwarded from CLIMLIST... 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 (<www.wegcenter.at/reloclim>) 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 (<email@example.com>). 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 <firstname.lastname@example.org> (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 <www.wegcenter.at>). ------------ Thank you for your your attention! -- Sabine Tschuertz | Wegener Center for Climate and Global Change | University of Graz (WegCenter/UniGraz) | Brandhofgasse 5, A-8010 Graz, Austria | eMail: email@example.com | Web: www.wegcenter.at
